Welcome to our web site!


Members of The First State Corvette Club look forward to our 2024 open car show on September 14 with a rain date September 15.  Once again we are happy to announce the venue will be The Pizzadili Vineyard and Winery, located at 1683 Peach Basket Rd., Felton Delaware. Last year we awarded 40 trophies. This year we plan 50 awards with four classes:  Corvette, Street Stock, Modified, and Restored. Registration begins at 9AM and closes at 12PM.  First State Corvette members’ vehicles will not be judged but we invite attendees to take time to view our Corvettes on display.   We will have a 50-50, DJ, door prizes, gift baskets, an auction, vendors, and food.  Pre-registration is $15 and $20 on the day of show.  Proceeds will benefit the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.  Watch this web site for the car show flyer and pre-registration form, coming soon.


Our club members are very involved with charitable organizations such as “Adopt a Highway”, The Ronald McDonald House, Polytech scholarship programs, the Delaware Food Bank and The Home of the Brave. We participate in local homecoming and community parades. If you want to join a great group of people, this is the club for you!


Marianne Callahan, President 


At the May 2024 FSCC Meeting, Mr. Fuller said, "Thanks so much to the Corvette Club for the donation. Your continued support has been greatly appreciated and we feel so honored that you have maintained your support of the Home of the Brave Foundation.  The funds you donated will be used in our general operating fund to assist with utilities, food for our veterans' meals and fuel for transporting our veterans to their various appointments."



 FSCC members "HOPPED" at the chance to enjoy an Easter Brunch at Crabby Dick's in Delaware City on Easter Sunday!  After a brisk drive along Route 9, the group had a great afternoon on a special day.

FSCC Members went green for the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Smyrna.  It was a great day for fun in the sun.  Unlike Kermit the Frog says, sometimes it's EASY being Green!

           Corvette club members celebrate Veterans Day 2023

Veteran residents of the Delaware Veterans Home in Milford, Delaware were, again treated to a parade of Corvettes as club members drove by.  Judging by the smiles and waves from the residents, the parade was a success.  Members brought a small trailer full of snacks and goodies for the residents' enjoyment.

FSCC Expresses our gratitude to all those who participated and we expect to visit our veterans again!


Members of The Beachcomber Corvette Club, Easternshore Corvette Club (Shorevette's) and First State Corvette Club traveled to Concord, NC to visit the Hendrick's Performance Center. Afterwards, we traveled to the Childress Winery in Lexington NC for a late lunch /early dinner. The next morning we went on a tour of the Charlotte Motor Speedway and Track. It was a fantastic experience and we then went our separate ways. Plans are made for this very worthwhile trip in 2024!

On October 2, 2023 members of FSCC, once again, worked to beautify Apple Grove School Road for the Adopt A Highway cleanup campaign!  Said Elaine Straughn, “We had a beautiful day on a lovely road that did not have too much trash to collect.  It was a nice walk followed by a nice breakfast outing.”


Pictured left to right:  Jim Keller, Venetta Keller, Linda Berry, Don Johnson, Michelle Baltrusch, Elaine Straughn, George DeOld and Betty Ann Johnson.  Sitting below is Carl Baltrusch, with compliments to John Johnson for taking the photo and ferrying us to the opposite ends of the road and picking us up at the end! 


Picture Perfect was the weather for the FSCC Cruise In, Wednesday, Sept 20.  Several members enjoyed the evening of spirited conversation and fresh air.  Check the newsletter for details on coming events.



On May 21, FSCC members gathered at Killens Pond State Park for the club's annual picnic.  FUN and GAMES were the focus of the day and a great time was had by all!  


      Spring Cleaning?  It's that time again!

FSCC members, once again, took to the roadway, gathering all things that shouldn't be there.  A few years ago, the club adopted Apple Grove School Road and has continued cleaning the area, twice a year!  Come this fall, "We'll be back!"
