President’s Message

Unfortunately since we live in the Midwest, Corvette season is winding down. We do have a few more club events before winter sets in. On Sunday October 12th, we are going to Botham Vineyards near Barneveld for our last ride n’ dine of the year. Our next event is a Hixon house tour on October 25th at 1:00 pm. My wife Mary will be giving the tour, feel free to bring guests to this event. In November we have the annual Holiday party at Progreba on November 22nd. The Rotary Lights parade will be on November 28th.

Our next club meeting will be October 26th at Schmidty’s. We will vote on club officers at the meeting. The only change is Chuck Zimmer being nominated for the Treasurer position. All other board members are continuations. Please either pay your yearly dues at this meeting or have them mailed in by October 26th if you cannot attend.
