Members of Acadia Region came together over the summer to celebrate a milestone in the club’s history. 2013 marks 35 years for the club, whose charter was issued in October of 1978.
Acadia, which is part of PCA Zone 1, includes New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador. Back in the day, it also included the state of Maine. There were just a handful of members at the time and the nearest dealer was some 800 miles away, but their goal was to bring together people with a common interest: Porsche. Many a friendship has been made though the years, along with cars bought and sold, and today, Acadia Region is still going strong.
“We’re an active club and hold a variety of member-focused events throughout the year including tours, driver education, technical sessions, concours, social events such as Porsches on the Lawn, a popular summer activity where members gather regularly to chat and enjoy their cars,” says club president Graham Young. “Our base is Halifax, but members come from across Atlantic Canada. We’ve experienced double-digit growth in recent years, which is quite exciting for a small club like ours.”
