As part of our back-to-back Corvette weekend, thirty-seven of us met up Sunday morning at Route 66 to gather around the breakfast table in preparation for the KHTS Home and Garden Show. As always, George Thomas and his crew did a great job accommodating us, and if anyone went away hungry, then it was pretty much their own fault.
With our plates empty, and our bellies full, we lined up for the twenty-seven car caravan across the valley to Central Park, where the show promoters had an adjoining parking lot reserved for our Corvettes to be on display. The staff was great and as we were directed into the lot, the impressive line of Vettes immediately began to draw the attention of onlookers, as it did throughout the day.
Armed with lawn chairs and coolers, we spent the afternoon relaxing at the park and roaming through the large variety of community booths and vendors that were on display, including those from the Emergency Expo and the Arts and Crafts Fair.
While there, we ran into Carl and Jeri Goldman (pictured with Dave Caldwell), KHTS Station Owners and our sponsors for the event. We thanked them for the outstanding accommodations and planning. Carl expressed interest in making it a tradition annually. Thanks Carl and Jeri!
For those that wanted a little something to nosh on, we enjoyed more food and treats from the wide array of food trucks that were in attendance.
We also scored big when we found a booth that was giving away ice cream bars, chocolate drumsticks to be exact…further proof that it was a perfect afternoon.i9
