From our President

Fellow CJCC Members,

 

Yesterday's Vettes for Vets Corvette exhibition at Lyons Veteran Hospital was a big success. There were close to 50 Corvettes on display and 42 members attending.

 

We started out at the Dewy Meadows Shopping Center and had a Police escort to the Grounds of the VA Hospital where we were met by residents of the facility. The weather cooperated with plenty of sunshine and warn temperatures. The local 7-11 provided coffee, donuts and fruit for us and the Veterans. Some of our members helped the Veterans get around the parking lot to see the Corvettes and served them coffee. It was a great day enjoyed by all. I was glad to see so many members attend and pay tribute to our Veterans. 

 

I want to thank Jim P. and his wife Sally for organizing the event, along with Brittany P. for making all the flyers that were given to the Veterans and to those who took pictures that can be found on our web site. 

 

A special thanks goes out to the Basking Ridge Police Department for providing an escort and stopping traffic at the intersections so we could cruise together to the VA Hospital. Also thank you to 7-11 for providing refreshments. 

 

Best regards,

 

Rich Bonfanti

President
