BULLHEAD CITY — Colorado River Corvette Club members are making a concrete commitment to leaving the roads cleaner than they found them.
For the second year, CRCC is partnering with the city to clean trash from Marina Boulevard between Highway 95 and Lakeside Drive and the community is invited to help.
Members and willing volunteers will begin picking up trash beginning at 10 a.m., Saturday Feb. 24.
“Last year the club was asked to adopt Marina Boulevard and pick up trash in the fields across the street from the Motor Vehicle Department and City Hall,” said Greg Attl, CRCC president. “We’ve added the project to our community service schedule.”
Club members and volunteers will start at each end of Marina Boulevard and meet in the middle, Attl said. The project is not expected to take more than 90 minutes.
“Corvettes will be parked in the Police Department parking lot on Marina to view,” Attl said.
For more information about participating, call Attl at 661-373-3704 or by email at email@example.com.
The community-minded car aficionados are partnering with City Public Works with an assist from Bullhead City Police Department, which is providing safety vests and trash bags for all participants.
“We thank the Colorado River Corvette Club for their assistance in the past and look forward to another successful project this time,” said Public Works Director Pawan Agrawal. “Bullhead City appreciates the support from local service clubs and other volunteer organizations that help us improve and maintain our City facilities.”
CRCC looks for a variety of community service projects each year, Attl said.
“This year we have ... Veterans Stand Down in February, a Boys and Girls Clubs fundraiser at Findlay in March, Relay for Life in May, Tri-State and Kingman Veterans Parades in November,” Attl said. “Our club will also be presenting two $1,000 checks — one to the Guardian Foundation and one to the Veterans Resource Center at our Feb. 17 meeting in Kingman.”
A new event for CRCC, the Pancake Breakfast/Corvette Day at Findlay Motors, will benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Colorado River, Attl said.
“It will be a great morning of fun with a full pancake breakfast, Corvettes and kids,” he said. “The event offers professional photos of the kids with our corvettes and corvette rides along side the airport with checkered flags waving. Adults can test drive Corvettes from Findlay all morning.”
The fundraiser will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon, Saturday, March 31 at Findlay Motors, 2565 Laughlin View Drive.
The CRCC has more than 100 members residing mostly in Bullhead City, but also in Kingman and Lake Havasu.The club was established in 1995 and members enjoy rallying, day caravans, drive and dines, socials, fundraisers, auto-crossing and overnight and longer road trips, Attl said. The National Council of Corvette Clubs Roadrunner Region sanctions the group. For more information about the club, go to www.coloradorivercorvetteclub.com.
