A Touch of Glass Corvette Club, Inc.

Club Minutes for July 16, 2019


The meeting was called to order at 7:04 PM by Will Anderson, President.

Will asked if we had any new members or guest. Jeff Hatland is a returning member.  

Treasurer’s Report: Anita read the treasurer’s report. Steve Minger made a motion to accept the Treasurer’s report as written and Arch seconded the motion. All were in favor.

Minutes:  Will announced the minutes have been posted on the website and have been emailed to all of the members who have provided email addresses. Steve M. made the motion to wave the reading of the minutes and to accept the minutes as written. Betsy second the motion. All were in Favor.

Will passed Charlene a letter to be read from Cornerstone Hospice to thank the club for their donation. 

Member Update: Rick K. informed the member that Roseanna was up north visiting family and was attacked by a family member's dog. She sustained severe injury to her hand. She was having surgery that day. A card was passed around to be signed for her to know we are all thinking of her.   

NCM Update:  No update to report.

Care Committee: Maureen wished all the members having birthdays and/or anniversaries in July and August to those who had or having a birthday, “Happy Birthday” and those who had or having an anniversary, “Happy Anniversary”. We had many who were celebrating their anniversary; Chuck and Barbara 62 years, Betsy and Alan 59 years, Larry and Diana 57 years and Bob and Cindy 43 years.

Facebook: Betsy had nothing to report. 

Old Business

Challenge Coins:Will still has the Corvette challenge coins available, $12.00 each.

Car Show: Will asked if anyone would be interested in being in charge of a ‘car show’ with Cornerstone Hospice. Betsy and Dennis volunteered to help but no one wants to be in charge. Will tabled for next meeting. 

Beat the Heat; Tropic Theater had 21 tickets sold. Those who attended thought it was a terrific show. 

New Business:

Beat the Heat: Will suggested one way to beat the heat would be for members to consider organizing a caravan to a restaurant or Russell Stover. It doesn’t have to be far just something for the club to do together. 

Entertainment for Club Christmas Party: Will knows of a band that could perform for our Christmas Party instead of a DJ. Will, will bring the bands CD to next meeting for everyone to hear. The cost for a band is more than a DJ, which is something to consider. 

Trophy Case at Vann Gannaway: The club’s trophies are displayed in the trophy case located in the service departments vending machine area. 

Cecil Clark Chevrolet: At this time it will remain Cecil Clark, the contract with Jim Hall fell through. 

Tropic Theater: August 10th. doing another Tropic Theater show. Instead of the club collecting the money and getting tickets this would be done individually.
