A classic convertible corvette, Model As and other vintage vehicles convened at Westview Health Care Center on Saturday, September 15, 2018 as the Yankee Yesteryear Car Club visited the residents and patients of the facility. Musical guest, Joanne Dumas, serenaded the crowd with Doo-wop and the music of the “good old days” in Westview’s courtyard for the attendees.
In remembrance of late co-founders, Mary and Arthur Chmura, the group partook in a event considered “The Ice Cream Tour” (originated by late Westview resident, Mary Chmura) where members of the club and visitors savored a cold and sweet treat provided by Westview’s Recreation Department while enjoying the camaraderie of others and the classic hot rods and cruisers that adorned the parking lot.
With the mission to promote the overall interest in automobiles including history, design, construction, preservation and restoration of period vehicles, the Yankee Yesteryear Car Club, founded in 1963, partakes in numerous car cruises, parades and events throughout the year.
“We wish to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the Yankee Yesteryear Car Club for sharing their time and love of vintage cars with us,” stated David T. Panteleakos. “Seeing these vehicles restored to their original beauty provides a sense of visceral nostalgia that speaks volumes to those residents of ours who remember them from their youth."
