I was sent a link to the Thornhill Cruisers’ (Thonrhill,Ontario) web site where I found this announcement:
“Thornhill, Ontario, October 11, 2012
The executive council of the Thornhill Cruisers Car Club Inc. are sorry to inform our participants, guests and members, that effective October 11, 2012, after 19 seasons, the operations of the club and the cruise night have been declared cancelled for the 2013 season and beyond. The mitigating factor has been the inability to reach an agreement with our landlords, the Bayview Glen Church, after six successful years of operation at that location. We wish to thank all those who as volunteers, participants, advertisers, sponsors and spectators, made the Monday night cruise the successful event that it was. The assets of the club will be liquidated , the proceeds from same, as well as the remaining operating capital, will be donated to selected charities to be determined in a reasonable period of time. The results of these disbursements will be published on our website before it goes dark.
Remember, for 19 years: It was worth the drive to Thornhill
The Thornhill Cruisers Car Club Inc.
Executive Vice President”
This is sad news indeed. I would like to thank the Thornhill Cruisers for 19 great years. While we haven’t been able to be as active there as we once where, we (Judy & I) enjoyed many great Monday nights at the Thornhill cruise night over the course of those 19 years, met many great people and forged personal relationships that we maintain to this day.
Like a lot of groups and individuals in our hobby, they did great work at funding charitable causes/projects.
Despite their claim that it never rained on Monday nights (it did occasionally), it WAS worth the drive to Thornhill. Thanks for your efforts and for the memories.
