President’s Report November 2020

As we progress towards the end of 2020 I will state the obvious in regards to the year that was. It has been a very different year for us as a car club with some testing times. We have survived! We look forward to 2021!
Rather than talk about 2020 I would like to focus on some different aspects of life and how Murray Bridge has progressed.
On a personal note 2020 marks 50 years since my father and I conducted a funeral at Coober Pedy. I have copied details from an article that was published in the Advertiser newspaper telling the story.
I have put together some photos of 2 service stations in Murray Bridge – 1950’s and now.
I have also copied some cars for sale adverts from November 2002 which indicate the values of some very collectable cars at the time. The value of these vehicles has escalated dramatically in the past few years.
If anyone else has any photos or history that could be shared amongst our club members please contact our Editor, Yvonne.
