Family Helping Family Directory Update: The NCCC has updated the national directory. With many of us traveling, and not expecting issues, this directory could provide support in areas where members might need assistance. corvettesnccc.org/Family/index.html  User name: NCCCHelp Password: QFHFnccc2015 If you are interested in volunteering for Family Helping Family helping in our area, please contact me or Denny Luther at publicrelations@corvettesnccc.com

FCOA (Future Corvette Owners of America) will celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2016.  They have asked for donations for goodie bags for the kids.

I have submitted a letter to Patrick Dolan, Director of Charity for the NCCC, to consider St. Jude as their charity for 2016. They will no longer raffle a corvette. Instead, they will sell 2,000 raffle tickets for $50.00 each with the winner of the raffle to getting a portion of the raffle and the charity to receive a portion of the raffle. Details will follow.

This request will not benefit the St. Jude Corvette Drive, Car Show, or Mid-Illinois Corvette Club. The proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. 

Sandy Arnold. Governor.
