Sunburst Corvette Club Board Members
Dee Rosendahl - Interim President
Connie Borucki - Vice President
My husband Ken and I joined Sunburst during the summer of 2021 in the hopes of meeting other Corvette enthusiasts and making new friends. Our hopes have been more than realized as everyone in the club has been so kind and welcoming. We have already experienced so many wonderful adventures and have made friendships that I’m certain will last a lifetime. We truly feel blessed!
We have had 4 Corvettes, purchasing our first one in 2003, and currently own a 2015 Crystal Red Tint Coat C7. I have served as the apparel chairperson this past year, volunteered at the annual car show, and was honored to participate as a member of the 45th Anniversary Planning Committee, all of which have afforded me the opportunity to meet many members. I am looking forward to this new challenge, the year ahead, new experiences and many more adventures.
Leo Casanas - Treasurer
The Corvette enthusiast bug bit me in 1986 when I purchased my first Corvette, a 1981 Red on Red Stingray. My wife Doria and I knew of the Sunburst Corvette Club and joined in 2021 hoping to meet and get to know other Corvette owners. Since joining Sunburst, we have come to learn that members are a generous and hardworking group that support local charities through fund raising. Whether the event is autocross, car shows, planned road trips or flash drives, the Sunburst Corvette Club members are extremely welcoming and we are glad to be part of the group.
Sue Thorson - Secretary
My husband Lee and I have had seven Corvettes since 1992, and we have taken Museum Delivery with four of them. Our current one is a 2017 Blade Silver Grand Sport. We love to do road rallies in the Vette and had participated in NCCC rallies as members at large for several years. Since Sunburst is a friendly and welcoming club that hosts NCCC rallies, we joined the Club in 2013. We’ve been Midwest Region rallye champion driver and navigator twice.
Over the years, Lee and I have been on the 40th Anniversary Committee, sponsored weekend road trips and day trips, hosted road rallies, and counted ballots for the Club’s car shows. I have also been on the Holiday Party Committee for several years. We have enjoyed many Club road trips, flash drives (almost always to restaurants), parades, and parties.
With Sunburst, you will make lifelong friends and enjoy your Corvette.
Mike Stevens - Governor
I retired from full time employment in 2002 and that's when I got my first Corvette, a 1980 black coupe. After buying that car, Pat and I began searching for a Corvette Club and found the Sunburst suited us best. We are on our fourth Corvette now, a 2017 Watkins Gray Grand Sport Coupe. The friends we've made and the memories associated with all of the the Club's activities will be remembered for a lifetime!
Since joining Sunburst in 2003, I've served as historian, membership chairperson, newsletter editor, car show co-chairman, rallye-master and president for four years. Pat and I have really enjoyed showing our cars, and in 2015, we were both Midwest Regional Car Show Champions. I've had a ball autocrossing and driving my cars at track days. But most of all, both of us have enjoyed the road trips, flash drives, and the many events that draw Sunburst members together to enjoy our cars and each other.
I encourage every member to join in the fun. Try a rallye. Attend a cruise night with the club. Join us on a flash drive to a favorite restaurant and just get involved. Get the most out of your Corvette ownership by sharing time and ideas with your fellow Vette owners at Sunburst.
