First Chapter of The Illinois Region
We are the First
Chapter in the Illinois Region to be Chartered by AACA National. Des
Plaines Valley Chapter along with Fox Valley and Waukegan Chapters were
given their Charter on February 13, 1959. There were earlier
Chapters that were an active part of the Illinois Region but until that
point in time none had been approved by AACA National.
DVC has a small but active membership that centers
around our President Lee Nelson and our Treasure Nancy
Nelson. Together they have guided the Chapter through many Illinois
Region events, hosting the 2004 Illinois
Region Swap Meet at Crossroads Chevrolet and Buick. Members from all the Chapters of the Illinois
Region worked hard to make the Swap Meet very successful.
Before the Swap Meet in January we hosted the
Illinois Region Fall Tour to Kokomo, Indiana in October of 2003.
One of the Events we sponsor annually is our Fly-in
Breakfast which combines Old Planes and Old Cars. This year is
special due to the change of date to Mother's Day, May 13, 2012.
All Illinois Region Members and their cars are invited. See you
Fly-In Breakfast This Year
is May 13,
2012, Mother's Day.
