President’s Report December 2014

Jason Miller – KY Region President

The Holidays are here.  Commercial America seems to celebrate earlier and earlier each year.  But, let’s not lose the meaning…Family, Friends, Love, Togetherness, Sharing, etc.  In the hurry-up world of today we often don’t allow ourselves to slow down and just be thankful.  I for one, can truly say I am a blessed individual, surrounded by love and friendship.

I count my KYPCA friends as an extension of my family, and I am grateful for the relationships the club has allowed me to build.  As your President, I am often the first point of contact.  I receive phone calls and e-mails on a daily basis from club members and non-club members alike.  Most inquiries pertain to club events, trying to connect with a certain member, private-party car inspections, or hunting down a long lost vehicle.  However, in mid-October I received an e-mail I will never forget.

The e-mail was from Tracy (last name omitted for privacy) with the first paragraph reading: “Hi, I have a strange request.  I am trying to locate a place where I can rent a Porsche for the weekend.  My husband loves Porsche and has always dreamed of driving one.”

This was not a strange request.  I too, like many of you, shared that dream at one point in my life.  And, every time I get behind the wheel of a Porsche the excitement is still there.  But, the e-mail went on to read:

“Leo is 45 years old and was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in May of 2012.  He has had surgery and has been receiving Chemotherapy treatments since July 2012.   He had a CT scan on October 3rd and we rec’d the results of that scan Monday of this week, and we were told that the cancer is still growing, even while on treatment and this was his last option for effectiveness.   His Oncologist and him have talked and decided to stop any further treatments and try to live the rest of his days the best that he can.  We have no time table of when the Cancer can take him from this earth.  I asked him if he had a “bucket list” of any sort and he said no not really, and that he would just love to get in a Porsche and drive it.  I am asking you if you and the Porsche Club would in any way be able to help me make this a dream come true for him.  He is an amazing husband, father, and friend.”

Upon receiving this e-mail, I shared it with a few club members.  Matt Innes immediately jumped at the opportunity to help, offering hot laps as a passenger in his 944 Turbo during the 10/10ths event on October 25th and 26th at Putnam Park Road Course.

Leo and Tracy made it to the track on the 26th.  Not only did Leo get hot laps in Matt’s 944, he drove it during the Noon Touring time and had rides in many other cars as well.  Both Tracy and Leo shared that it was wonderful experience.

I personally could not be prouder that when called upon the club came through in such a big way.  As I have always said, it’s not just about the cars, it’s the people driving them.  Well done Matt!  We all have so much to be thankful for, be sure you slow down and take it all in.

Our December meeting will be Monday, December 8 at Mellow Mushroom.  The meeting starts at 7pm, but many arrive as early as 6:30.

Mark your calendars and don’t forget to RSVP for the After Holiday Party Saturday, January 17, 2015.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

Jason Miller
