HAPPY FATHERS DAY

JUNE 15 th


F

rom

the outstanding turnout and the

input received from our members, the

Central Valley Corvettes June 1 picnic at

Kroekerville can be classified as an

overwhelming success.

This event was made possible by a variety of

people including the Kroeker’s for opening up

the venue, your CVC board which came up with

the event and you the members who showed up

in strong numbers and participated in the salsa

and dessert contests as well as contesting for

prizes.

We had around 65 people attend which is about

80% of the club, and they were treated to a

delicious taco luncheon with “made from

scratch” tortillas. A four piece mariachi band

entertained us during our meal and the desserts

and homemade salsa and chips rounded out a

fantastic afternoon. Several couples that we

seldom see at our monthly meetings attended

and it is good to see them doing well. Hopefully

they can find the time to visit us occasionally on

the third Tuesday of each month at Yosemite

Falls.

At this point, the picnic was a one shot deal.

But with the positive comments, perhaps an

annual event such as this should be considered.

Complimented by our annual Christmas party,

which is largely subsidized by your annual dues,

a midyear picnic would give as a major social

event every six months. Perhaps at our June

17th meeting we can have a discussion and vote

and create a club picnic as a perpetual event.

The second annual Hansen President’s Mystery

Run is coming up at the end of September. We

had two couples sign up at the picnic bringing

the total to 28 people, or 14 cars. If you are still

considering going with us, time is becoming

critical. I blocked several hotel rooms, but

those extra rooms will have to be released the

day following our June 17th meeting. That

means if you decide later that you want to go,

there is no guarantee that our host hotels will

have any available rooms.

In case you missed it, the Mystery Run will be

from Monday September 29 to Friday, October

3. The cost is $1,100 per couple and the first

installment of $550 is due now, with the

remaining $550 payable at the August 20th club

meeting.

CRAIG

An important element to the picnic was the fact

it was entirely supported by club dues. With our

newsletter now electronic, the savings in postage

this year enabled us to pull this off with a budget

of $1,500.

It is hearing the lusty cry of your newborn baby,

and the sharing and caring for the small fragile life

that you made. It is working each day to provide

for your own, and going to do zoo when you would

rather be at home. Being a father is helping each

child face the world and challenges of today, and

showing them the wisdom of choosing to go the

right way. It is standing tall and stern when your

child has broken the rules, and lifting them up

when they have learned from life’s hardest school.

It is letting go of your children when they go their

own ways, and having the knowledge to know that

they will be forever changed after doing so. It is

giving away your little girl to another man and

having to trust someone else to take over the

protective and provider role that once belonged

only to you. A fathers job is not an easy one, ask

any father and he will tell you so, but a good father

will also tell you that no matter what he had to

endure, the end justified the means and was always

worth the sacrifice.

children the richest inheritance."
