HURONIA WIRE WHEEL CHAPTER HISTORY
In the Fall of 1998, the Model A Owners of Canada had two Chapters, the Southern Ontario Chapter and the newly formed Trillium Chapter. A group of Model A owners around the Tottenham area said “Why not us?”
On Wednesday, November 4th, 37 Model A Owners met in the Tottenham United Church to determine if a new Chapter was possible. A positive response led us to apply for Chapter status with not yet a name for the proposed Chapter. Several names were proposed and votes were solicited by ballot. A write-in suggestion of Huronia Wire Wheel Chapter was selected. It told where we are and who we are. An executive was chosen for the coming year. President Jim Campbell; Vice President, Carol Johnston; Treasurer, Susan Leybourne; Secretary, Josie Campbell and Membership Wes Leybourne.
It is with great sadness that Jim Campbell passed away on August 19, 2019 in his 89th year. He remained a very active participant in the Club until the end and his legacy lives on.
