Corvette owners unite.
A representative with the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky., is scheduled to be the keynote speaker next Thursday, Sept. 4, at the McMinnville Noon Rotary Club’s regular meeting.
To commemorate the occasion, the Rotary Club is inviting all Corvette owners in Warren County to bring their cars to the Blue Building parking lot for a group photo. The picture will be taken overhead from a McMinnville Electric System bucket truck.
Corvette owners who are interested should enter the Blue Building parking lot between 12:30 and 1 p.m. on Sept. 4. McMinnville Police Department officers will be on hand directing car owners on where to park. The picture will be taken immediately following the Rotary luncheon around 1:15 p.m.
The National Corvette Museum houses over 70 Corvette models at its 110,000-square-foot facility in Bowling Green. The museum’s mission is to celebrate the Corvette and promote the preservation of the legendary sports car. The Corvette was first introduced in 1953.
“The photos will be offered to Magness Library for the permanent archives of Warren County and for the historical files of the Rotary Club,” said Rotary Club member Bill Zechman.
Due to limited seating and food service, the luncheon will be limited to Rotarians and their invited guests. However, any Warren County resident who owns a Corvette is cordially invited to bring their cars and join in the group photo shoot.
In order to prepare appropriately for the spacing of cars in the photo, it is asked all Corvette owners who wish to participate to call Zechman State Farm at 473-6523 no later than 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3. Carol Rutledge will collect brief information about the model and any special features.
Some owners have more than one Corvette. If they can find an extra driver, they’re most welcome to bring their additional cars.
