New Members to LGCA
by Sherron Garnett
Cindy and Frank Ellis
Frank & Cindy Ellis: Frank & Cindy moved to Colorado 3 years ago from Burbank, California. They are friends/neighbors of Sally & Steve Baldi and also live in Parker, CO. They currently own (2) Corvettes – a 2008 (Z06) – Red, and a 1963 – Burgundy Convertible. On their very ‘first date’ (Sept- 1965) they went to Lyons Drag Strip. They were married the following year. They have 2 children, a son who also lives in Parker with his wife and 2 chil- dren (Brenda & Brody). Their daughter lives in Charlotte, N.C. with her hus- band and 2 children (Nicole & Riley). They are excited about being mem- bers of LGCA, and were both active members of the Burbank Road Kings (Hot Rod Club) which was started in 1952. Cindy retired from Real Estate in 2008 and Frank retired in 2009 as a General Construction Contractor. Wel- come to Frank and Cindy. From the sounds of it, I’m sure they’ll find a com- mittee soon to work on and we look forward to getting to know them bet- ter.
Scott and Susan Spelman
Susan & Scott Spelman: Susan, not Scott is the owner of the Corvette! She owns a 2004 LeMans Blue Commemorative Coupe, and sometimes even lets Scott drive it…imagine that! She has been employed at Jeppesen Sanderson for the past 15 years. Scott is employed at Harland Financial So- lutions and has been there also for 15 years. They have lived in Colorado for the past 19 years after moving here from western Pennsylvania. They’ve attended VOTR a couple of times in the past, so are familiar with LGCA’s event. Buying a Corvette has been a life-long dream and /or a mid-life crisis thing for Susan. Scott is a car person and both he and Susan are looking forward to being around other “car people”. We welcome Susan and Scott to the Club, and look forward to the day Scott ‘also’ has his own Corvette, so Susan doesn’t have to share hers.
David Dempsey: Although Dave was born in Denver, CO, he was raised in Colorado Springs. He spent 5 years in the Air Force and was stationed in Alaska. He retired from Lucent Technologies in 2005, and went to work for AT&T as a consultant two weeks later. He bought his very 1st Corvette 2 weeks ago from Purifoy Chevrolet – a 2005 Daytona Sunset Orange Coupe. He is a long time friend of Vickie and Don Bloom. Don and Dave’s parents are also long time friends. Whether you’ve owned Corvettes all your life, or you just bought your first one, Dave….we know you’ll enjoy driving your ‘new’ car and we also hope to see you participate in the many activities our Club offers to all of its members.
