“Star City Corvettes” derives its name from the legend that, shortly after William Digby founded the town of Lafayette, Indiana, Lafayette became the principle trade city on the Wabash River. At this time Lafayette was “The West” and since Cincinnati, Ohio was known as the “Queen City of the West” Lafayette became known as the “Star City of the West”. The name remained associated with Lafayette, Indiana through the early 1970’s.
“Star City Corvettes” is a non-profit organization whose primary purposes are to plan events, trips and activities for members and their families. Proceeds from club activities are donated to local charities.
Corvette owners over 21 or anyone who has ever been a member of the National Council of Corvette Clubs may submit an application for membership to “Star City Corvettes”.
Our activities include overnight and day trips, parades and cruise-ins. Our overnight trips were to various destinations: Vettes on the Rockies, Route 66, Black Hills Corvette Classic, National Corvette Museum Caravan 14 and may more day trips.
Our club meets the first and third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. for our business meeting and social respectively. Many other social events are planned throughout the year.
