From our President
December 19, 2017
Dear Fellow CJCC Members,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support this year and I wish you and your families a very Happy Holiday Season and a Wonderful New Year. Serving as your President, Vice President and Acting President during these past four years has been very rewarding. Time has passed so quickly! It is hard to believe that 2018 is less than two weeks away.
As you know, 2017 was a very special year for CJCC celebrating our 20th Anniversary. In recognition of this 20 year milestone, three weekend get-a-ways were planned including Wildwood, Lake George and Newport, RI. A great time was had by all who attended these special events. In addition, over 40 other events and cruises were scheduled throughout the year providing many options to enjoy our Corvettes along with spending some quality time with fellow members.
This year our Club also celebrated another milestone with membership reaching an all-time high of 89 members. Club membership and participation has grown tremendously over these past several years.
The Club’s charitable commitment to Tomorrow’s Children’s Fund continued to shine with $5,000 donated this year and over $30,000 in total donations since 2005. The Club continued their support to TCF by donating food to their pantry during Thanksgiving and providing toys during the Holiday Season. On behalf of TCF, I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your generosity. It is so wonderful to see the giving nature of our Club, especially during this time of the year.
The CJCC concluded the year with our traditional Holiday Party at the Bridgewater Manor. Everyone who attended left with a Door Prize and of course those who participated in the Cut-Throat-Grab Bag enjoyed a great evening of give and take. I received numerous comments from those who attended on what a great time they had and how nice of a job the Bridgewater Manor did to facilitate our club’s party.
Yes, 2017 has been a special year for our club. As we move into the New Year, I ask you all to put your support behind our new officers, President Rich Bonfanti, V.P. Bruce Cenicola, Treasurer Ray Marino and Secretary Pam Long. I know they will do a great job and continue to build upon the success of these past 20 years. Best wishes to all.
