President’s Message

We are on the downside of our year, with only three or four month’s left in driving conditions. I have not yet talked to Don Brenengen and plan to meeting with him on the second week in August. Overall the Car Show came up with a total amount of $521.51.

Don Brenengen and Britton Slowey both attended a meeting prior to the car show. Don talked about the new building for the West Salem Boy’s & Girl’s club. This seems to be an all city movement and they currently have $2.1M. Don would like to hit a goal of $3M.

At our last meeting we voted that the River City Corvette Club would donate $250 towards the “New” - West Salem Boys & Girls Club.

Let’s make sure we have a few more Ride & Dine’s before the snow falls.

New Business:
1) RCC Car Show revenue was down from last year due to less registered cars, less 50/50 Raffle sales and no donation from Big Bore. Therefore RCC donation to The West Salem Boys & Girls Club will be $250 less than last year. Charlie B made a motion to make up the $250 out of RCC general funds. Seconded by Bill C. Motion passed.
