ABRAHAM CHEVROLET welcomes back into the fold Frank Eller in the used car department.
So many people in the trade remember Glorida Seidman that we would like to keep you current. Gloria moved to California in July of last year after ten years at MADA where she was one of Farny's right hand girls. In one short year, she has become comptroller for her current employer, FRANK SAUNDERS OLDSMOBILE in Los Angeles.
There is so much being said about woman's LIB these days and it looks as though DEEL FORD has done something about it. Sherry Smith and Sami Smith have joined the new car sales staff as sales personnel.
Living in Miami and enjoying all this glorious sunshine we sometimes forget all of the other wonderful sports that are offered in colder climates. Linda Morgan, WILLIAMSON CADILLAC has come up with a marvelous suggestion. She is a member of the Miami Snow Ski Club and invites anyone interested to contact her. A meeting of the club was held at the Sonesta Beach Hotel at Key Biscayne with speakers Dick Anderson of the Miami Dolphins and Steve Knowlton of the Colorado Ski Country. The purpose of the club is to get people together who are interested in snow skiing and plan trips to the cold areas. Anyone who thinks snow skiing is their "thing" can call Linda at WILLIAMSON.
Chris Coler, COURTESY FORD, is walking around these days with a cast up to her knees. Why she will not reveal to is exactly how it happened only adds more mystery to the injury.
Everyone at HOUSTON MOTORS had delicious pineapple upside-down cake last week. Julie Hollinger got up at 5:30 to bake it fresh to celebrate the birthday of Ernie Nelson, used car manager.
And speaking about HOUSTON, Jeannine Bond is still finding it difficult to adjust when her husband leaves on tour of duty. This time it is to Fort Lee, Virginia, where he will qualify for his new rating as Warrant Officer II. We know Jeannine will carry on, as she has in the past when Viet Nam called. She is kept quite busy raising three children and doing a great job as title clerk.
Congratulations are in order for Joe Messina of CRIPPEN OLDSMOBILE, used car manager, and his lovely bride, Elaine, of WILLIAM LEHMAN BUICK.
Three cheers for Mrs. Anthony Abraham, ANTHONY ABRAHAM CHEVROLET, for her untiring help in aiding Dr. Ben Sheppard's methadone clinic. Mrs. Abraham has made a name for herself in helping over the years these so needed causes.
DON ALLEN CHEVROLET must feel they have made some small contribution to the Palmetto Senior High School's government classes these days. Stan Brunner is now interning at Palmetto and after his January graduation from the University of Miami, he will be teaching full time at that school. As a salesman for DON ALLEN for the last four years, Stan has earned the money to put himself through the University.
NOLAN BROWN MOTORS has selected a new fleet manager. And as usual they have brought one of "their own" up through the ranks. Glenn Hommel, this column thinks, will be a great asset in that department. Once those new Cadillacs start rolling again we are sure Glenn will do a most capable job at his new position.
This column wishes to express the most sincere and heartfelt sympathy to the family of O.C. "Farny" Farnsworth. Mrs. Farnsworth and Betsy have lost a devoted husband and father. All in the trade have lost a most kind and considerate friend. And MADA has lost not only their beloved "Boss," but a man who was like a father to all of his "girls."
