National Chrysler Products Club (NCPC) Independence Region
The Independence Region was founded during 2002 by members who wanted to build upon the motto “Fun, Friends, Family” and create a more frequent opportunity to share our common interest in Mopars. While most of our members live in Bucks and Montgomery counties, the region covers the seven-county area around Philadelphia.
Fall 2019 Independence Region Update
The days since the 2019 National Meet at Hotel Rock Lititz and Das Awkscht Fescht in Macungie, PA, where Chrysler Products were featured, have slipped by quickly! On Saturday, September 14th, members and friends of the Independence Region gathered at the Country Fair held at Central Schwenkfelder Church, Lansdale, PA for our annual end-of-summer picnic. This year, Warren Barcalow, Anne Christian, Linda & Alan Eickhoff, Janice & Roy Harmon, Tom Price, Mike Riebe (New Jersey Shore Region), and Bob & Rosemary Snyder brought their cars to the show.
With roughly 160 vehicles present and marques ranging from Auburn to Volkswagen, there was plenty of variety on the show field. The Country Fair also features activities for kids, a public auction of household items, musical entertainment, plenty of food vendors, plus floral and bake sales. Most importantly, it provided a great venue for us to relax for a while and spend time together.
On a sad note, the Independence Region mourns the loss of our longtime member and dear friend Mary Bock, who passed away on October 6th.
Mary and her husband Alan could always be seen hard at work to ensure the success of the popular All Mopar Shows, which were held jointly by NCPCIR and the Plymouth Owners Club, at the former I.M. Jarrett & Sons Dodge dealership in Hatboro, PA. Mary was a kind, friendly and courageous woman who will be missed by all who knew her.
Now that the colder weather has arrived, we’re looking forward to our final Independence Region activity for 2019 and have reserved our place in the annual Hatboro Holiday Parade.
The Independence Region meets at 7 PM on the 4th Monday of each month at Giuseppe’s Pizza and Family Restaurant, 1380 W. Street Road, Warminster, PA 18974. New members are always welcome!
