Thank You “Spirits of 53 Corvette Club”!
The Spirits of 53 Corvette club was started in the spring of 1974 and was originally based in South Brunswick at the apartment of one of the three founders, all of whom lived in the town. They were Ron Pientka, Richard Arcadu, and Richard Denike.
Its beginning actually took place in late 1973, when unbeknownst to the other three, each founder had purchased his first Corvette. The common bond among the three was a Sunoco Station where they bought gas. It was at this station, Larini’s Sunoco on Route 27, Kendall Park that they met and compared cars, a Brown 1974 Coupe, a Gold 1969 Roadster, and a White 1969 Coupe. One discussion led to another and eventually the subject of a Corvette Club was mentioned. After reviewing the limited number of clubs available and what they offered, it was decided there was a need for a new, well organized, active club in the area.
The three formulated a basic format on which to develop a membership campaign. Leaflets were left on Corvette windshields. One of the first “meetings” of the fledgling club was held at the Mid-State Mall parking lot and succeeded in attracting a number of Corvette owners. Membership grew from three to ten to fifteen. At the current time, the membership is at 28 active.
The first group of elected officers of the Spirits of ’53 Corvette Club was: Walt Donovan, Wayne Weidmann, Ron Pientka and Rich Denike. Laffin Chevrolet of South River became the sponsor of the club during the presidency of Wayne Weidmann and meetings were held at the dealership. Since then meetings have been held at Malouf Auto Group and Pierre’s Restaurant. They will be held at the South Brunswick Township Utility Building in the immediate future.
The club traditionally has been a social organization with members participating in car shows, rallies, tours, and tech sessions. What brings the club the most pride is to help others such as local charities. Recent recipients have been: The Squibb Children’s Hospital, Make A Wish Foundation, Troopers Assisting Troopers and most recently, The Hugs for Brady Foundation.
Every year the club holds its Annual Corvette Show at the Forestall Village Complex and donates a portion of the proceeds to a charity organization. In 2014, the club members chose Hugs for Brady for its work in providing funding and support to fight pediatric cancer. Between donations at the show and the club’s donation, they were able to give Sherrie Wells a check for $1,000 at a January meeting held at the home of club member John Niemiec.
Club President Armand Graziani stated, “We were so happy to do something to help fight pediatric cancer so that more of our children can grow healthy and happy.”
