It is July 2021. The SD Prowlers are doing well. We continued to meet throughout the Kung Flu pandemic outdoors in El Monte Park (Lakeside, CA.)
The venue seems to suit us well. We have entertained going back to the restaurant who always welcomed us to use their banquet room but have opted to stay in the park. Attesting to So Cal reputation for nice weather, we have not missed a meeting and at least half the members drive their hot rods.
Heading into 2022 and contemplating our 75th anniversary, we are being encouraged by our contemporaries to host another picnic.
We have reserved El Monte Park, Section 4 on June 4th, 2022.
We will keep you posted here. Until then, Keep the Shiney Side Up!

June 4 Prowler 75th Anniversary
Sept 19, 2015 we helped Prowler Charter member Ace Carnahan and Ella celebrate their wedding anniversary. It was a special day...we managed to find old Prowlers (I'd never met) Nick Nichols and Dave Schaefer. It was a very nice celebration with perfect weather and wonderful catered mexican feast!

Nancy Simonides constructed these two quilts made from MOST of the club's Old Timer Picnic t-shirts. There are 40 shirts from over the years donated by past and present members. The project took 3 years from planning to finish. The quilts were displayed for the first time at the 2012 picnic at the club's t-shirt booth. They truly are amazing!!
