sessions; preparing for emergencies; and of course just having fun
Since its creation, the club has had several
different special activities:

admirers of the Corvette sports car made only in Bowling Green.
Each year Bowling Green hosts a Corvette Homecoming during which
hundreds of Corvette owners visit our city.
