Almost all of us touch this at least once a week, and until a few weeks ago, we never gave it a second thought — the gas pump handle. Wear gloves or use hand sanitizer afterwards.

Traveling to the SCCA National Convention a few weeks ago and enjoying some pleasant temperatures really got me excited for the new season — except I had to return to cold gray Chicago. At least we have a few exciting indoor things to do this month.
Happy New Year! It’s a new year, a new decade and a new Regional Executive.
It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve as your Regional Executive. If you were not aware, the Chicago Region Board has term limits and my time is up. You are the best members of a region that has thrived for over 70 years and I am proud to say that I have been a part of it.
