Darrell “Pokie” Wildhaber and Dennis Hardesty came up with the idea to donate the trees to Mid America Motorworks and worked with both clubs to get it organized. The trees were planted near the Funfest Sales and Registration Building north of the Corporate Building.
John Mullane, President of the Looking Glass Corvette Club, said “Of all the places we go, Eureka Springs, Veterans Parkway in Bloomington, the Springfield Fairgrounds for Bloomington Gold, the place where the best memories are made is in the middle of a cornfield at Corvette Funfest. Our donation of this tree is to commemorate the memories made at Mid America Motorworks Corvette Funfest.”
Shirley and Rick Berving were in attendance representing the Original Corvette Club of St. Louis. “We would like to give thanks from the bottom of our hearts for all of the small things that Mike Yager, Mid America Motorworks, and Corvette Funfest do for us and the Corvette hobby.”
