     - On Thursday, July 18, Snapper's Brass & Gas will be stopping in the area where they will display 22 different cars.
    Snapper’s Brass & Gas is a brass car touring region of the Antique Auto Club of America uninhibited by geographic boundaries. The club was founded Aug. 19, 1993 in the Snappers Saloon on the banks of the Ohio River in Ripley, Ohio. Club activities are restricted to cars manufactured before 1916.
    The club will be in the lower level parking lot of the Wayne County Visitors Center in Honesdale. They plan to arrive by 1 p.m. and leave around 3 p.m. About 52 members of the club will be around and they'll be walking Main Street and having lunch.
    We're very excited about it,” said Donna LaBar, Executive Director of the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce. “It's a great opportunity that they are coming to Honesdale and passing through our area. It's a chance for the public to see some vehicles they may never see again. This is a very unique club.”
    Snapper's Brass & Grass tours around different areas each year. They are “dedicated to the restoration, preservation and enjoyment of Brass Era Automobiles.” The club's activities emphasize the “enjoyment of old tyme automobile touring away from the hustle and bustle of our modern lives in some of the most beautiful parts of the United States and Canada.”
    The club presents four events annually to include the: Spring Tour, frequently a progressive tour of significant distance; Summer Tour, a family oriented hub tour providing fun and frolic for all ages; Frosty Tour, a 3 to 5 day late fall tour and an Annual Business Meeting held in late winter or early spring in a large city somewhere. We also cosponsor the Lansing to Dearborn Run in September.
    Membership is approximately 262 families in 33 states, Canada and New Zealand. Annual dues are $10, Contact Mike Danzig at mdanzig@windstream.net for information about joining.
