President's Message 2017

With Spring at our doorstep, many of us are looking forward to getting our Summer rides back on the road and with that, the many activities we enjoy throughout the year. I look forward to showing off my own “one-of-a-kind” 2009 S60 at this year’s Family Day, something I have neglected to do in recent years! With only 70k on the odometer and sold new to me by my good friend Gary Sodoski at Volvo Metro West, this S60 boasts every option available at time of sale including larger rims and full OEM body kit!

At time of writing, our newsletter editor Michael Lim has returned from the 2017 Canadian International Auto Show and I look forward to his report in this issue. Michael was able to secure a media pass and enjoy an exclusive look at the Volvo Cars of Canada display among others.

With little to report at this time, I can tell you that your Executive will be meeting next month to discuss all things business including our annual Family Day and the General Meeting that follow later in the year. We are also working with some of our younger members to hopefully introduce some new initiatives that will be of interest to members and anyone else wanting to experience the Volvo brand. Stay tuned for our summer issue of the newsletter for announcements!

Lastly, I just want to make mention that sponsors will be contacted in the Spring to both confirm participation and solicit donations for prizes as we prepare for our biggest event every year, our annual Family Day, being held this year on Sunday, July 23rd. I will be personally contacting the Toronto area dealerships including an early notification to Volvo Cars of Canada, providing more lead time as they configure their 2017 calendar.

I invite you to visit www.canadianvolvoclub.org for all the latest in Volvo events including CVC business, as we do our best to keep the site current and up-to-date.
