From our President

January 9, 2019


Fellow CJCC Members,


The beginning of a new year is always exciting regardless of how that is tempered by the winter weather we experience here in New Jersey. As I look through the activity list that Mike has already put together for the upcoming year it warms me a bit to know that in a short period of time we will have our cars on the road again winding through the beautiful New Jersey country side.


 A big part of our club is the dedication to raising money for Tomorrows Children’s Fund.  With the Houlihan’s Dine to Donate fund raiser and the Rich Shanahan’s Memorial Car Show TCF Fund raiser, CJCC Members were able to raise $5,650.00 for TCF. My hope is to grow that donation again this year with the addition of some additional fund raisers. Details on that will follow.


This year already has some great events scheduled including Vettes for Vets Event  at the Lyons Hospital, The First Wednesday Night Cruises,  America on Wheels, Cars and Croissants, The Vette Shop, Beach Bums Corvette, Clinton Car Show, Chatterbox Farewell Cruise, Corvettes at Carlisle, and Wheels and Wings Covered Bridge Tour just to name a few.  Again, thanks to all who coordinated events throughout the year and to our Activities Chairman Mike W. for leading the charge.


Later in the year we will also be to get together as a group for the annual Al Tone Memorial CJCC Picnic and the CJCC Holiday Party.  Again, details for those events will be posted as we get closer to their respective dates.


In closing I would like to say it is an honor to serve as President of CJCC and I want to thank in advance the Officers and members who will help support me and assist with events and projects that we have planned for the upcoming year. I also ask each and every member, new and old, to get involved with the club be it as Group leader or wingman for our Wednesday rides or any of our other activities. You should realize that the more you put into something the more you get out of it. That being said, I am open to suggestions for new activities as well. Let’s all help to make this a great year… and then I will take the credit if we do! Ha


Thank you again to Rich Bonfanti for continuing the great line of past Presidents and for guiding the success and growth of the club. I can only hope to emulate his accomplishments.
