Lounsbury Meeting Room 7PM
Present: Roger and Angie Bourgeois, Paul Dunn, Dave and Louise Fyffe, Gary Gaskin, Charles Gould, Wornick Price, Rick and Helen Estabrooks, Greg Zwicker, and Victor LeBlanc (11)

The regular monthly meeting was called to order by the president who introduced and warmly welcomed our special guest for the evening Cindy Wilcox, Eastern Representative for CCCC.  Eleven members were in attendance.

Minutes of the November 2018 meeting were accepted as read.

Continuing Business:
Information received from our autism support charity has indicated that they have received --- directly and indirectly --- $8800 from our club this year.  This includes the Lounsbury BBQ, Atlantic Nationals BBQ, GMCC, Atlantic Nationals contribution, and a personal donation from Trueman Copp.  This support is very important to the work they carry out.

Members were reminded that Lounsburyís continues to offer the club discount of 25% for all parts, labour, and related Corvette purchases at their location.

Forty four members and guests have registered for the Christmas party on December 08 with doors open at 5 PM and dinner served at 6.  There will be a Chinese auction, silent auction, Yankee Swap and a slide show of the seasonís events courtesy of Paul Dunn.

New Business: Following an all-member request for additional nominations for executive positions the following members agreed to serve for the 2019 season:

A discussion ensued regarding the reality that our club members are very good at helping as necessary  although finding new executive members is very difficult. 
Gary Gaskin expressed thanks on behalf of all members for those who continue to manage our executive affairs.

The following committee chairs and supporters were appointed:

Looking forward to 2019, the president spoke of the need for folks to plan runs.  He anticipates a great year and planning will begin in January or February following one of our monthly breakfast meetings.  Email is our primary means of communication which means that all members need to keep up on events.  Please register for runs in a timely fashion so events can be properly planned.

There being no further business, Cindy Wilcox was invited to speak on her work in the wider Corvette world.  Clubs flourish all over the world and it is the people contact that keeps many people attached to their clubs.  The Corvette may be a passion or a hobby but it knits us all together.

50/50 draw was won by Victor Leblanc for $12.
