Old Business :  1)  President advised of small trip to Cape Tourmentine.  Group left Moncton, went around Aboiteau, Shemegue, Murry Beach, Cape Jourmaine which was still closed but people found toilets in the back trails as there were few portables.  The group then proceeded to Cape Tourmentine to Upper Cape, Port Elgin and stopped at new Shell at the rotary then proceeded to Aulac Irving, as we went some participants dropped off which was ok,  15 cars participated.
2)  Group visited Michel LeBlanc collection in Cape Pele, toured newest of collectables water wheel house in front of the house which doubles as old machine shop, old steel wheel tractors on lawn , old trucks etc.  had a few members who had never been to see the collection before.  Still amazes people as the variety and size of this collection steel signs, neon signs, bottles, cans etc, etc.  Members all but a few went to Cap Bimet to Paturel Restaurant for our meal, very nice atmosphere.  Restaurant is owned by Michel and was part of the deal to visit his private collection.
3)  $155 was raised with the sale of Mobile 1 oil for charity, Charles Richard bid $80 for 2 and Tom Osler bid $75 for the other 2.  Our group will need to decide what charity to donate this money to.  Suggestions such as cystic fibrosis, Beaverbrook School, Atlantic Wellness as well as any others that members can think of.   The club could top the donation up to $200 and a decision will be made at the next meeting for the charity.
