Lake County Honor Flight #11
Jim Arquilla (left) and Jim Benton leave for Washington D.C.
Two of our very own members, Jim Arquilla and Jim Benton, joined a group of fellow American veterans for a weekend trip to Washington D.C. to visit the monuments and memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
Their trip ended with a police escort from the Milwaukee airport to Veterans Memorial Park in North Chicago. The escort was led by police cruisers from just about every town imaginable followed by five club Corvettes and one metal car along with hundreds of motorcycles. At the park there were additional club members along with a record crowd cheering the returning members home. Presentations were made and the veterans spoke along with a number of dignitaries. It was a moving event and several of our members said it was one of the best things that we have ever done.
Several pictures, videos and comments can be seen on the Lake County Honor Flight Facebook page.
The first reported sighting of our new parking lot banner, hanging at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, has been made by Wilbur and Pam Buckle. Wilbur can be seen pointing at the banner like a proud father while Pam takes a picture of the monumental occasion on September 2nd. The banner is located in the parking lot outside of the Corvette Cafe. It will remain there until the end of May 2018.
A perfect day for a Wisconsin cruise
Wednesday, September 6th was a picture perfect day with cool temperatures and blue skies. Thirty-one NSCC members, one guest, eighteen Corvettes and one Jaguar came to caravan the two-lane county roads of southern Wisconsin from the Welcome Center on I-94 to Palmyra.
The date was Sunday, August 13, 2017. The place was Byron Dragway in Byron, Illinois. Two red Corvettes battled it out until there was just one winner, Larry Latko (shown on the right). Ed Harms may have lost the battle but he won the war. As seen in the picture above, shortly after the race Larry's car exploded into a huge mushroom cloud of smoke.
