The Committee of 300 held our Christmas Party at the Long Beach Yacht Club on December 30. Members and their guests enjoyed an excellent buffet dinner of chicken, salmon and roast beef along with all of the trimmings. After dinner, President Derek Brown delivered a few remarks and thanked and introduced the Board Members. Grand Prix Association of Long Beach President and CEO Jim Michaelian also delivered some remarks and thanked the Committee. Then Derek and company handed out a couple of tables’ worth of raffle prizes. Larry Bustmante and his band provided the music for dancing and listening. This was a first-class event befitting our first-class dinner attire. See how much fun we had in the gallery below.

Lions Automobilia Foundation – Museum Self-Guided Tour – The experience begins as visitors walk in thru a 1960’s speed shop with genuine parts hanging off the walls and then enter the Main Street Gallery lined with classics automobiles parked in front of a 1950’s diner. The visitor experience has been described as mind-blowing, as each gallery reveals the human experience with the automobile. Lions is more than just a museum. The Lions Automobilia Foundation takes persevering automotive history to the next level with its onsite restoration facility. As visitors walk through the galleries, they will find that many of the vehicles on display were restored by the Lions Team.

A few Redcoats managed to locate each other among the 100+ entries for the Belmont Shore Christmas parade. We accompanied an Acura Grand Prix pace car up and down 2nd Street in front of 40,000 spectators lining both sides of the street AND the median. Afterward, we located our cars and gathered at The Belmont Brewing Company for hospitality.
