…a word from our President!

It is great to see new members coming into

the club and I hope that continues

throughout the years. We need to

remember that our club was created to

have fun and enjoy each other’s company.

Please be sure to include our new members

when you are at events and make them feel

welcome.

We are about to conclude the first month of

the new year with some new events on the

horizon and some members who have

never put on runs hoping to put on a run

this year. Remember that the entire club is

ready to help anyone who needs help

planning and putting on a run. About runs, I

am working something for a mystery run

that would be late April. I am having a hard

time getting some information and

scheduling events but if it comes together, I

will present it at the February meeting. In

the event this doesn’t come together the

mystery run will probably happen after

Labor Day. Have a great time and go 49rs.

Michael Lebda, President


General

Meeting

Minutes

1-21-20

The January General meeting was called to order by

Mike Lebda at 6:30 PM. Mike opened the meeting

by having the minutes read.

Secretary – Kathy Marine – Minutes from the

December General Meeting were read. Skip made a

motion to accept the minutes as read; Fred

seconded the motion.

Treasurer’s Report - Lynn Henenfent gave the

Treasurer’s report. She confirmed that the club’s

State and Federal Tax status paperwork has been

filed/completed. Lynn also stated $270.00 was

collect in raffle ticket sales. Freida can’t help but out

do herself each and every time selling raffle tickets.

Fantastic!

VP of Public Relations/Membership – Leighanne

Severance announced 8 birthdays and 4 wedding

anniversaries for January. Birthdays were loudly sung

to and applauded whether celebrants were present

or not. Competition between anniversary couples

was short lived compared to any of their years

married. By luck of a quick draw, Charlie and Kim

Fosnaugh had an extra reason to celebrate being the

winners of the $25.00 Yosemite Falls Café gift card.

Leighanne stated the club grew a bit larger. Wayne

and Araceli DeCamp, and, Randy and Cori Ray were

unanimously voted in as new members.

Congratulations and welcome!

VP of Activities – Jeff Engleman informed the

members of upcoming runs and activities. Each run

leader gave a brief synopsis of either their future

planned run or described the highlights and

memorable moments of their recently held run.

See Run/Activity Schedule published in the

newsletter for planned runs or contact run leaders

with any questions regarding their run.

Parliamentarian: Mike asked Dick Danielsen for his

input or comments. Dick had no comments at this

time.

Old Business: Mike queried the room for old

business.

Freida and Lorraine volunteered to organize the

Kroekerville Picnic, scheduled for May 2, 2020.

Freida and Linda volunteered again to organize the

CVC Holiday Party scheduled for December

More details on both the picnic and holiday party

will be provided.

New Business: Mike queried the room for new

business.

Mike informed members that Charlie is researching

a program that will streamline some of the Club’s

processes and “bring the Club into the future” (as

Charlotte described). The program should make

newsletter publication easier; provide a portal for

members to update their membership, pay for

runs, events, dues, pay by credit card; track money

flow; post meeting minutes, and the like, at an

approximate cost of $50.00/month. Mike

suggested social media may be another means in

generating Club interest or updating members of

happenings and events.


Skip reminded members that CVC has a Facebook

page that is not being used. As Administrator of

CVC’s Facebook page, he can “welcome” members

should they wish to “join” and post pictures and

information. Skip noted that the Facebook page

should not take away from the importance of CVC’s

Newsletter which should be the main source of club

information.

Lori Dukes invited the club to Dave’s 64th birthday

celebration she will be hosting at their home on April

10 at 5:30 pm. She has reserved a taco truck for the

occasion and hope all will come and help celebrate

Dave’s birthday.

Sunshine and Clouds: Linda Laningham - With the

start of a new year came new information as

members shared mostly sunshine news than clouds.

Sergeant-of-Arms: Chuck Laningham “two-buck

Chuck” tried-and-tried but could not charge anyone

with a fine. All members were proud and wore their

club badge.

Next General Meeting: To be held at Yosemite Falls

Café, Tuesday, February 18, 2020, at 6:30 PM.

Next Board Meeting: To be held at Lebda home,

Monday, January 27, 2020, at noon, bring a bag

lunch. Members are welcome to attend Board

meetings. Please inform Club President of your

attendance.

General Meeting Adjourned: Charlotte made a

motion to adjourn meeting at 7:24 PM. Fred

seconded the motion.

Respectfully submitted:

Kathy Marine, Club Secretary

San Luis National Wildlife Refuge Run

On Thursday, February 6 th at 08:30 am we will leave from the McDonalds at Herndon and 99

and head to the San Luis National Wildlife Refuge visitor center 15 minutes outside of town in

Los Banos. The road is paved all the way to the Refuge with plenty of parking.

Upon arriving at the visitor center, we will attend a presentation by the Park Ranger. There will

also be time to take in the visitor center exhibits. The Park Ranger will have a van to take us

on the 5 mile Tule Elk wildlife loop. We should be able to see some of the 50 Elk on the

Refuge. The van can hold about 8 to 10 people. The park ranger may also drive some in a

separate car. We can also drive our cars on the wildlife loop if we wish, but I don't recommend

driving our Corvettes on the wildlife loop. The wildlife loop is compressed aggregate, but can

be muddy in places after rain. There is no charge for the Wildlife Refuge activities.

Then we will head back to Los Banos for lunch at Espanas. Hope you can join us!

Contact Jeff for more information. I will send out an e-mail reminder for those that signed up

at the January meeting.
