Carl Patrick Award

The "Carl Patrick Award" which is named after Carl Patrick, who was a member of the Club in the 1970s and '80s. During his time with the Club, Carl set the standard for helping fellow club members in need and, as reported in the 50th Anniversary edition of the Script (November 2013), Carl's philosophy became the guiding principles for bestowing this award to other members, including that an awardee should:

1 - Believe in the restoration and preservation of the Model A Ford "as Henry built it"
2 - Be willing to share their knowledge of the Model A with fellow members
3 - Give unselfishly of their time to help others restore and preserve the Model A Ford
4 - Help promote the friendship and fellowship we all enjoy because of the Model A Ford.

Howard Minners - Long Time Board Member Retires

During the last official GWC Board Meeting of 2016, Jim Gray recognized Howard Minners, outgoing board member for his long service on the GWC Board, and his service to the entire Model A Community. Stan Johnson reviewed Howard's service to the National Model A organizations, including Howard's long Presidency of the Model A Ford Foundation; his efforts to assemble and organize valuable collections of original Model A upholstery samples, factory photographs and era advertisements for the Model A Ford; as well as supervising the indexing of Factory Engineering Drawings at the Benson Ford Research Center in Dearborn. For this and other work, Howard was presented several years ago with the Ken Brady Award, the top award of the Model A Restorer's Club. Early on in Howard's service to the GW Chapter he served as Newsletter Editor, winning the top MARC award, and more recently has been the liaison between the National Model A Ford Organizations and the George Washington Model A Ford Club. His service on the board will be missed even though he plans to continue full participation in club activities. A hearty and sincere round of applause followed to show Howard our admiration and appreciation.
