2021 has flown by. Just 12 months ago, Bunnin Chevrolet Fillmore offered their showroom for our club monthly meeting site. Only 19.8 miles on CA 126 from the I-5 interchange seemed workable after seven months getting together on the Zoom screen. More virus concern brought our in-person meetings to a halt again in December and you all know the rest of the story. The point is, our club is great, keeping up with the uncertainty and not losing hope that we would get together again.
The 2020 lockdowns made our Christmas party a no-go this time last year with the prohibitions on gathering. Our club dues were less for those who renewed their memberships but December 2020 without a club party was not the same. Thankfully, our activities team stayed abreast of the mandates and have Christmas Party 2021 on our calendar. Many have signed up for this year’s event at Knollwood Country Club coming up on December 4. I am hoping for a wonderful evening out with all who can make it.
November found us continuing to enjoy the hospitality of Santa Clarita Lanes for our monthly meeting and many of us rolled again to Fillmore for their community Veterans Day events. We caravanned to the Veterans Day Parade on November 11 and returned On November 13 for the Veterans Car Show. It was great to see Mark and Cheryl Hooper take home the Corvette 1st Place trophy for their awesome C8.
Taste of the Town at Maria Bonita’s also had a great turn-out. If you have been hanging around at home, you should join us at our events and times together. We miss you and it’s a night to skip doing the dishes.
We are starting December with not only our Christmas Party on December 4, but also a run earlier in the day to Bunnin Chevrolet Santa Paula to join Red Line Corvettes and Ventura County Corvette Club for the Toys for Tots event there. Then just one week later, we will again spend our Saturday on December 11 accepting donations for the Santa Clarita Food Pantry at Sam’s Club. It is an enjoyable way for us as a club to make a contribution to the community. I urge you to join us helping others.
For those who have not yet signed up for the Monterey Coast Corvette Cruise, the event appears to still have openings. Check their site at www.montereycorvettes.com. Our club has many who have already signed up, but the event has a cap. Don’t delay if you are interested.
Check the Three Months at a Glance for what is coming up in the near future. Join us at an event, a social gathering or maybe just a cruise for ice cream. Get those Corvettes our on the road. They are made to be driven.
I, along with all of the board wish you and yours the best for a joyful holiday season…and Save the Wave!
