Prescott Vette Sette - a brief history
Dawn Wassem.The Prescott Vette Sette Corvette Club (PVS) was the brainchild of JoAnn Waddell and Mary Turner.
JoAnn owned a '95 Coupe and Mary owned a '98 Coupe, and in September of 2000 they decided the area needed a club for like-minded drivers.
To be sanctioned by the National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) required a minimum of twelve members, so they recruited their spouses and an additional dozen folks to come up with a crew. The original founding members were:
JoAnn & John Waddell
Mary & Scott Turner
Laura & Larry Greseth
Alfie & Butch Katheder
Bill & Mitzi Johnston
Cliff & Nancy Pollay
They were joined the following month by Ed & Lorraine Elfenbein and Nancy Camrud.
The first officers of the club served two year terms: JoAnn Waddell as President, Mary Turner as Vice-President, Laura Greseth as Secretary, and Alfie Katheder as Treasurer. The club started a newsletter in 2001 with Nancy Camrud as Editor and Chief.
