The CVC Annual “Family Day” was held this past July 28th, making it the 39th annual event for the club -- the last 22 years hosted by Bev & Beverly Hughes! The day started under sunny skies with the traditional late afternoon showers. At last count we had 104 Volvo’s and their families registered. Preparation for our 40th celebrations has already begun!
Volvo owners from south of the border, Quebec and all points of Ontario gathered, including representatives from Volvo of Waterloo, Volvo Metro West and Hamilton Volvo. The generous donation of swag from many Volvo dealerships, Volvo aftermarket specialists, and Volvo Car Canada were given away as door prizes throughout the day, with everyone going home with something!
Volvo door prizes were generously donated by John Martins (Proprietor), Brandon Martins, Kyle Fedsin and Greg Miller, Hamilton Volvo; Andrew Murdoc, Volvo of Oakville; Lorenzo D’Alessandro (Proprietor), Gary Sodoski, Volvo Metro West; Marcel Algieri (President), Chris Chapman, Newmarket Volvo; Scott Weller, Dan Wightman, Ken Ma, Volvo of Waterloo; Robert McMillan (Retailer Principal), Mark Garrett, Mirza Mustapha and Alex Caron, Volvo of Mississauga.
Additional prizes came from Dan Reynolds, DRD Distributing and Justin Lapointe, Justin’s Auto Repair. This year Justin also provided a station with diagnostic scanners to help car owners with concerns about their vehicle.
The CVC Executive would also like to acknowledge Mark McCullough, MMC Productions for providing the sound system and the Bryanston-Birr Optimist Club for providing the yummy food truck. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the dedicated crew of volunteers who help with preparation of the grounds before and after the show.
A special Thank You to Volvo Car Canada, specifically Matt Gergis, Managing Director of Volvo Car Canada including Amanda Ignatius, Media Communications and Marko Zupet, Mgr Events for partnering with our People’s Choice Awards, providing the beautiful award plaques in addition to Volvo swag given away at the gate.
On behalf of the CVC Executive, a warm and appreciative Thank You! to everyone who helped to make our annual event a success once again!
