Literally a permanent reminder of the fact that we visited Milwaukee in 2013. The monument dedication took place on August 18th, just two days before the meet began, allowing the Friday tour participants to see it for themselves.

In case you didn't see it... look at the 4th last name on the list of donors plaque.

Patrick made a donation in the name of... not his name, not the chapters name... but on behalf of the entire Professional Car Society !!!

That way it will be there forever on that marker and will be a remembrance that the first WI PCS meet was held in 2013.

WAY TO GO on behalf of Patrick for that, just one of many, incredible things he did that made his PCS meet extra special.

The PCS name on that plaque is awesome. Christie told me about it (she went on the tour while stayed at the hotel), I misunderstood her, I thought it was a sign the cemetery had welcoming us like the hotels do, not forever carved in stone (so to speak).
Thank you Patrick for immortalizing this great organization!!!!

Joe McDonald's '64 Eureka; photographed at the Milwaukee Classic, and then on my way back to Oklahoma.

Thanks again to Larri Dirks for pulling these cars out for me in Sterling!

As you all know, one of the main reasons the PCS was founded in the first place back in 1976 was to foster an interest in and acceptance of vintage funeral vehicles and ambulances within the wider old car hobby through a staunch advocacy of authentically-restored and preserved cars that properly honor the rich, altrustic history of the funeral and EMS professions. Our participation in the 2013 Milwaukee Masterpiece Concours was, by any measure, an important milestone in our fulfillment of this almost 40-year-old ambition, judging by how our participation was richly rewarded with FOUR awards over the weekend ...

In addition to Alliance, Ohio funeral director Daniel Skivolocke winning Best-of-Show on "Club Saturday" with his thoroughly magnificent, newly-restored 1959 Sayers & Scovill Cadillac 3-way loading Victoria landau hearse, the main, invitation-only portion of the Concours on Sunday, August 25th saw William C. Peoples' 1927 Henney "Landau Back" Hearse/Ambulance Combination Coach from Marietta, Ohio awarded First Place in Class 1800 Professional Vehicles. The Milwaukee Fire Museum's 1947 S&S Cadillac ambulance received an Award of Excellence in Class 1800 as well , while Stacy, Minnesota PCS member Larry Dunn - whose Minneapolis livery service hosted a memorable "drive-through" open house during the 1996 PCS International Meet - also received First Place in Class 2500 (Classic Style: American Closed) for his stately 1933 Cadillac V12 Series 370C Seven Passenger Sedan.
