STAR'S 17TH ANNUAL TOY DRIVE


DECEMBER 21ST

PACE HEAD START

247 SMITH STREET

NEW BEDFORD, MA

STARTS 8:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.


As the 2016 year comes to a close, it is time to look at our last and most important event of the year, “The STAR Toy Drive”.  STAR has been donating toys to low income/high risk children for the past 17 years.    All year STAR has been collecting toys and donations from members at the events we go to so to service these children and give them a Christmas which most of them would not have if it was not for the generous donations by the STAR members.  With over 300 children involved this year our Toy Drive Chairperson Tammy Barboza has been very busy bagging up toys to make sure every child receives something at Christmas time.

The Toy Drive will be held this year on December 21, starting at 8:00 at the Pace Head Start School at 247 Smith Street, New Bedford, Ma.

STAR will head up a complete day with Santa and all.  We thank STAR member Dennis Lowes for coming down from Haverill, Ma to once more play the role as STAR’s Santa.  It is a day full of giving and STAR would like to send out a very special THANK YOU to all that has helped make this happen.  We cordially invite any STAR member to join us that day.


STAR'S 18th ANNUAL BANQUET
SENIOR TOUR 18TH ANNUAL BANQUET

On November 19th the Senior Tour Auto Racers closed their 2016 racing season with their annual banquet.  This is STAR'S 18th season and it was great to see the members gathering together to close out the season in a fashionable way.  It was great to see members from all over New England and Canada attend to bring the season to a close. 

The banquet was held at Whites of Westport in Westport, Ma.  Over 60 awards were presented to the Star Members for their dedication and true support of this great club.   It has been an outstanding season for the Star Organization with unbelievable car counts every weekend.  Star tours every weekend to the New England tracks to bring "Vintage Racing at its Best". As members sat down to a four coarse meal, they were entertained with a slide show of over 400 candid photos from all the tracks and shows for the 2016 season, photos never seen by the members.  You could hear the laughter and jokes as the members let down their hair to have a great time!


STAR opened up its banquet with the introduction of the Officers and Board of Directors.  It was great to see the present and the future officers in attendance.


Then the Board of Directors presented owner of ProNyne Motorsports Museum, Ric Mariscal with a donation towards the museum.


Now it was time for the awards presentations.
