Subj: Letter of Appreciation
This year Vette Camp was fantastic and above all the staff was outstanding in every respect. You are cognizant that I was the Duty Photographer of Vette Camp, which gave me the opportunity to observe all facets of camp in innate detail.
Kellie did a superb job of organizing the camp and making sure that all of the events were on schedule and went as planned. Vette Camp provided such a wonderful variety of activities the children were never bored or showed a lack of interest. There were a few scheduling issues and Kellie handled those with ease. The camp attendees never noticed the changes as everything ran smoothly throughout the week.
Katie did a great job marketing the camp and helping us arrange to attend. Debbie made sure that Kellie had plenty of personnel support throughout the camp. I sent Katie 1500+ photos of Vette Camp, covering all aspects.
I observed how well the staff got along and how willingly they supported each other, presenting a true team effort on all fronts. When one asked for support, they were acknowledged with enthusiasm and frequently staff members would ask if support was needed. Each NCM employee was most pleasant, greeted everyone with a smile, and helped every way possible.
It is important to note the Vette Camp staff interfaced exceptionally well, making every camper feel they were important. The primary staff members handling Vette Camp that I was acquainted with was Kellie, Debbie, Katie, Tyler, Shelley and Becky. In addition, Stephanie, Adam, Teresa, Karen, Eric (Corvette Plant) and Roc were very supportive. All of these people made a major contribution to the success of Vette Camp. In summary, each staff member exhibited a genuine interest in each camper, which was very positive and well received.
Vette Camp is one of the most import events of the Corvette Museum. It is the place where future Corvette owners are born. When I was 10 years old, my father took me to an SCCA race. The couple was racing a 1955 Corvette. The husband was the driver and the wife the crew chief. The crew chief let me sit in the Corvette and wipe the steering wheel. This experience was the genesis for me to own a Corvette. The moral of the story is that I have owned a Corvette since I was 25.
Again, Vette Camp was a wonderful experience for both Parker and I and we are really looking forward to attending next year. Next year, my second grandson, Cole will be old enough to attend. Both Parker and Cole are already talking about next year.
You can be most proud of your employees they did a great job!
