Corvettes do doughnuts at local police stations

If you think of sporty Corvettes producing doughnuts in police department parking lots, you might figure the result would be smoking tires, blinking police lights and traffic tickets.

But the York County Corvette Club had a different idea.

About 15 members delivered the doughnuts via Corvette to police departments in the county. Organizer Boyer said he hopes this first-time event will become a national event among clubs in the U.S. The local club delivered 90 dozen doughnuts to county law enforcement departments.

“We decided that the police are greatly underappreciated,” said club member Mike Boyer. “We thought the least we could do was start a program to thank the cops.”

Hence, the club’s first “Thank a Cop Day” was conceived.

About 15 club members delivered boxes of Maple Donuts via Corvette to every police station in York County — 22 locations worth — “just to say thanks for everything you do,” Boyer said.

“What we’re doing today is just tons and tons of fun,” club member Gary Miller of Springettsbury Township said before driving his bright yellow 2015 C7 Corvette to the York City Police Department.

He’s owned six Corvettes dating back to a 1963 model.

“They’re a lot of fun,” he said, adding that it’s sharing “the Corvette experience” with club members that enriches the venture.

Boyer said he hopes the Thank a Cop Day idea will go nationwide with other Corvette Clubs following suit.

“We realize (police) go to work every morning,” Boyer said, “and they don’t know if they’re coming back.”
