LVCC Meetings.  LVCC normally meets on the 4th Wednesday of every month at the LANTA bus center in Allentown, PA.  Time:  7:30 PM.  Directions are provided on our "FAQs" page.  However, there are exceptions from time-to-time.  For example, we seldom meet in November and December due to the holidays and we sometimes skip our July meeting so we can meet at Das Awkscht Fescht during the 1st week of August.  If in doubt, use our "Contact LVCC" page to ask about our next meeting.

Other Events.  The following is a list of cruises, car shows and other events of interest to Corvair owners in and around the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania.  For additional information on any of these events, check the latest issue of LVCC's "The Fifth Wheel" newsletter or send an email to LVCC's Newslettter Editor, Allan Lacki at redbat01@verizon.net
