2012 Fall Color Run
Welcome to Suburban Corvette Club of Minnesota Website
Suburban Corvette Club was established in January, 1970, led by a group of friends who were looking to get together for some social activities involving Corvettes.
The original club consisted of 12 members, and has grown to almost 200 members. In 1976, SCCM joined the National Council of Corvette Clubs. In 2005 the club hosted the NCCC annual convention in the Twin Cities and Brainerd.
SCCM contributes to several charities, the largest being Spina Bifida for the past 25 years. The club has also done special fundraisers for Cancer, Caring and Sharing Hands, and food shelf drives.
The membership is active in car shows, cruises, and charitable and social events that includes travel throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.
We encourage you to join us on facebook, and attend a meeting, which is held the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Jimmy’s Food & Drink, 1132 East County Rd. E in Vadnais Heights.
Hospitality Committee. Please contact Gloria Weeks if you know/learn of an SCM member that is dealing with a lengthy illness or has had a death in the family. Gloria is looking to the membership to be her eyes and ears and would appreciate being notified so she can send a card on behalf of the club. Thanks.

Elko has the usual concession stand food & drink, hamburgers, nachos, hot dogs, pop, beer etc. Roger Dahlquist will meet the group at the Lakeville Super Target parking lot (I35 exit 84, 185th st W. on the East side of I35) by 4:00pm.
