Southern Tier Classic Chevy Club invites new members to join

The Southern Tier Class-ic Chevy Club formed in September 1991 with members from Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties and later included Warren and Erie counties, Pa. The club originally focused on 1955, ’56 and ’57 Chevy cars and trucks, but has expanded its membership to include later years and makes.

Although some of the cars have been professionally restored, many are re-stored completely by their owners.

The club has maintained an affiliation with worthy causes or foundations geared toward health issues for sick or injured children. For many years now, the club has donated to Shriner’s Hospital in Erie, Pa., and most recently added St. Susan’s Soup Kitchen in Jamestown.

Anyone interested in becoming a part of the club or wanting more information can join members at 7:30 p.m. the second Tues-day of each month at the Celoron American Legion.
