November 15th Newsletter

  Hi Everyone,

I would like to start out today by wishing a very Happy Veteran's Day (late I know) to all the retired and active duty men and women of our military who have so proudly served our great country and fought to preserve our freedoms, and to extend our very deepest appreciations to you all.

I would also like to remind you all that we here at THE SPEED SHOP are participating in our 2nd Annual Marine Corps Toys For Tots toy drive and are honored to be an offical drop off location. I would ask you all to please take a moment during your holiday shopping and pick up an toy or sports equipment for a needy child. We will be collecting these items now through December 15th, just look for the giant Christmas present at our customer counter, and be a part of spreading smiles and joy. The next couple of weeks are a little quiet for car shows because of the Thanksgiving holiday, but let's see what we've got going on.
