Fall is upon us and along with that comes

election season at CVC. This year four of

the five board positions are open because

of the incumbents being termed out.

Charlotte Renna has one year of eligibility

left as Vice President/Public Relations and

has agreed to run for another year. That

leaves openings for President, Vice

President/Activities, Secretary and

Treasurer. These jobs do require some

time and effort but they are a great way to

give something back to a club that gives us

such fun, companionship and driving

adventures. Here’s a look at the open

positions and what they entail.

The President is the CEO and chairman of

the board and presides over the general,

special and board meetings. Other tasks

include writing this monthly letter for the

Newsletter and putting on the annual

President’s Mystery Run. I can truthfully

say that, with the exception of the grind of

writing this monthly missive, serving as

President has been a fun and rewarding

time.

The Vice President/Activities is the Run

King. He coordinates the calendar of all

the club events and works with the

sponsors as required to put on first class

runs.

The Secretary records the minutes of the

membership and board meetings. This also

requires that the membership meeting

minutes be provided in order to be

published in the monthly newsletter.

The Treasurer is in charge of and

responsible for all the funds of the

organization. He provides a written

monthly financial report, receives and gives

receipts for money due, deposits money

and writes checks.

If anybody is interested in one of these

positions you can get more information in

the club by-laws which are on the club

website.

Two years ago I very reluctantly accepted

the nomination for President and was

surprisingly elected. I had experience in

management positions in the military and

industry but this was my first opportunity to

be involved with a social organization. I can

truthfully say that leading CVC has been one

of highlights of my life (along with marrying

Jan and her Corvette). It’s been wonderful

to get to know so many of the members

more closely and share club experiences

with them. Putting on the annual

President’s Mystery Run is a real hoot. It’s a

challenge, but taking members to new

places and driving roads they haven’t been

on is worth it.

So if you like to work with people and would

like to give something back to the club that

gives us so much,

PUT YOUR HAT IN THE RING!

See you all at the next meeting.


Parliamentarian Craig Hansen reported that

elections are coming up soon.

Sgt. at Arms Chuck Laningham collected $1.50 in

missing badge fines.

Sunshine and Clouds report was given very

cheerfully as always by Jan Pflepsen.

Charlotte reported that the plans for the

Anniversary party are almost complete. The

committee took a trip to the party location and

all were very pleased and think it’s going to be a

great venue.

The General Meeting was called to order at

6:30 by President Gary Pflepsen.

The minutes from the July meeting were read

by Debby Anderson, Secretary. Tom Piercy

made a notion to accept the minutes as read

and it was seconded by Dale Comer. Motion

carried.

Treasurer’s report was given by Mike Lebda.

Our bank account is looking good. We can

make a nice Charitable Donation this year.

VP of PR/Membership Charlotte Renna gave

the Birthday and Anniversary report. We

installed new members Steve & Lydia Garcia.

A motion was loudly made by Keith Garrison to

raise the missing badge fines from .25 to .50. It

was seconded and voted on by the club. Motion

carried to raise the badge fines to .50

We discussed making a charitable donation. We

decided $1,000 would be a good amount. Fred

made a motion to accept the $1,000 donation

amount and Lee seconded it. Motion carried.

Skip went over the procedures for how the club

makes donations so that the new members

would know and his suggestion was for the

Chaffee Zoo. We will be taking suggestions at

next month’s meeting and then we will vote.

The next General meeting will be Tuesday,

September 20, 2016.

The next Board meeting will be Tuesday, August

23rd 6:00 pm at Debby Anderson’s.

A motion to adjourn the meeting was made by

From Jill Kroeker

Just got off the phone with dad’s surgeon. The good news is

his lymph nodes are clear so he’s considered stage one and

both he and Dr. Gen (heart Dr.) think he is a candidate for

surgery. It’ll be done at the Fresno Heart Hospital. Don’t have

a date yet. Praise God.

From Tom Piercy

We are at Roger Rocka's celebrating my son David getting into

Central Valley Corvettes turns 25!

Come Celebrate on October 22, 2016

Interesting how the months slip right on by. When we started

planning for our 25th Anniversary Party, there were months ahead

of us to plan, acknowledge people, write articles for our newsletter

& brag about our wonderful club. Here we are in August and

except for the planning of the party, I have accomplished none of

the other. So thankful for our committee, Keith, Debbie, Patrick,

Patricia, Andy, Connie, & Bob for putting together our party. The

date is still Oct. 22, 2016, at the residence of Col. Larry Linder .

Next month everything will be finalized & all information passed

on to membership. There will be a $10 cost to members (no guest

for this one, unless they are completing requirements for

membership). Please mark your calendars for this special event,

you won't want to miss it. Charllotte
