Welcome to the website for the Western Reserve Region of the Cadillac LaSalle Club, which is based in northeast Ohio.
It is with great sadness that we share the news of Al Wedler's passing. Al was such an important part of this Club -- always ready, willing and able to help out in any capacity. And he made it fun! Oh, the stories we can tell about Al "Vinny" Wedler. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Linda and the rest of the family. Details about his service can be found here
The Western Reserve Region is going to have a display at the Piston Power Show at the I-X Center the weekend of March 14 - 16. We would like to have Club members help man that display. If anyone is available, please give Larry a call at 440-845-8554. Admission to the show (for two) and parking will be paid by the Club, so you will be able to enjoy the show, as well as help get information about our Club out to the public -- at no cost to you. Please plan on helping!
The Gathering of the Land Yachts will be held at a new location this year -- at the Nautica Entertainment Complex on the west bank of the Cuyahoga River just outside of downtown. The show will be held on June 22, so be sure and mark your calendars. Click here

We spent a wonderful evening at the Rogalski's, who hosted a Valentine's Dinner for the club. Plenty of delicious food and a great time catching up with friends. Perfect way to spend some time on a cold, wintry February evening! Thank you Judy and Joe for inviting us all to your lovely home! To see some photos from our Valentine's dinner, click here.
Our first event of the new year was a fun day! We chartered a bus -- with a great deal of help from Club member Al Kinney and Great Day Tours -- and took a ride up to Detroit to see the North American International Auto Show. It was a snowy day but luckily we left the driving to a professional and made the trip with no problems. Picked up and dropped off at the door whenever we made a stop; wonderfully comfortable bus; incredible automobiles on display at the show; all ending with a stop at Tony Packo's on the way home. Can't think of a better way to spend a winter day. We'd like to send a big Thank You to Al Kinney -- and to Rick Jablonski, who came up with the great idea!

Our annual Christmas party was well attended, especially considering the weather. Thanks to all who braved the snow showers to make it to the party. To see photos from the party, click here
We held our planning meeting and scheduled our events for 2014. Thanks to all who attended -- a big thank you to Rick for making the arrangements for the meeting, both location and food. To see some photos from this year's planning meeting, click here
Even though rain threatened, it was a lovely -- dry -- fall day, perfect for our annual driving tour! Many thanks to Juli Diederich for organizing the event, as well as taking some great photos! To see all of Juli's handiwork, click here
Our clam bake was a huge success! We had some gorgeous automobiles on display, plenty of delicious food, entertainment by Joey and gang, we saw a win by the Cleveland Browns, and wonderful hospitality by the Jablonski family. Thank you very much, Patti and Rick, for hosting this event again this year. To see photos, and a video, from the clam bake, click here
