BOWLING GREEN PLANT SHUTDOWN
"VETTES ON THE LANDING"
MCCC Spring Fling

LAKE HARRIS HIDEAWAY
3/15/17: Our thanks to Sharon & Kurt ADAMS for, again, putting together what was a fun, somewhat chilly, lunch cruise to the LAKE HARRIS HIDEAWAY, one of the premier "biker bars" in the central Florida area.
It was very, very difficult to hold back the tears Friday night, Feb 10 in Ocala. 12 member cars acted as limos for a group of Special Need kids & adults for their "Night to Shine". A private, very special prom complete with a red carpet, paparazzi, cheering fans, balloons, and lotsa, lotsa of love greeted each and every prom attendee. They experienced the time of their life, their very own special night, a night they'd not have had but for the hard word and support of many, many people. Our thanks to Ron & Marty Tanner and their friends, Joe & Brenda Barton for organizing what will hopefully be an annual event for our club.
Village Vettes Corvette Show
Thanks to the work of many committee members our club again filled the Sumter Landing Square with 54 Corvettes. This was the kickoff of our 2016 Toys-4-Tots drive and we thank all committee members, participants and member volunteers that helped us make this a truly memorable experience for all.
Our staff videographer got a bit carried away when an irate, obviously impatient, and no doubt, retired "villager" in a Kia Soul nearly ran him over after blowing his horn repeatedly. Please excuse the language slip.
The club desperately needs committed committee members to help develop car show cruises, dinner runs, points of interest cruises, etc. for the club. We all own CORVETTES and we love to drive them >>>BUT<<< we need organized events to do so. With close to 500 active members, there must be some folks out there that is willing to step up. Other local car clubs, larger and smaller have interesting activities, cruises, dinners, etc but we, for whatever reason, seem to have some trouble emulating this. Please contact the BOD to help us make this club the best car club in THE VILLAGES.
Welcome to the Village Vettes Corvette Club website. Here you will find a plethora of useful and, perhaps, useless information about our club and our beloved cars,
The following video embodies what the
is all about. Loving our cars and taking care of our fellow man. Before you go any further, please take a moment to watch this:
In September 2014 our club, THE VILLAGE VETTES CORVETTE CLUB, was the recipient of the FIRST PLACE AWARD for our BANNER displayed at the NATIONAL CORVETTE M-- USEUM in Bowling Green, KY. Our banner will proudly fly for one year at the entrance to the museum for all CORVETTE visitors to see. This was presented to the club's NCM AMBASSADOR, Bill Clements, at the Sept 2014 20TH ANNIV. NATIONAL CORVETTE MUSEUM CARAVAN which many of our members participated in. My thanks to my son, Kevin, for his continued support in teaching me website design and graphics "that make sense".
We're were hoping for a "WE'RE #1 REPEAT" with our submission for 2015 shown below but the "NCM Banner Gods" were not smiling for us. We did, however, capture the 3rd place award which, considering the size and median age of our club members is pretty darn good. This simply motivates Kevin & I to come up with one for 2017 that absolutely blows away the competition.
We have a very, very active club, enjoying the camaraderie of our fellow members and our cars with many, many cruises, shows, etc. on our agenda. Please visit our calendar page for details and links to our upcoming cruises.
