Porsche Club of America - Milwaukee Region


November 2009 Steinlifters Online

Halloween is past but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to show the Porsche-identified broom that Mary "The Wicked Witch" Richter used as transportation to a Halloween celebration recently. Mary reports that she arrived at the destination ahead of all of the other goblins, thanks to the extra boost that comes with Porsche engineering.

In this issue, find biographies and information on how to cast your vote to elect four members to serve a two-year term on the board of directors.

Also, check out event reports for the Oct. 17 drive to breakfast and the standing-room-only tech session on Oct. 31.

Read a fitting tribute to Bob Schoessow, one of the region's founding members, who passed away last month.
