From Our President 2021 - Ken Nelson

 

The Connecticut Military Corvette Club Inc. is comprised of active, former and retired military personnel. It is open to all individuals and branches of military service including active, reserve and National Guard. Our purpose is to support our fellow veterans while at the same time promoting fellowship among our membership and prompting the unique aspects of the Corvette sports car as a hobby and life style.

 The organization was founded on January 2012 by just three people. Soon membership increased to 10 charter members. Our membership has fluctuated over the years. Presently we have a membership of thirty-two military individuals. Although we are founded in Connecticut our membership is open military personnel all across the country, overseas and US territories.

 Our primary mission is to support military personnel in their time of need. We accomplish this through open car shows and various other automotive related activities. We work in tandem with other car clubs and veteran associations. We have worked to developed a strong sponsorship base that contributes funds to our organization.  The vast majority of all of the monies we raise, goes to Connecticut veteran organizations. We are a very proud sponsor of the Secret Santa, an event, which provides clothing and personal hygiene items for our veterans at a Connecticut VA Hospital.

 On the lighter side, the cub has many social events. We have brunch cruises, holiday parties and picnics. We participate in parades and car shows. Many of our members makes an annual pilgrimage to Corvettes at Carlisle. This event is one of the largest Corvette gatherings in the United States and certainly the largest on the east coast. We caravan down to the site in Carlisle, PA. It is held on the last full weekend in August, every year.  These events bring together all the members of the club and create a lot of lasting camaraderie and memories.

 Thank you visiting our website. I Hope to meet you soon at a meeting or one of our events.

 Sincerely,

 

 Ken Nelson

 Club President
