A Merry Missy Christmas
- 30 Mokes and around 65 people present but Missy and Rhonda were probably the 'best dressed'.
- Santa did the right thing by the kids - small and big
- ...and there was ice-cream for supper. Yummy!
The presentation of this magnificent tool caddy and Sidchrome tools, total value $1500, and an honorary membership of the MOAV for a year, is another example of our commitment to the article in our constitution requiring the club to be of some good in the community. Andy Preston has led us into this new adventure and the feedback from staff at the August 22nd presentation suggests that Box Hill would be very happy to continue the relationship next year.
It's Wednesday June 7th at the regular Club meeting.
Glenn got here early and took pride of place right outside the club room door.
What better way to show of his baby - and be first to dig into the snags?
19 months before Glenn and Sweet Pea were in an accident. Glenn survived. Sweet Pea didn't. It was written off. So sad.
Glenn took the body, wrapped it in cloths and placed it in a tomb ... Oops sorry, wrong resurrection.
But Glenn really did take the body and has worked with his mates all that time to rebuild, recreate and improve his loved one.
Now there is plenty of new light in the Moking world.
Our June meeting saw the drawing of the raffle for the project Moke that had been so successfully marketed since Tracel started discussions with the committee some months ago. Tracel began by retelling the back story of the Moke and how Robin's sudden passing led to this moment. We were blessed with a peek into two loving lives.
Peter had set up a computer with a neat random draw program and Tracel clicked the mouse three times to find the three winning numbers. And here they are. Watch along the top of the screen to see the prizes drawn.
The lucky winners were:
- First prize: 1975 Yellow project Moke ... Ticket 368 purchased by Mr D Butterworth
- Second prize: $150 dollar voucher from Minis Plus ... Ticket 111 purchased by Mr R Harper
- Third prize: $50 dollar gift card at SCA ... Ticket 218 purchased by Mr M Phillips
All proceeds to the Heart Foundation in memory of Robin. But that's not the end of the support for the foundation that will come from Robin's shed. Watch Tracks for further news.

Box Hill TAFE organised a 33km fundraising walk for local charities from the Box HIll Campus to the Lilydale Campus. They asked for Mokes as support vehicles. Club members responded because ... well helping out in the community is what we do. The certificate is a thank you for our effort. And look at how much was raised on the day. Wow!
