Last Friday at Vinny’s Italian Kitchen January 26, 2018 Twenty one Rogue Valley Corvette members enjoyed our “Last Friday” social at Vinny’s Italian Kitchen. It was great to visit with everyone. The eggplant dish I had was outstanding. I am never disappointed when we have dinner at Vinny’s. Vinny had a recent birthday and our group along with other diners that were in the same room sang Happy Birthday to Vinny. Vinny has been a great support to Rogue Valley Corvettes since we started back in 2006. We had two potential new members talk to us and they will both be coming to the next meeting. It was a great evening and a wonderful start to making memories in 2018.

It was so great to have you and other Southern Oregon/Northern California Corvette Members on campus today for a tour of our Auto-Diesel programs! I wanted to send you the group picture we took as part of the day . I think it turned out great, don’t you? In case you need to refer to names in your newsletter, our KCC Foundation Board Chair is Steve Tippin and our Auto-Diesel Program Lead is Jeff Rush. Both are in the picture (as well as me too) as you can see in the attached.
THANK YOU and your members so much for your generous donation to our students and their success! J

Rogue Valley Corvettes is so proud to be part of such a great event supporting our veterans. Thirteen Rogue Valley Corvettes came out to the Veterans Day Parade to escort dignitaries, three Southern Oregon beauty queens and veterans from different branches of the service. We had our own Rod Rancik in full uniform driven by his wife Ellen and Rod McCloud drove his father in-law, Richard Fultineer, a World War II Veteran. We are blessed to have several veterans in RVC. We thank all of you for your service. The Medford streets were lined with people in support of all that were in the parade. After the parade concluded, we all went to Centennial Golf Club for lunch. We enjoyed having guests Wayne & Linda (Greg and Susan neighbors) join us. The food was great and the company even better.
