New faces for classic car body
THE Jamaica Classic Car Club (JCCC) elected its youngest executive body since its inception at its annual general meeting at Curphey Place, St Andrew, on Sunday.
Shane Angus, 32, is president for the 23-year-old body.
"I'm elated to win as I've been a part of the club for many years. I think this is a step to incorporate a younger demographic, both males and females, into the club," Angus told Auto.
Augus's team comprises Jason Lawson, first-vice president, and Naresh Potopsingh, second vice-president, both under 40.
The executives are no strangers to the club's management as they all were past executive members.
"I'm looking forward to an exciting year," said Potopsingh.
According to Angus, he will be embarking on more fund-raising events as well as expanding the club's membership. An event is also planned for Hope Pastures in St Andrew on January 12.
"We're also participating in and selling tickets for February's Orchid Show in St Mary," said Angus.
Outgoing president Nigel McFarlane felt the outcome of the AGM was transformational.
"I've had three good years, leaving a legacy to be built on, and I am very pleased to see the younger members step up. I see good things ahead from this," said McFarlane.
