The 11th annual All Corvette Car Show presented by Mark Twain Corvette Club in Hannibal, MO was a fantastic time this year. We had nine MICC couples and one guest couple attend for nine plastic cars and one metal car. Only around three hours away Hannibal is a quaint little town with a main street that is full of unique shops, restaurants, and history. The car show boasted 149 Corvettes for one of the biggest they had ever seen.
MICC members were awarded for their attendance with five of us winning cash or door prizes. We also brought home two trophies; Don Karnes for his C-7 and Roger Stone with his C-4. We enjoyed lunch in a little shop downtown and an awesome dinner at Fiddlestiks Food & Spirits. After dinner we went back to the hotel and visited in the lobby which was a great way to end the day of cars and shopping. Many thanks to Mike Branham for arranging all the details for this trip. The car show was great, food was fantastic, and the hotel accommodations were very nice to say the least. Great job Mike!

Paul Boyd joined the club at the July meeting. Welcome, Paul. It's great to have you.
Fireworks---Flags---Fun and CANDY! And I mean a lot of candy. We had 11 Corvettes join in the July 4th West Peoria Parade this year to acknowledge the St. Jude Drive 2017. The lead car this year was Robyn and Lisa Jones with their white 2017 C7 Coupe which they had decorated (really Lisa did all the work with the decorations) in Red-White and Blue stars and decals. They even had patriotic music streaming from their car that was enjoyed by all.
We had sunny weather, many smiles and a lot of laughs. After the parade it has become tradition that we all go to the 50's Diner at the Metro Center and enjoy lunch. We reminisce on these very special moments to celebrate OUR COUNTRY and this years parade. We are Blessed to live in this country.... Home of the FREE because of the BRAVE.Read More
This was the lunch stop in Indianapolis, Indiana on our way to Dayton, Ohio. It was like eating in a museum. What a fabulous place to stop at. Great job, Dan Hittinger, lining this up.
