HIGHLIGHTS

January 9th, 1989 the first official meeting was attended by 26 persons. A Club was formed, Performance Ford Club of Canada – Eastern Division. Alex Kilpatrick as Director and Paul Forgrave as President. Club Members were unhappy sending the funds to the Ontario Headquarters, they thought the money raised should benefit local charities. They held a meeting on January 15, 1990 and the decision was voted to no longer be affiliated with the Ontario based Club. On February 26, 1990 the Club became "Ford Country Club". The Ford Country Club now has over 40 active members. The Father's Day Car show has survived for over 25 years and has allowed them to donate over $50,000.00 to charities and benefits in their community; some of the organizations they consistently assist are the deaf-Blind-Rubella group, Christmas Daddies, Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake, Friends of both local hospitals, the IWK, Canadian Cancer Society, Muscular Dystrophy, the Shriners, just to mention a few. They have been involved in more than 200 cruise nights, car shows, parades, Radical Speedsport (taking home their fair share of trophies), the Atlantic Nationals Automotive Extravaganza. Over the 27 years there have been eleven Presidents.
