About Us

Background Information:

Celebrating 60 Years!!Capital City Corvette Club was established in 1958.  We are celebrating our 60th anniversary this year.  CCCC was one of the original six clubs that chartered the National Council of Corvette Clubs in 1959.  NCCC's 60th anniversary celebration will take place during the National Convention in Denver, CO during the week of July 7-12, 2019.

In the early days, the number of clubs was rather small with all being located east of the Mississippi. Today, there are about 250 Clubs in 16 Regions both East and West of the Mississippi! The membership in NCCC is comprised of more than 17,500 Members and is the largest non-profit, all volunteer Corvette organization in the United States! CCCC is one of the 16 Corvette clubs that make up the Michigan Region of NCCC.

The purpose of CCCC and NCCC is to promote interest in Corvette ownership and operation, to publish information on the use and operation of the Corvette, and to establish an organized effort to encourage others to participate in the enjoyment connected with the use of the Corvette!

Capital City Corvette Club follows an approved set of By-Laws, which includes our full purpose statement.

Our club also receives points when our members participate in NCCC sanctioned events!

2017 Scholarship RecipientsCommunity Involvement: Throughout the year we participate in a variety of fund raising activities allowing us to make donations to several worthwhile causes.

Every year two $500 scholarships are provided to outstanding Automotive Technology students who attend the Capital Area Career Center. Both are memorial scholarships, and honor: John Bechtel (a former club member/President, who started the scholarship program) and Colin Nethaway (a former Career Center student). Additional funds were added to CCCC's scholarships in 2017 with a total of five $500 scholarships awarded.

Colin Nethaway Memorial Scholarships for $500 each were given to Jarrett Gawel, Christopher Ciffin and Michaela Chambers. John Bechtel Memorial Scholarships for $500 each were given to Jarrett Gawel and Christopher Ciffin. Pictured from the left are Jarrett Gawel and Christopher Ciffin. Michaela Chambers was unable to attend the event.

Blessing of the Vettes.In the past, we hosted Cruise-In for Kids in the spring to raise funds for Blessings in a Backpack, a program providing weekend food survival backpacks to at-risk kids in the Grand Ledge School District during the school year.  We raise funds for the VFW National Home for Children at our annual Blessing of the Vettes. In the fall we now host a car show at Shaheen Chevrolet to raise funds for Children's Miracle Network.  All types of cars, trucks and motorcycles are welcomed at this event!

Our members host BINGO parties for two different groups of lively senior citizens in the spring and fall.  Members bring the bingo prizes and an assortment of desserts to share.

We wrap up each year by donating to local charities, including the Greater Lansing Food Bank.

As you can see, we are involved in a variety of activities, all designed to have fun with our cars and fellow club members. Please come to a meeting or contact any of our club officers if you are interested in learning more about our club events, NCCC Convention, or NCCC as a whole. New members are always welcome.
