Touring the Green Mountain State Since 1986!

Green Mountain Region
Virtual Holiday Cocktail Party and

Saturday, December 5 at 6:00 p.m.

Opening Entertainment with Vermont's Jon Gailmor

Your Green Mountain Porsche Club Board is planning some fun holiday events and we hope you will participate!

Given the restrictions due to the Covid pandemic, we will not be having our annual (in-person) holiday dinner as in previous years.

But---we have decided instead to host a virtual cocktail party on December 5 at 6:00 p.m. using the Zoom meeting platform. Members who RSVP with their intent to join our virtual party will be sent a Zoom link to the meeting. 

The meeting will start with a brief “virtual concert” presented by Jon Gailmor!
Many of you may know Jon. He’s a Vermont singer / songwriter, an “artist in residence” for Vermont schools, and an entertainer who has played many venues in our state: clubs, weddings, concerts, and more. Jon will open up our party soon after the party starts by singing a few “car themed” songs. Learn more about Jon by visiting his website:  You can also look up Jon in Facebook or on YouTube and hear him perform some of his songs.

We ask members to consider sharing their favorite cocktail recipe, beer or wine. We intend to assemble the submissions and share this information with the other party goers. As we plan the meeting, we’ll find a way for attendees to vote on their favorite recipe / wine / beer selection, and the club will offer an award for the best cocktail / wine selection! Stay tuned in for more details.
Please RSVP to if you plan to attend the virtual party. And while it's not mandatory for joining the party, don’t forget to include your favorite cocktail recipe, beer or wine selection when you RSVP.

GMR-PCA Fundraiser

Your GMR-PCA club is holding a fundraiser to benefit the Vermont Foodbank with the club matching the total member donations up to $2,000. You may not be aware that foodbanks are able to purchase more food per dollar than the average consumer making this a great way to help fellow Vermonters who may need support during these challenging times, and for the holidays. We have established a fundraising goal of $1,500, so please help to provide food to Vermonters facing hunger by making a donation to the Vermont Foodbank through this link ( The process is fast, easy and secure. 

Raffle for Fundraiser Contributors!! 

Your donation will be recognized as part of the GMR-PCA fundraising drive. Additionally, every club member donating to the Foodbank fundraiser will be eligible to win a prize of $50! It just so happens that the national PCA is raffling a new Porsche 911 Targa and each ticket is also $50. So, the winner of our raffle will have the choice to use the funds to buy a national PCA raffle ticket or something else! Donations must be submitted to the Vermont Foodbank by December 3rd to be entered in the raffle.

Mark your calendars!

So, mark your calendars for some holiday fun on Saturday, December 5th at 6.00 p.m .and send your RSVP to The Zoom logon information will be sent to you via email a day or two before December 5. And remember to share your favorite cocktail beverage and maybe a nice digital photo of your Porsche in your email.

See you then!

Member Highlight: John and Sue Fallone

In this newsletter we are featuring a highlight of a Green Mountain member. We urge you to send us information about you and your car(s), along with a photo or two of course, that we can profile here.

John and Sue Fallone have recently moved to Woodstock, and sent us photos of their not one, not two, but three Porsches. With their permission here is text from the email they sent to our membership chair, Brad Kennison, when they joined GMR:
My wife Sue and I are avid Porsche enthusiasts and have recently moved back to the Northeast from South Carolina where we were members of the Coastal Empire region. Having moved to Woodstock, we wanted to transfer our membership to the Green Mountain Region.
We currently own three Porsches. I have a 2005 911S, my wife has a 2013 Boxster, and we share a 2017 Macon GTS. Prior to this We‘ve owned a string of other Porsches including a 914 going way back, a 928 and several 911s. I raced SCCA for about 10 years and have an interest in doing some PCA track days to scratch that itch.
