    Thanks to our MGB Raffle this Fall, the Club was able to make a $2,000 donation to the Houston Food Bank. Development Director Amy Reagan was glad to receive the check from Ray Holtzapple, Dwight Dawson and Mike Woodward. This donation will provide 6,000 much-needed meals in our part of the World.

    Effective with this post the club has opened up the ability for club members to post comments to articles posted in The ROARS.  We believe that the more interactive we can make the website the better it is for everyone.

    The pages will be monitored and we ask that all comments are made with the same respect, due care and good spirit that defines our club membership.  In appropriate postings will be removed.

    We are very heartbroken to report that long time club member and past president Cole LaMaster has passed away.  We have been told that there will be no public service and no memorials or donations are requested.  The family has asked that there be no visits or calls to Jane.  

     Coleman LaMaster, 91, passed away Saturday, October 17, 2020. He was born on October 14, 1929 in Bloomington, Indiana, the son of the late Clarence and Kathryn Coleman LaMaster. He was a graduate of Indiana University, where he also received an MBA in 1956. He served as a 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. He worked in the propane industry, including as President of Pyrofax Gas Corporation and several executive positions at Texas Eastern Corporation. He enjoyed golfing, restoring and driving MGs and travelling extensively. He is survived by his loving wife Jane Ann Luzadder LaMaster, his son John (Betsy) LaMaster, daughter Kathy (ML Taylor) LaMaster, as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
