Plateau Corvette Club members on Sunday April 12 took a tour of the Dogwood trails in Knoxville TN. They drove through the Sequoyah Hills and Lakemoor Hills neighborhoods. The Sequoyah Hills Dogwood Trail, which begins and ends on Cherokee Boulevard was named for the Indians who were Knoxville’s original “first settlers,” and Knoxville’s first Dogwood Trail opened here in 1955. The Lakemoor Hills [Loudon Lake] Dogwood Trail, which begins in a high wooded area where native white dogwood trees abound, and wild redbuds spread pink parasols above the garden plantings. The mall plantings include azaleas (white and dark red), and a gigantic American holly, pink is the preferred color for lawn plantings with redbud, flowering crabapple, and Japanese cherry trees abounding. They then stopped for lunch at The Lakeside Tavern on the River in Knoxville. The weather was great with no rain in sight.
On February 14 Plateau Corvette club members had their Valentines Day Drive and Dine at Ye Olde Steak House located in Knoxville, TN. Driving I-40 East to South 441 they enjoyed the roadside views of the cold winter landscape. We are hoping that spring will be here soon so we can enjoy our Corvettes in better weather!
On December 19, 2014 the Plateau Corvette Club treasurer and club secretary made a Christmas donation, with funds collected from club members, to the Volunteer Energy Cooperative Project Deserve, which assists the elderly, handicapped, low-income, and unemployed with their electric bills in emergency situations.
