MISSION STATEMENT of Pacesetters Corvette Club and Corvettes Serving America Foundation:

For 2008, we’re participating in a literal "pledge drive" covering an estimated 3000 round trip miles, passing through a combined 15 Southern, Northern, and Mid-Western states. This year, we're calling the event... TOUR FOR A CURE!

The PaceSetters Corvette Club (www.pscc1.org) and our 501 (c)(3) non-profit foundation, the Corvettes Serving
America (CSA) Foundation (www.csafoundation.org) are at it again !!!

It was a great honor to guide this wonderful, dedicated group,
mostly from the Atlanta area, with KY & FL also present,
on the Maine leg of their 3000 mile fundraising tour.

While there, I was also interviewed by Channel 6.


After lunch, we took off on a scenic 73 mile drive to Pemaquid Lighthouse,
featured on the Maine quarter.

This was a typical view on the way.
