What we're about

Carlisle MINI Motoring Club was formed in Carlisle Pennsylvania by Santiago Gabela and his wife Lois over a decade ago. Their first attempt to set up the club and develop an active membership was a slow process. Over the years our little (MINI) club has grown. We now have more than 250 members. One imperative is a love of MINIs. What is a Carlisle MINI Motoring Club member? Whatever YOU want it to be! Our passion for our MINIs is the singular common ground that we all share, aside from that we are all individuals with many other varied interests. We are a loose knit bunch of MINIacs and that's the way we like it! Join us at one of our events...some large...some small, but all with a focus on MINIs and having fun. Now MOTOR ON!

Diner Day at the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles

This is a joint run with the LANCO MG Club. We will be leaving from the Columbia PA Burger King (Rts 30 and 441) around 9:30 AM for an approximately one-hour drive to Boyertown. Or, you can meet at the Museum around 10:30 AM. Diner Day is one of the Museum’s most popular events. With the price of regular admission [Adults $10; Seniors (60+) or AAA $9)], guests are able to sit inside the beautifully preserved Fegely's Reading Diner and enjoy coffee and homemade pie. Coffee and pie are available for purchase at 1938 prices--that means a nickel for a cup of coffee and a quarter for a slice of pie! Can’t beat those prices! The Museum address is 85 S Walnut St · Boyertown, PA. The Museum website is http://boyertownmuseum.org/
