President's Message - September 2022

Hello Everybody,

Our annual AMOA Corn Roast will be on September 17 and hosted by Peter & Michelle Sitzler, hopefully you will attend this fun event and meet some old friends and new ones.


Freedom Ford was quite happy with the Cars & Coffee show and are interested in doing it again next year. We will need to decide on the type of show (Cars & Coffee or regular Car Show) as well as the Charity that we will donate to by the November meeting.


The IMM43 is now over and next up is IMM44 which will be held in Anaconda, Montana USA. Please check out their website Immford.com – for more information and registration. I have heard that they are limiting the number of registrations for this event, so if you plan on going, please go to their website and register and book your hotel as soon as possible.


Former club member Marcy Lamanes passed away on September 1, 2022 from a long battle with cancer. She was a AMOA member from March 2017 to March 2019. Her husband Rick previously passed away also due to a battle with cancer.

President's Message - August 2022

Hello Everybody,

Our AMOA / Freedom Ford Cars & Coffee on Saturday July 16, 2022 was from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Freedom Ford (7505-75 Street). The event was open all makes of vehicle’s, trucks and motorcycles. We had about 50 vehicle’s attend the event. We held a Silent Auction with proceeds going to the Mental Health Foundation and raised $1720.00 during the day. At our monthly meeting Peter donated $280.00 to bring the total to $2000.00


We had a motion brought forward that the AMOA to donate an additional $2000.00 to the Mental Health Foundation, which would be a total of $4000.00 from the AMOA / Freedom Ford Cars & Coffee All Makes event. We had a discussion and the motion passed. Darryl, Chris and Craig went to the Mental Health Foundation office on July 27, 2022 for a cheque presentation and pictures.


On August 6, 2022 great weather and blue skies were the order for the day as eight cars and ten members gathered for the 2022 edition of Rockin' August. We first gathered at Ricky's for breakfast and then rolled into the park and set up as best we could as the park was nearly plumb full shortly after nine. The lawn chairs came out under the trees and we all started to peruse over the many, many hundreds of cars and trucks. Overall, it was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday and we heard near the end of the show that just over a thousand vehicles had attended.


Our monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of every month, at Freedom Ford, 7505 -75 Street, Edmonton, Alberta. We will use the second floor meeting room above the Showroom. The meetings start at 7:00 pm.
