CCM Past President’s Report
Carl D. Dutch
Greetings and Salutations!
The 2018 60th Annual CCM Awards Banquet was held on January 12th, 2019 at Laurel Manor in Livonia, MI. Thanks to all the attendees, presenters, Laurel Manor Staff, Les Stanford Chevrolet, and special thanks go out to Pat Jutras! She makes sure the Banquet is an event to remember!
Congratulations go out to all the award winners and I’d like to give special attention to a few special awardees:
CCM 50 Yr. Members; Sharon Fast, Tony Krause, Rick Parent, and John Phillippe
CCM Ken Watson/Most Valuable Member; Steven T. Budaj CCM President’s Award; Matthew McDonnell
2019 is here and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to an exciting Competition Season!
On a sad note, my lifelong friend, Steve Hogan passed away from natural causes last week. Some of you may remember him from his participation at a few CCM events over the years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this difficult time.
In my 3 terms as the proud President of one of the oldest and best Corvette Clubs in the world, I have felt nothing but respect and admiration. That being said, I want to thank both the BOD and Membership for giving me the opportunity to serve as the first African-American President in the 60 year history of CCM! I have tried to represent CCM proudly and effectively, upholding the by-laws and long standing traditions of CCM.
I look forward to continuing to be a proud member and continue contributing to the legacy of The Corvette Club Of Michigan!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns, ideas, questions or complaints!
Together, We Are CCM!
