<strong>February</strong> Presidents message<br />

It won't be long before it will be perfect weather for a good drive. Looking forward to getting together<br />

with members on some fun runs. Got the fluids up to temperature on a good mountain drive in my '09<br />

recently. Boy, it sure felt good. I drove by Table Mountain Casio on the way. Wow! What an awesome<br />

expansion they are finishing up. It will be interesting to see what restaurant choices they have.<br />

In case I don't see you at the Triangle Inn run or Super Bowl party have a great Valentine's Day. It<br />

originated as a Christian “feast day” honoring martyrs, but has now become a cultural, religious and<br />

commercial celebration of romance. During holidays such as this I always think back to what we did in<br />

grade school during these special days. I can vividly remember exchanging those basic cards made<br />

from stickers with everyone. At one time we even had a mock post office to 'mail' our cards and letters<br />

to other students. It's funny what 'sticks' in our memory about such holidays and events.<br />

Finally, a quick Corvette Racing update:<br />

In 2021, the No 3 Corvette C8.R took the Drivers and Team titles in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class of<br />

IMSA. The No. 4 Corvette C8.R came home in second place in the final point standings. Together, the<br />

two cars helped Chevrolet to its 14th Manufacturers title in GT racing.<br />

But in <strong>2022</strong>, the GTLM class changes to GTD PRO with more cars and manufactures being involved.<br />

Corvette Racing will also compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). Competing in<br />

six races across three continents, the WEC is a World Championship and is important for Corvette,<br />

Chevrolet and the team. One Corvette C8.R will run the full calendar in each series.<br />

Meet Jeff Engelman, CVC President<br />

After graduating from CSUF (Fresno State) in 1980, I<br />

started working for PG&E as an Energy Management<br />

Representative and Engineer. The projects at PG&E<br />

were a perfect fit for my major, Industrial Technology<br />

with an electrical/electronics emphasis. I worked on a<br />

large variety of projects: industrial electrical<br />

inspection, energy management and electrical<br />

under grounding, among others. I received several<br />

awards for the quality of my reports. I also worked for<br />

the City of Fresno as an Environmental Control Officer<br />

until retirement in 2016. I enforced federal and state industrial water<br />

regulations. I really enjoyed both jobs and worked in some way with literally<br />

most commercial and manufacturing businesses in the valley. One of the<br />

most interesting plants was the former Armstrong/Pirelli tire plant in Hanford.<br />

Raw rubber blocks come in one side of the plant and tires ready for your car<br />

exit the other end.<br />

During Christmas 2016 Stephanie and I were admiring the decorations on<br />

Candy Cane Lane. Well, out came Lori Dukes from her house to say, “Hello.”<br />

She noticed my Corvette Owners Association jacket and asked if we were<br />

interested in coming to a CVC meeting. We went to the next meeting,<br />

enjoyed everyone in the group and looked forward to the activities. Our<br />

new member application was signed in May of 2017. I have served on the<br />

Board of Directors as Vice President/Activities Coordinator and now as<br />

President.<br />

Stephanie and I met about thirty years ago through a mutual Friend. We<br />

married one year later. We have lived in our current house ever since with<br />

our latest cuddly cat named Ziggy. Hiking is a favorite activity for us. We<br />

belong to a local gym and work out as often as we can. Stephanie loves<br />

Zumba! The Monterey peninsula and Big Sur area are our favorite 2-3 day<br />

get away destinations. We love the scenic routes, hiking trails and<br />

restaurants in the area.<br />

My first Corvette was a 1978 Pace Car. I still love the C3 design, although by<br />

the mid to late 70's the performance was greatly reduced because of<br />

emissions regulations. I completely rebuilt the entire suspension to make it<br />

handle better and added an overdrive transmission. The car was a blast on<br />

twisty roads! These older cars can't hold a candle to the newer generations,<br />

but if properly updated is lots of fun to drive. Wish I still owned that car. I<br />

currently own a 2009 Victory Red coupe,

Meet Dick Danielsen, CVC Treasurer<br />

I have been a member of <strong>Central</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> <strong>Corvettes</strong> for<br />

approximately 13 years. My wife Ruthie and I joined the<br />

club after Linda Laningham kept telling me I should buy a<br />

Corvette and join the Corvette club she and Chuck<br />

belonged to because the people in the club were really<br />

nice and all the activities were a lot of fun. Well, I bought<br />

a Corvette and we did indeed join the club. Ruthie and I<br />

enjoyed our club membership together for 11 years;<br />

however, sadly, she passed away in June of 2020. Linda<br />

was right, the club is composed of extremely nice folks<br />

and Ruthie really valued and appreciated the friendships she shared with club<br />

members.<br />

As far as my involvement in the club goes, I have served on the Board of Directors<br />

in the positions of Vice President for Public Relations/Membership, Vice President<br />

for Activities, President, and now as Treasurer. Also, prior to it becoming a part of<br />

the Vice President for Public Relations duties, I served on the Membership<br />

Committee. Additionally, I have planned many runs of various types and have<br />

also assisted others with the planning and coordination of their runs.<br />

I am retired from the U.S. National Park Service where I served in progressively<br />

more responsible public safety (law enforcement) positions for 32 years. I spent<br />

the majority of my career at Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA)<br />

where I was ultimately promoted to the position of Chief Park Ranger and was<br />

responsible for planning, coordinating, developing, and executing (through<br />

subordinate staff) all protection ranger operations within GGNRA. This involved<br />

such things as visitor protection (safety), law enforcement, natural and cultural<br />

resource protection, fire prevention/suppression, and emergency medical and<br />

search and rescue operations.<br />

As a collateral duty during my park service career, I served as a Finance Section<br />

Chief for 11 years on California National Incident Management Teams (teams that<br />

are assigned nationally to manage the suppression of very large, complex<br />

wildland fires and the mitigation of natural disasters) and have managed related<br />

fiscal matters costing more than 1 million dollars per day. Also in the position of<br />

Chief Park Ranger, I managed an annual budget of 2 million dollars spread over<br />

multiple accounts. I sincerely hope this qualifies me to hold the position of CVC<br />


Meet Julie Sons, CVC Membership<br />

My husband David and I became part of the<br />

CVC family in November 1995. A dear friend<br />

(Steve Smitha) was the Public Relations<br />

chairperson that year and he encouraged us to<br />

come to a meeting. Many of you knew Steve<br />

and he was such an amazing man but sadly he<br />

passed away of cancer in 2007.<br />

When I met David he owned a white 1984 coupe that he<br />

purchased when they first rolled out the new C4 model. I was<br />

told he was going through a mid-life crisis so I guess you can say<br />

I married into a love for the Vette. We were married in 1986 and<br />

in 1995 I surprised him with a new C5 Aqua Metallic Coupe for<br />

his birthday. After the new C5’s came out we really loved the<br />

look so we sold the ’95 to a friend and purchased a Navy Blue<br />

Metallic 6-speed Convertible. Of course when the new C6’s<br />

came out we repeated the same scenario and we now are on<br />

our fourth Corvette (C6) 2007 Le Mans Blue 6-speed Convertible.<br />

Bonus: If you can correctly guess how many miles we have on<br />

our current Corvette you may win a prize. Hint: She is young at<br />

heart!<br />

Together, David and I have a blended family. HIS: three<br />

daughters (April, Teresa & Penny) MINE: two daughters (Jennifer<br />

& Megan) and OURS: a son (Dave). They are all married now<br />

and we have a total of 9 grandchildren. Our oldest grandson<br />

just turned 21 and I just can’t believe how time has flown. I<br />

retired in April 2020 after a 40-year career at the VA Medical<br />

Center and shortly thereafter we purchased a new RV (2020<br />

Winnebago View). We are having a great time traveling to fun<br />

destinations and also driving to North Carolina where our son<br />

and his family now live. We don’t currently have any pets after<br />

we lost our dog Booch about a year ago.<br />

As always, enjoy the RIDE and save the WAVE.

Meet Keith Garrison, VP Activities & Debbie Garrison, Secretary<br />

Keith and I met at a car show at Fat Jack’s when it was on<br />

Blackstone and our first date was to a Corvette Run to<br />

Madera Speedway in May 1991. Keith brought his 17-yearold<br />

son Butch on the date, and I knew after that date he was<br />

the guy for me. Keith was in <strong>Corvettes</strong> of Fresno at that time<br />

and in October of that year we started <strong>Central</strong> <strong>Valley</strong><br />

<strong>Corvettes</strong> with seven other couples. By January 1992 we had<br />

57 members. We married in May 1992 and had a Corvette<br />

Wedding at the home of Andy and Connie Anderson. The<br />

whole club participated from lining the driveway with all their<br />

beautiful corvettes to serving our 200 plus guests. Keith had a<br />

1958 Grey Corvette Roadster at the time and we still have it.<br />

We bought a 1981 Dark Blue Metallic Coupe with air<br />

conditioning after an extremely hot 2nd President’s Run to Felton that resulted with me<br />

have heat exhaustion. We went on many runs and adventures in that car including to the<br />

Grand Opening of the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY and all over California,<br />

Oregon, Hawaii, Arizona & Nevada. So many runs so much fun with fellow Corvetters.<br />

Keith and I have served on the Board several times and it has always been a great<br />

experience. Being on the Board or leading a run with another couple or other members<br />

brings you a whole other level of friendship that everyone should experience. This Club has<br />

been like family to us, and we have formed great friendships, some just a few years old<br />

some for more than 30 years. We have a Black 1998 Corvette Convertible that we have<br />

had for almost 20 years that car and Keith and I have been through so much together.<br />

We are both retired now, Keith from Sanger Unified High School as District Grounds<br />

Supervisor where he worked for over 25 years. Before that he worked for Kings View<br />

Hospital as an Industrial Therapist working with recovering addiction and metal health<br />

patients. Before that he had his own business as property improvement contractor. I retired<br />

from Algonquin Power, a natural gas power plant where I ran the office for 12 years. Before<br />

that I spent 30 years at various propane companies.<br />

We have two children Kelly & Keith (His) but mine now. Kelly is single and a commercial<br />

property manager and a golf enthusiast. Keith (Butch) is married and is currently working<br />

as a luxury foreign car mechanic. His wife Shannon is doing her residency to become a<br />

doctor at the University of Kentucky at Lexington. They have two boys (Our Greatest Joys)<br />

Corbin 19 and Carson 14.<br />

We have three dogs and a lot of cats; I rescue strays that are dumped and have them<br />

fixed most of them stay. Smart cats.<br />

Our favorite thing is going on corvette runs. We love RVing with our dogs and friends at the<br />

Coast. Our favorite restaurant at the coast is Brad’s; we love their clam chowder and their<br />

fish and chips. Our next RV trip hopefully will be this June when we travel back to Lexington<br />

to see Butch and his family.<br />

Looking forward to many more years enjoying <strong>Central</strong> <strong>Valley</strong> <strong>Corvettes</strong>.

January is already in the achieve dust and it<br />

already appears the days, weeks and months are<br />

ticking down very quickly. I think that might be an<br />

age perception but doesn’t it seem that time is just<br />

flying by? I can’t get over how beautiful our<br />

weather has been and it is proven that people feel more happy and content<br />

when the weather is nice so get outside and do something fun. Don’t forget<br />

your sweetie this month as Valentine’s Day is fast approaching.<br />
