What a month memorable month July turned out to be. Our MS Corvette Classic turned out to be our best show yet. Members did a tremendous job collecting items for the silent auction as well as procuring participants for the Sponsors Award. We had the largest and best show ever that brought in $ 25,500 for our charity. All monetary areas well exceeded those from the last two years. The Diabetes Foundation of MS is definitely the charity we have been looking for to support. They have exceeded all of our expectations and proved to be a true partner and I hope we exceeded all ot their expectations as well. We will be presenting the check to DFM at the September meeting. Hopefully we will have a large turnout at the September meeting as we have something of which to be very proud. Our club finally got the cruise to Lake Tiak O’Khata and the Louisville Fire Museum in on 25 July. Kirby and Janie Wilson did a great job setting this up. We even had two members of the Central Arkansas Corvette Club join us for the cruise. They were here visiting two of our members, Greg and Kathy McDade and joined them for the trip.
We still have the trip planned for the cruise to the Farmer’s Grocery in Grace, MS on 22 August. Joel and Susan Smith will be our Cruise Captains for the event. This is always a great opportunity for a great drive with plenty of food, fun and fellowship.
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.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of the volunteers who have stepped up to the plate to make this show one of the best ever. Many have gone up and beyond the call in making planning meetings, selling Sponsors Choice Awards, soliciting vendors and getting items for the silent auction. Again thanks for a job well done.
Whoever said “Money cannot buy happiness”, never owned a Corvette.”
