Tim sent a note in telling us that General Motors sales in the U.S. in April were up 11% compared with a year ago. GM's market share is growing, the economy continues to move forward and car and truck launches are getting underway. Chevrolet dealers are receiving 1st. shipments of the all-new 2014 Impala, and new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 & GMC Sierra 1500 crew cabs will begin arriving at dealers during the summer. Cadillac will launch an all new CTS luxury sedan in the fall. All 4 GM brands posted sales increases in 2012.
The American Red Cross Needs Your Support
Many of the people who worked at the former GM Oklahoma plant resided in Moore, OK. The devastating and horrific Tornado that hit there on May 20th causing mass destruction is mind boggling. The Red Cross is always the responders on the scene to help search for survivors as well as provide food, clothing and other necessities to those who have lost everything. As your President, I am asking you to please make a contribution to the American Red Cross to help those fellow ex-GM employees and others impacted by the tornado. Thank you in advance.
GOOD OF THE CLUB:GM-MY TIME- Thanks to Skip for filling in for Melvin Hatcher last month. Today we have Tom Sommerville.
Tom is a Baltimore native. I lived my early years on Pennsylvania & Fulton Ave. After he graduated High School, he worked as an auto mechanic. He did this for approximately 15 years. He made out ok doing this. He was married twice and divorced twice. He has 5 sons and 3 grandsons and one granddaughter. He started working for GM when he was 33 years old. On his 1st. night he hung tires on the truck line all night long. Was never so sore in his life. Tom had a goal in mind when he started working for GM, he wanted to be a supervisor. It wasn't long before he achieved his goal. He was made a permanent supervisor in the Body Shop. He told stories about some of his Body shop experiences.
Next month: Al Tynan
MEETING DATES: June 27,2013
QUOTE OF THE MOTH:
"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."-Albert Einstein.
Bill Brannon said GM donated one million to Texas when they had the explosion. They also donated one million to the Sandy fund. Foreign car companies donated nothing.
