Happy Summer to All! Hope you are finding some time
to enjoy the beautiful weather!
There is a great deal going on within our organization
right now. It’s hard to summarize everything but I’ll give it
We are working on coordinating yard tours with some
of our political representatives and auto salvage operations
throughout the state. Look for follow-ups on how things go
in future newsletters. We are hoping that this will open some
doors of understanding with our lawmakers. If you would
like to open your yard up for tours of this type please feel
free to contact myself or any of the board members listed
and we will be happy to assist you.
Again this year Dean Bellin and I were privileged to
represent CARS at the annual ARA Hill Day and Legislative
Summit. Things just wrapped up in Washington D.C. where
we met with our individual state representatives on Capitol
Hill. This year we were speaking with them about gaining
transparency and disclosure from OEM’s in regards to recalled
parts among other things. I am sure we can all agree
that for safety and quality issues this is an important topic.
Look for more details in this newsletter.
On October 3rd and 4th our annual CARS meeting will
be hosted at Chula Vista in Wisconsin Dells. The Convention
Committee is busy planning and it’s sure to be fun for the
whole family. Keep an eye open for something in your mailbox
in the near future. This is your chance to be informed on
all the items we have been working on for you as well as vote
for new board members. We are always looking for new people,
please consider volunteering. read more.
|16th Annual Morrison Open
The 16th Annual Morrison Open was once again a wonderful day! We had fabulous weather
and a great group of golfers! We had 108 golfers for the Reality TV themed outing this year. The
best dressed team was the Amish Mafia team that arrived in horse and buggy that morning. The
golfers and volunteers had a blast at the themed holes this year. We had Toddlers & Tiaras, 19 Kids
and Counting, Deadliest Catch, Americas Got Talent, Top Chef, and American Pickers.
| CARS Members meet with US
The Concerned Auto Recyclers of Wisconsin successfully
spent three days with the ARA, and national representatives
of United States and Canada for the Hill Days Conference.
Meetings were nonstop and much information was shared
back and forth daily. Included in our schedules were meetings
with ARA and their members and staff to discuss any
current updates. We also had meetings with our Senators and
Congressional Representatives, sharing our personal ideas with
our policymakers. read more.
