ACE Meeting Notes

Hello again everyone!

I wanted to update everyone on last nights meeting. There were 20 members present. At first we socialized a bit and ordered pizza then we discussed a couple of topics. Afterwards Kent Morrison showed us how to replace shifter cables (in the dark!).

The topics discussed were:

Tom Rupert Memorial Tour

ACE is bringing back the SMBT under a new name and new time of year. We are planning to hold the new tour about this time next year although an exact date hasn't been set. In case you do not know who Tom Rupert was, he was a founding member of ACE and a very active guy who liked to bike, run & hike. Unfortunately for us, Tom passed away a couple of years ago. He was very involved with the Ashland community and we are wanting to do something to honor Tom. We have a few members that have stepped up to be on a steering committee but if you would like to help out please get hold of me. We'll need lot's of help on this! I will let you know when we are going to hold our first meeting. In the mean time, we are looking for ideas of what we can do to honor Tom with the money raised from the event. Some ideas so far have been, help the Junior Golfers which Tom was active with, help youths somehow with camp or some event at Greenbo State Park and another suggestion was split the money between the 3 main communities that ACE covers - Ashland, Huntington & Portsmouth someway. Please feel free to let me know what your ideas are! 

ACE Christmas Party

We also set the date for our annual Christmas time get together. We will be holding our party once again at the Ashland Train Depot down by the riverfront at 6:00 pm on Monday, December 11, 2017. So mark your calendars now! ACE will provide pulled pork from the Scioto Ribber (Portsmouth). Everyone attending is asked to bring a side dish and a little dessert. Beverages are BYOB. Please either let me know by email or commenting on our Facebook event page for the party on what you are planning to bring so we can kind of coordinate the food. We don't want to have everyone bring green bean casseroles! Although, I love green bean casserole (hint, hint). Here is the link to our event page: . We will also be honoring some ACE members with the Spirit of ACE award. So please think about who you feel represented ACE the best this year and nominate them by emailing me or commenting on the Christmas party event page.

Thank you all for being part of ACE! I'll be in touch again when I have more to share.

ACE President
