Message from the President

 The month of June started off with a bang with the BBQ cookout at the home of Larry and Shirley Fortenberry. If you missed it you missed a real feast and some great hospitality from the Fortenberry's.  I am not sure I have ever seen that much food in one place and am not sure we even made a dent in it. DonÕt forget the cruise to the Crystal Grille in Greenwood. Not only is this a great ride through the farmlands and small towns but it is a fantastic place to eat. The Shurtleff's recommend ordering the veal cutlets as they have eaten there for years. You have a choice of large or small but I recommend the small as I think the large will feed a family of four.

We still plan to get the trip in to Louisville along with several more that we made last year. Keep the 25th of July open as we will be cruising to the Farmer's Grocery in Grace.

Our new meeting locations still seem to be going well. We have some more on the horizon and will still use a few of our old favorites. We are still working on a number of drives for this year and just have to put dates on them. If you have any ideas for drives or places to meet please let April Owens know so we can check them out. Our annual MS Corvette Classic is only a month away. We need for everyone to go ahead and continue soliciting items for our silent auction. Also we need for everyone to solicit sponsors for our event as well as registering your Corvette for the show. Our planning meetings are Tuesday of each week except the weeks we have a club meeting. We have them at the USPFO Building across the road from the ANG Base where we met last year. Just go to the end of the fence on the left and turn in the driveway. The name is above the front door where you will enter. It is a nice facility with plenty of seating in the conference room. We are soliciting all the help we can get to make this show a huge success. Whoever said "Money cannot buy happiness", never owned a Corvette. Happy Birthday!
