We are a "charitable based" organization of nearly 500 members who own more than 280 Corvettes. The club was established in 2005 and is comprised of Corvette owners who live in The Villages. The purpose of our club is to celebrate the ownership of America’s Sports Car, raise funds and supplies for local charities and enjoy the camaraderie of other Corvette enthusiasts.
We are a non-profit organization and contribute regularly to charitable organizations. Each calendar quarter we specify a charity to be the recipient of donations raised at our monthly meetings.
We participate in local and long distance car shows, club events like holiday parties and picnics, caravans to Daytona speedway for track runs and trips to auto showcases near and far. Cruises to eateries for lunch or dinner and day trips to local attractions are common. A list of all our upcoming cruises & events activities can be going to the EVENTS & CRUISES section this website:
We have, in past years, traveled to museums all over Florida including Ft. Lauderdale, Howie-in-the-Hills, Ocala, Punta Gorda , Sandestin, Sarasota, and Venice, to name a few.
Each fall we sponsor our own Village Vettes MEMBER’S ONLY Corvette Show here in The Villages at Lake Sumter Landing. We showcase 54 of our member’s cars in a “Show and Shine” format. This showcase is also used to raise charitable contributions for local causes.
On the second Thursday of each month we meet for dinner at a local restaurant in The Villages followed by our monthly meeting at the Eisenhower Regional Recreation Center’s Omar Bradley room. Eisenhower is the newest, largest, and most modern rec center in The Villages and is located just north of Brownwood Town Square. Membership is open to any resident of The Villages who owns a Corvette.
