President’s Message

Joint Ride & Dine with Chippewa Corvette Club. I would like to thank: Bill & LeAnn Conrad for working with the Chippewa Club. I am not sure how many cars were there in total, but there must have been +25 cars. We had a very nice drive and everyone seemed to enjoy the drive. Then we had a very good brunch at Cedar Valley Golf Club. Lastly, we finish the trip to Elmer’s Auto Museum in Fountain City. I also need to thank Bill & LeAnn Conard’s to open your home for the “Potluck” and holding the meeting as Sharon and I were in Florida, helping my daughter and family moving to Japan. Bill & LeAnn: you did double duty and I would like to say “Thank You”. Everything went off perfectly.
