In Memory of ..

Lester " Norm" Fisher;

Norm Fisher, a long time member of Corvettes of PA, passed away unexpectedly early Sunday morning, August 3, 2014. Our deepest sympathies go out to Norm's loving wife , Mary Anne, and to his entire family as they deal with Norm's untimely passing. 

Click on the "In Memory of..." tab in the Members Only Section to access the Memorial to Norm. 

Norm will be missed by all.


Trip to Bowling Green, KY was a Huge Success:
Our 13 Corvette Caravan traveled almost 2,000 miles visiting the Biltmore Estate, the Corvette Assembly Plant, the National Corvette Museum, and we drove the "Tail of the Dragon" along the way. Part way thru the trip the caravan grew when No. 14 joined in. 
The website has been swamped with photos of all the fun, so we decided to publish them in 2 albums. Each Album can be seen in the PHOTOS section by clicking the tab above. Thanks to Karen Bavaro, Marie Tuma and Ed Armstrong for sharing their photos which appear in Album No. 1, and thanks to Kaye Carr whose photos appear in Album No. 2.
