un for president. 6) CVC has reversed a trend

of declining membership by increasing its size

by 10% over the last two years. 7) Same goes

for the number of “runs” which had dropped to

an average of two to three per month and are

now back up at three to four per month.

As I complete my second year as your president

and write my final monthly message, I would like

to thank those members that served on the

board this year including Skip Severance, Fred

Parks, Kim Fosnaugh and my wife Pam.

Additional thanks go out to Charlie Fosnaugh for

handling Membership, Leigh Ann Severance for

taking the raffle tickets, Jan DeMello-Pfelpsen on

Sunshine News and Lupe Dawson for being

Sargent at Arms. Congratulations are also in

order for your 2015 CVC board as Gary Pflepsen

will be your new President, Skip Severance moves

from VP of Public Relations to VP of Activities,

Dick Danielsen will be the new VP of Public

Relations, Debby Anderson is your new Secretary

and Mike Ledba will control the checkbook and

handle the duties of Treasurer.

Central Valley Corvettes has recently benefitted

from a series of positive developments. 1) The

club saved a few thousand dollars a year by

converting to an electronic newsletter. 2) Those

savings have led to a club sponsored spring picnic

which was been well received. 3) Our meetings

were moved up thirty minutes to 6:30pm to

accommodate our out of town members. 4) For

the first time in several years, Central Valley

Corvettes obtained a major sponsor. As a result,

our club’s financial security is the best it has ever

been. 5) Through your votes you provided the

flexibility for more people to become eligible to

One difficult challenge being president is to

come up with a “Mystery Run” that hasn’t been

done before. Twenty years of three or four day

weekends in and around California can severely

limit the options. Hopefully you enjoyed last

year’s run where for the first time we chartered

a motor coach and visited a part of the state

CVC had not been to. Even this year’s run was

different as it was a five-day, four- night

midweek adventure which was a first. I would

encourage future presidents to consider

expanded “Mystery Runs” which can allow you

a better opportunity to discover something

fresh and exciting.

In closing, I would hope our members

appreciated the effort of an efficiently run

meeting. Getting down to business was a

priority with a goal of completing the agenda in

35 to 45 minutes. Including the raffle, the

target has to have things wrapped up in roughly

an hour. Being the president these past two

years was sort of like Ed Sullivan introducing

and transitioning from one act to another. And

if there was a hotly debated topic at hand, I felt

it was important to keep the momentum of the

meeting moving and not let things drag on.

Thank you for your support. It has been an

enjoyable two years. I hope you show the same

support for our new incoming president, Gary

Pflepsen and the rest of the 2015 CVC Board.
