On Thursday afternoon, the National Corvette Museum marked the one year anniversary of the SkyDome Sinkhole with a press conference that culminated in the official return of the 2009 Corvette “Blue Devil” ZR1 to the display floor.

The Museum considers the one-year anniversary to be a celebration of sorts for the all the hard work and determination from the staff of the museum, the construction workers that put in long hours during the recovery and repairs, as well as the Museum members who stepped up their support during this difficult year.

The staff at the Museum, led by Executive Director Wendell Strode, has often been described as taking a bad situation and turning it into a positive outcome. The phrase “turning lemons into lemonade” has been used to describe the last year which saw record visitor numbers and new memberships despite the fact there was a large sinkhole in the SkyDome. So it was no surprise that the during the commemoration, glasses of lemonade were passed around to those in attendance.
