Elaine Heretta ~ Director of Publications-Blue Bars Editor
East Ohio Region ~ Tiretown Corvette Club
Spouse: Chuck

Patrick Dolan ~ Director of Charity
Michigan Region ~ Royal Corvettes of Western Michigan
Spouse: Cindy
Kids:  Jennifer  (FCOA #0002) and Sarah (FCOA #0003)
Corvettes:  1963 Split Window, 1970 ZR-1 Convertible and 1973 454 Convertible
Favorite Vette Fun: From 1973-1990 it was the competition of racing. Since 1988 I have had the privilege of representing NCCC at functions across the country so I have met hundreds of Corvette-related individuals. I have always enjoyed Conventions.
Patrick says: Go to Convention! It is the best bang for the buck. If you are looking to become more involved, the Charity Committee is always open to workers.

Debbie Lindsey ~ Director of Sponsorship
Southwest Region ~ Cowtown Vettes
Spouse: Jerry
Kids:  Colin and Brent
Corvettes:  1986 Black Corvette
Favorite Vette Fun: For events, it would be autocrossing although I have not done this since 1992. Working with conventions has given me the opportunity to meet many people in NCCC that I would not have known otherwise and this has created a lot of "Corvette Fun" for me.
Debbie says: My association and involvement in NCCC has given me some of my closest friends in life including my husband and I am very thankful for that! I hope that we can all be encouraging and positive with each other as that is what motivates people to want to do more and become more involved!

Joan Thomas ~ Webmaster
Midwest Region ~ Mad City Vettes
Spouse: Jim and I were married on December 26, 1964
Kids:  Katy, Sandi and Duffy (James II)
Grandkids:  Ashley, Johnny, Erik, Karl, Fox (James III) and Roark
Great-Granddaughter:  Brynlee
Corvettes:  2002 Electron Blue Z06
Favorite Vette Fun: I especially loved Low Speed Autocross Events during my Competition years. My favorite fun thing to do is still to encourage someone to try Autocross. If Jim wouldn’t have encouraged me (pushed me) into trying in September of 1995 I can’t imagine what 1995 thru 2012 would have been like.
Joan says: There is a reason why the windshield is so big to see where you're going and why the rear view mirror is so small to see where you've been.

Pat Kelly ~ FCOA Director
Midwest Region ~ Badger State Vettes
Spouse: Gary (yup, that Gary Kelly, past Vice President of Competition!)
Kids:  Jeni, Bill, Jason, & Michele

Corvettes:  1970 454 Daytona Yellow convertible, 1978 L82 4-speed Silver Anniversary, 2003 50th Anniversary convertible, 2014 Z51 Laguna Blue coupe plus 21 others over the years
Favorite Vette Fun: What’s there not to like about anything you can do with a Vette??? We’ve done just about all of it ~ social & competitive and it’s hard to pick a favorite.
Pat says: Participate in Corvette activities whenever you can. You’ll never regret the time spent with your Corvette “family”. Volunteer to help your Club, your Region and NCCC ~ you’ll find it very rewarding. And don’t forget that FCOA is the foundation of NCCC’s 21st Century! Get your kids, Grand-kids, nieces and nephews interested in Vettes now ~ you don’t want them running around in a Viper, Porsche or Mustang, do you?
