On Thursday, August 8, the Cedar Valley Corvette Club made its weekly cruise, and the destination was Dysart. Weather permitting every Thursday evening the group gets together. Some cars meet up beforehand and drive with each other, while others meet everyone at the destination. They cruise all over the Cedar Valley spanning from Independence, Marshalltown, and Waverly, with Dysart being about as far south as they travel.
The club has nearly 90 families that belong to it, and on your average Thursday evening they will have around 20-40 cars. They generally meet somewhere for dinner, or ice cream, and while visiting Dysart they stopped by the Thirsty Bulldog for some delicious food! They also plan the occasional day trip and go on a longer adventure. Sometimes they head up to Northeast Iowa to see the Mississippi River, and the beautiful leaves when they change colors in fall.
One of the oldest cars involved in the Corvette Club belongs to Ora and Jackie Hennessy, who are residents of Dysart. They have a 1961 cherry red convertible Corvette, but you don't have to have an older car to be in the club. Any Corvette is welcome and you can see a wide array of different years present. There is some brand new ones, and everything in between there, including the 1961 beauty belonging to the Hennessys.
Bev and Larry Moser pose with their Corvette at the Cedar Valley Corvette Club’s weekly cruise, which was held in Dysart on August 8.
Larry and Bev Moser are originally from Waterloo, and still reside there. They have belonged to the club since it's inception around July of 2006. They love meeting up and seeing all of the beautiful cars in one place. This is the second Corvette Larry has owned, and probably won't be his last!
The Cedar Valley Corvette Club does not require any formal membership or money, there is no rules either. Except one: get together and have a fun time with others who also enjoy Corvettes!
