Back in May I took the Saturn into my garage in Tavistock as the A/C wasn't working very well. The garage did a temporary fix. To fix it properly, I need $1,700 worth of repair if they can find the part. Unfortunately, the part was not available in Ontario and had to come from the United States which would make the repair much more expensive. I have found that parts for the Saturn are hard to find for a 20 year old car.

Over the last couple of years, I have been researching for a new car. Now with the bill to fix the A/C the decision was made.

I have always liked the Honda Civic Sedan. So off to Woodstock I went to see what they had or I could get. Stratford Honda didn't seem very interested in helping me get a new car. Woodstock Honda had 4 on order to arrive at their location early August.  On May 21st, I signed the paperwork for a Honda Civic Sedan EX. The price and interest rate were guaranteed. I then just needed to wait. Some people who know me, know that I'm not always very patient.

I went to Rock Glen for the Canadian July long weekend and on the drive my A/C totally quit. With having wind up windows, I needed to make a stop to open a couple of windows to try and stay cool. Not very successful. I was out of the park by 9 am to get back home before the it got really hot.

Finally on Friday, August 19th, I was able to pick up the Honda. What a joy it was to have A/C. I will have a huge learning curve as there are so many features that I didn't have in the Saturn.

After getting the Honda, I went home and packed up the car to go to Rock Glen for the weekend. I was told that George was going to presented with an award and they wanted me to be there to accept it. 

Rock Glen had their 50th Anniversary celebration on Saturday. There were a lot of awards given to people as appreciation to what they do for the park and to various members. Kristy presented me with the Best News award as George was always promoting the park. She also said that he was famous for his tie dye shirts.

They also had certificates for the loyal campers. The certificates were given out for every 10 year duration, starting with 1972. We joined Rock Glen in 2006. We always enjoyed our stay and the membership.

It was a great weekend. A lot of people were involved with this special occasion for Rock Glen. Thanks to all of you who put this celebration together.

The Honda is a pleasure to drive. I had no issues to or from Rock Glen. Now I start the process of learning more about the features that I have. I have even started looking through the manual.

Thanking everyone in advance for your comments.
