Vettes in the Midwest
Larry reported on Vettes in the Midwest. He met with Bruce Layman and he said all workers will be given shirts. There will still be a donation to Children's Haven in the clubs name. We as a club can still have a 50/50 pot and raffle. If you volunteer to work the event, your dinner will be paid for. There will be a meeting for all people interested in working this event. Please sign up or contact Larry Lankford if you are interested. You may enter the car show if you are a club member but you must pay to do so.
