January 10 2023: Presidents Message

A Word from Our President
Happy New Year!
First, I would like to thank Mike McNeely for his hard work as President of the AHCSO over
the past 3 years and for his continued efforts as Chairman of the Flea Market.

Second, I would like to introduce myself for those of you that don’t know me, I love to drive
the Carmen Red Austin Healey 100-4 BN1 that my husband brought home in June 2010 and
I decided to call mine!
I have driven this car from Toronto to Quebec, New Brunswick and Prince Edward
Island; Poconos Mountains and Gettysburg Pennsylvania, Ohio / Kentucky area and Indiana;
and many local drives.
I hope to bring my love of driving my Austin Healey to help the Executive Committee of the
Austin Healey Club of Southern Ontario continue our fun events with our
common interest in these wonderful cars.
I would like to point out that even if you are not on the executive committee, we still welcome
any member of the club to put forward a suggestion of a local event in your community that
you would like us to know about and maybe help arrange a drive to attend.
At our Club Christmas party, the Dave Koch driving award for 2022 went to Tom and
Amanda Yule, who had a wonderful year attending many events within Southern Ontario.
I look forward to seeing everyone soon.
Heather Doust, President
Austin Healey Club of Southern Ontario
