This event is for Tomoka Heights residents only, but since we have many Cruisers that reside in Tomoka, we want to let you know.

Where are you gonna get a better deal? Live music will be provided by David Nicholls and there’s be a 50/50 drawing.
So, if you live in Tomoka and feel like staying close to home, come on down to the Lakeside Pavilion. Plenty of parking and shade!
Corvette Man, Mel Feathers’ Tribute
Since there’s a lot of cross-over between Lake Country cruisers and Highlands County Corvettes, we wanted to let everyone know.
Mel’s wife, Marsha, has announced an informal open house to honor Mel on April 1st at their home at 178 Lake Drive Blvd., in the Harder Hall area of Sebring from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.
If you knew Mel and would like to attend, I am sure he and Marsha would be proud to have all the HCC members and their Corvettes stop in to visit!
Mary Carol Plott and John Meyerhoff will be attending. Mel was a Corvette guy who loved his Vettes and was a regular at the Highlands County Corvettes activities! If you need more info, contact John at; email@example.com
Just a reminder, our next Lake Country Cruisers Car & Bike Show will be Saturday, April 8, 2023, and will also be a Swap Meet!
We’ll be starting at 9 am and running to around 2 pm to give those that want to find or sell car and bike parts some extra time.
It’s still a “Car & Bike Show”, so bring your best ride! For full details, CLICK HERE.
That’s all for now, everyone, perhaps we’ll see you at one of the events this weekend, if not, we’ll see YOU on April 8, 2023! – Scott, Ron & Pete
