The family of Jackie Leone

Independent Editor,

On Saturday, Sept. 23 the Shiawassee Corvette Club held the 3rd Annual Jackie Leone Memorial Car Show and Rally at Graff Chevrolet, Durand. We had a great showing on a beautiful day.

A special thanks goes out to Graff Chevrolet Durand for hosting the car show, and to Nick’s Hometown Grill in Durand for accommodating the group after the rally. Special thanks to our sponsors: Champion Auto Sales, Maximum Towing & Recovery, MS Design, Shiawassee Corvette Club, Graff Chevrolet, The Independent Newsgroup, The Corunna Connection, Brooks Innovative Graphics, Shepard’s Indoor Speedway, Recreation Warehouse, King’s Auto Detailing, RH Meihl’s & Associates, Timlick’s Auto & Truck Repair, and Smoker’s Jigs. Also, thank you to SAGElink Credit Union, The Curwood Festival, and O’Reilly Auto Parts for your donations.

Thank you so much to everyone. Your donations and contributions will enable us to continue to award a scholarship to an Owosso or Corunna graduate who is pursuing a career in journalism or English. Our deepest appreciations to all of you who have helped us turn this dream into a reality.

In 2017, we were honored to be able to award a scholarship to a very deserving Owosso High School graduate, Patrick Butcher, who is majoring in journalism.
