From the Driver’s Seat – Oct2017
OCTOBER 2017 – When this goes to print there will be only 61 days left in a year that has been flying by so fast. October was filled with our usual functions, but each one gets better than the last. With our business meetings averaging 85+ people attending, and our Taste of the Town averaging 40+ people dining, we are truly an active club. The Board of Directors, and the Committee people work tirelessly to provide something for every member, and by the turnouts, their doing it right. The Don and Connie Ceo end of summer celebration hosted at their home was fantastic, with over half of the membership attending, and our run to Vincent Hill Station, and the Aqua Dulce Winery was a tremendous success.
Over the past five years, our club has made many subtle changes to improve the club’s operation. We’ve made an impact in our community because of our charitable contributions, and with the upcoming 40th Anniversary starting after the first of the year, additional changes are on the horizon, ushering in an updated generation of the club. With the electronic age now an everyday part of our life, and essential to everything we do, our club is moving forward to stay abreast of technology, and ease of club operation, to better serve not only the membership, but those seeking involvement with the Santa Clarita Valley Corvette Club.
The Board you elected thinks out of the box when it comes to car club operations, and if there’s a better way of doing something we try it. Had it not been for our Newsletter Editor, Mike Woodings innovative idea of bringing our newsletter into the 21st century, we would still be in a relative “Stone Age” publication. People really look forward to reading the newsletter every month. Deana Shaver has taken her Quartermaster position to new heights. She provides the members with high quality items, at a very fair price. Because of Deana’s dedication, we are the sharpest looking club on the road. Those are just two examples of Board members moving the club into a new generation of the SCVCC.
November and December are historically hectic months for everyone, and our club activities take that into consideration, so planning events is a challenge. Our annual Christmas Party is December 9th, so plan ahead and have those grocery bags filled for your donation to the Pantry. We’ve filled the truck every year, so let’s keep the tradition going.
