From the Driver’s Seat – April 2023
April was quite a month in many respects. It is always tax month, but this year our benevolent government gave us until the 18th to settle up. It was pretty rainy in these parts giving us green hills with poppies all around. Castaic Lake is even full to the brim. Drought isn’t mentioned on the evening news while virus restrictions were reported to be history.
April was even once again a month for near insurrection at our monthly club meeting, reminiscent of our April 2019 meeting at Embassy Suites meeting. When the vote was called this past month to finalize the naming of our car show charity, the vote had to be postponed to May to allow for additional charities to be considered. Hearty discussion is good, and the delay did us no harm and after our decision is reached we can move forward with our planning for the September 30 All-Corvette Car Show at Route 66 Classic Grill.
The show planning committee has been formed and we can begin to advertise the event. The car show requires much more than the committee and a plan, it will require help and support from our entire membership. In the coming month I ask all of you to put forth maximum effort to make the show a success.
This month, ballots will go out to all regular members for electing your board for 2023 – 2024. Completed ballots need to be returned NLT May 31, 2023.
Membership renewal is also beginning. I ask you all to re-up for club year 2023 – 2024 well before June 30 to avoid getting a reminder from your president. Dues are raised this year to $100 for regular members and $25 for associate members. As always, new application forms are required along with your dues to assure your information is complete and up to date.
Our meeting attendance remain excellent. Turnout at the Santa Anita run, and the Home and Garden events was excellent as well. I know many are looking forward to the Las Vegas run and all of our coming events. Check your Three-Months for what is on the calendar and even more important, read your email for additions and changes to the event schedule.
An important by-laws change vote will take place at our May general meeting to assure we continue to comply with state and federal requirements. Be there and vote.
With Spring arriving, be sure to get out in your Corvettes. Enjoy your good fortune in having the Corvette experience. With that, tell Patty Kemple, “well done”, for yet another first place trophy on April 30 at the Glendale Adventist Academy car show.
Looking forward to what May hold. Save the Wave.
