SCVMTFC 50th Anniversary Celebration
April 2019

The sun was shinning and the breeze was warm on the morning of April 6th in Sunnyvale, California. It was the day of the 50th anniversary of the Santa Clara Valley Model T Ford Club. It has been exactly 5 years and 1 day since the 45th anniversary. We had around 70 members attend the party to enjoy the BBQ, music, scrapbooks and entertainment. We had charter members, new members, current members and elusive members show up to join in the festivities. They were all waiting to hear talks about where we came from and how we got here. But first we ate. Everyone was hungry and the food was great. After we ate, we had entertainment Magician, David Martinez, put on a very interesting show and did many tricks that I have never seen before. He was very good and we all enjoyed watching him. Our current president Dan Gulko acted as the master of ceremonies and he introduced Jim Boyden, Peder Jorgensen, and Ed Archer to tell us about the early days of the club. Ed shared a little history fact that our club has the most recipients of the Walter Rosenthal Award. This is the highest honor that the National can bestow upon a member. What a huge accomplishment for our club.

I have to give a great big thank you to the committee members for all their hard work. They are Nikkie Gulko, Audrey Johnson, Helen Christensen, Vicki Wildman, Jean Boyden, and MaryAnn Steele. Thanks to Past President Bill Bratt for donating a delicious cake and Lucy Greenberg for setting up the historian table. I also want to thank everyone else for participating and making this event so successful.

I know I had a great time and I will look forward to the 55th coming up in 5 years and 1 day.

Steve Gulko
