Vettes to Vets

Vettes to Vets

Vettes to Vets Flyer 2024 With Soldier’s Creed

Welcome! Vettes to Vets began in 2004 when Ron Morneau, a proud corvette owner and member of North Shore Corvettes of Massachusetts and the Second Corps Cadets Veterans Group, asked the Corvette community to help support sick and injured troops who have given up so much. The first event was a success with twenty-five cars and “Vettes to Vets” has been cruising to the hospital each year with much-needed personal supplies and increasing in numbers ever since.  Ron has since passed the torch to a most capable associate.  Good luck Karen Blandini in continuing this extraordinary event for our honored vets.
