Meadow Creek Airpark will host its annual open house fly in/drive in on Saturday August 21 from 10 to 3. Bring your collector car/truck to display, there is no entry fee. Our own Dennis Heywood will undoubtedly have several of his own cars on display. A number of aircraft will also be arriving/departing, with some of the owners offering rides in their machines.
Meadow Creek entrance is on Harlem Avenue, just north of Monee Road.
FALL FEST PARADE
On Sunday September 5th, we have 2 related FCC events- our annual Car display on Elwood Street and participation in the actual Fall Fest Parade. You can choose to be in one or the other or both. The car display will be from 10am to 4pm, while the parade marshalling begins at noon, with a 1 pm kick off. After the parade, you can come back to the display. If you want to check out the fest, there is absolutely no better parking spot available in downtown Frankfort than in our Car display!
If your car doesn’t idle well for long periods, maybe the static car display is a better choice for you. Either way it’s great exposure for the club and rather like having our own reserved cruise night parking spots with plenty of fall fest spectators. We are limited to about a dozen cars in both events, so please sign up by Emailing me at Larry@vairshop.com.
2021 Camp Quality Update
I recently called Mary Lockton, Executive Director for Camp Quality and asked her what their plans were for 2021 Camp Quality. They are going to do a CAMP IN, a virtual camp, again this year.
It will take place during the dates that they were scheduled to be at Camp Manitoqua. Campers will receive a backpack filled with daily activities and supplies.
Mary would like to do a video at our July 5th Cruise Night in downtown Frankfort featuring some of the cars and drivers to be able to show the kids during their CAMP IN, so they can still have an opportunity to see and enjoy the cars.
Frankfort Car Club members Dennis Heywood (below, left) and John Pathe are pictured with Heywood’s 1920 Packard Twin Six Roadster. The luxury auto is currently undergoing renovation in preparation for its debut at The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The prestigious annual August event in Monterey County, CA is by invitation only. Two hundred of the most prized collector cars from around the globe are judged for historical accuracy, technical merit, and style. The event has raised millions for charity since its founding in 1950. Being invited to participate is an honor in itself. Congratulations Dennis!
It is with a saddened heart to inform you that one of our FCC member, Ted Harvey has passed away.
Wake for Ted is Tuesday, 2 - 8 PM, at Vandenberg Funeral Home in Mokena.
Obituary for Mr. Ted W. Harvey
Ted Walter Harvey, age 78, at rest Wednesday June 9, 2021. Beloved and loving husband of 53 years to Patricia. Loving and dedicated father of Jennifer (Kevin), Jeffrey (Cheryl), and Jill (Tommy); born January 5, 1943, in Harvey, IL as the beloved son of the late George and Charley; dedicated grandfather of Tristan, Isabel, Kaylee, Caden, and Ethan; dear brother of Shelton (Nellie); and great friend to many. Ted served in the U.S. Army where he was stationed in Germany from 1964-1966. As a third generation locomotive engineer, he proudly worked for Union Pacific Railroad for 40 years, where he had the privilege to work alongside his brother and son. Ted’s passion for softball was shown best in the years he coached both of his daughter and as fan watching his daughters coach the next generation. He was an avid hunter, fisherman and animal lover who cherished his time he spent with his dogs. Ted was known as a prankster, who was quick-witted and a professional storyteller. He could befriend anyone; light up a room and was always the life of the party.
