President's Corner
Summer Winding Down

Where does the time go? I say that all the time, you probably do, too. We're into August now, Back-to-School sales have started, the Sales Tax Holiday has come and gone. Why can't the purchase of a new Volvo be considered a "school expense", thereby avoiding sales tax during this annual buying frenzy? After all, our Volvos are used to schlep kids to and from school or may even be driven by students themselves in the pursuit of their chosen field of study. Sounds like a school expense to me! Maybe we need to get some lobbying working in our favor down in Jeff City! A guy can dream.....

As we roll into Fall, we have some events coming up which should be very interesting.  The annual Mid-Missouri Meet-Up is fast-approaching on Saturday, September 9. This year we will meet the Volvo Club of Kansas City in Jefferson City at the old State Penitentiary for a tour of this infamous place, followed by lunch at the Canterbury Hill Winery.  The weekend of October 20-22 is the National Meet, held just down I-44 in Tulsa, OK. We're also working on a special Club preview of the new 2018 XC60 at West County Volvo so stay tuned for that announcement!

Keep rolling,
Greg Kraner, President
