I thought this should be posted, so more folks would know about it. At least the goobs in Washington did something, for a change!

The Great American Hobby

> The U.S. Senate unanimously passed Senate Resolution 513
> designating Friday, July 9, 2010, as Collector Car Appreciation
> Day. This effort was undertaken by your SEMA Action Network (SAN)
> friends in Washington, D.C., as a means to raise awareness of the
> vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in
> American society. Collector Car Appreciation Day will also
> provide an opportunity for enthusiasts, like you, to gather at
> events nationwide to celebrate this special day and raise
> awareness of the importance of our great American hobby.
> The resolution, sponsored by Senators Jon Tester and Richard
> Burr "encourages the people of the United States to engage in
> events and commemorations of Collector Car Appreciation Day that
> create opportunities for collector car owners to educate young
> people on the importance of preserving the cultural heritage of
> the United States, including through the collection and
> restoration of collector cars."
> Across the country, events are being planned to recognize this
> important day for collectors and enthusiasts. Car cruises, club
> gatherings and other fun events will take place to recognize the
> importance of preserving the heritage of the United States by
> encouraging the restoration and exhibition of collector cars. The
> success of the resolution is only as strong as your participation
> in events on July 9, and we are asking (not that we have to!) all
> members of the SAN to get involved and make the first Collector
> Car Appreciation Day one for the history books.
> Here are some ways you can get involved to make July 9 a special
> day:
> ·        If you own a collector car, drive it to work and show
> your coworkers!
> ·        If you are a member of a car club, host an event or
> move an upcoming gathering to July 9 from its original date.
> ·        If you are a member of another hobbyist organization,
> think about partnering with clubs in your area to attract more
> participants and make a big splash on the first Collector Car
> Appreciation Day.
> ·        Don't forget to invite your friends, neighbors, and
> even your local elected officials to events in your area to get
> them involved in the hobby.
> If you or your car club are planning to recognize the occasion
> or would like information on setting up a Collector Car
> Appreciation Day event, please contact SAN Director Ethan
> Landesman at ethanl@ sema.org as soon as possible. We will then
> add your event to the master list available at www.semasan.com
> and publicize your event to the national enthusiast community.
> Celebrate With Us at These Appreciation Day Events!
