Ankokas News...






Kyle hangs out with Dennis Gage
Ankokas member Kyle Blake had the chance to hang out with Dennis Gage, host of the TV show My Classic Car, at the 2019 Rhinebeck Car Show and swap meet in Rhinebeck, NY on May 5th. Kyle was showing his 1967 Plymouth Barracuda when Dennis came over to admire Kyle's car. The two spent some time talking about the car, and from the picture, it looks like they were having a few good laughs too. Kyle says Dennis didn't film his car for an upcoming episode of the TV show, but he did get to watch the crew film a 'gorgeous 1941 Studebaker Commander'. And yes, the mustache is real.

Ankokas 2019 Charter Luncheon


On March 24, 2019, Ankokas held its 55th Annual Charter Luncheon at the Merchantville Country Club. The luncheon celebrates the anniversary of the founding of Ankokas and brings together all members for a good time of conversation and food. President Joe Dougherty announced several club events coming up in the next few months, so be sure to check the Calendar often. A Thank You plaque was presented to club member and sponsor Tom Amendola for his support of Ankokas. The highlight of the day was the presentation of the Frank Hankins Memorial award, presented to the club member who has stood out for their work and support of Ankokas. This year, Kathy Petters was honored for her work as our first woman as Region President for the past two years, organizing our car show registration, and years of support for all of our club events. To see pictures from the luncheon, click over to the Past Ankokas Events photo gallery page.

Pictures and audio of our pipe organ tour now posted


Pictures of our tour of the Atlantic City Convention Hall Pipe Organ have now been posted Atlantic City Pipe Organ Tour of the Past Ankokas Events gallery. An audio clip recorded from the free concert after our tour is now posted on our BLOG page. If you missed the tour, you missed a spectacular tour. Every Wednesday at 10:00 am, Boardwalk Hall offers a tour of the building and inside the chambers where the pipes are located. You are actually walking through the organ, not just looking at it. After the tour is a concert that shows just how grand the pipe organ can sound. And it's all free. Yes, FREE, no charge. You really need to take the kids and grand kids to see this. Don't delay.
