The meeting was called to order at 7:05 PM by Bob Vehmeier.  Bob introduced Tom Rhinehart who has joined our club and Jim and Kathy Hepp who have joined as well.

Treasurer’s Report:  Chuck reported that we had various deposits and expenses.  A motion was made that we accept the Treasurer’s report by Steve M. and seconded by Larry R.   All were in favor.

Member Update:  Please keep Connie Wagner in your thoughts.   Wes Schrum had rotator cuff surgery.  Will and Jessica had a baby boy (now 4 months old).

Care Committee:  Maureen wished all the members having birthdays in May and June a Happy Birthday.

Facebook:  If you are going to post pictures (we thank you for doing so) please run them by Betsy or Bob first.

Old Business:
Bob mentioned that at the last meeting he brought up having a Corvettes and Coffee event at the Mall.   He ran it by the mall personnel and they were receptive, but had to check with the Board to see if they want to have it.  They also have a go-cart track and maybe we can go as a club one day.

New Business:
Ride/Rally – Dennis has come up with another ride and then we will end up at a restaurant.   We decided the date will be June 30th.  Rick K. mentioned that he had a ride he was looking into, but it would take about 2 hours and 40 minutes one way.

Anniversary Dinner – it was decided that this will take place on September 16th at Takis Restaurant in Leesburg.

Leesburg Tropic Theater – Chuck said he found another place that a few of our members have gone to in Leesburg that has good shows.  It is called the Tropic Theater and they are doing a show on July 14th and anyone interested should let Chuck know and pay him before May 30, so he can get the tickets.

Fall Trip – It was decided that we would let Rick do his ride and then report back to see if we wanted to do that, possibly in the early fall.

Shadow Officers – Anita is going to start to shadow Chuck and Dennis agreed to send out group e-mails for car shows, etc.
