Minuteman Section History

Welcome to the Minuteman Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America.

 

The Minuteman Section has its roots dating back to 1966 when founding father Warren Roos gathered up a small group of Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. The Section was formed and active until 1967, with a few of its original members continuing to participate in national events as members-at-large.

 

The Minuteman Section was revitalized in 1973, when then National President, Phil Parrino and Regional Vice President, Hans Lipfert, asked one of the remaining original Section members, Ike Kilayko to host a meeting at his home. Ike was appointed President, Alex Dearborn as Vice President, Dan Eigenbrode as Treasurer and Doris Kilayko as Secretary. Ike, Doris and Alex remain members of the club to this day.

 

The Minuteman Section has remained active, running section events and participating in national programs since that time. Premier events sponsored annually by the Club are Farberallye and Germanfest.

We hope you will join in the fun and become a MBCA member today.
