4C Provides Special Birthday Celebration

90th Birthday Corvette Ride

On 06/08/18, a group of 4C members helped Gloria Hanson, a perfect stranger and one of our Colorado neighbors, celebrate her amazing 90th Birthday with a cherished Corvette Cruise. The Club was contacted, via our website, by her son-in-law Bill who explained that Gloria has always wanted a ride in a vintage Corvette and always talks about them. 4C President, Les Rhoades replied back that our club would arrive in true Corvette style to give Gloria a ride. The 4C membership was quick to get on board and support this great surprise. New members Andrew and Jenna Hill supplied the vintage Corvette, which is a favorite of Gloria's, and additional club members showed up to offer rides to family members. Gloria's birthday Corvette cruise went down Wadsworth past Chatfield State Park and took the back streets to Ed Bozarth Chevrolet where Gloria had the opportunity to sit in the 1954 Corvette displayed in the new car showroom. From there, Gloria was taken back to her house where everyone shared some cake and drinks.
