Diane Vaughn to Retire at the end of the 2018 Season

In 1982, eight years after Bill and Chip Miller launched Carlisle Events and the first season after they purchased the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, Diane Vaughn joined the team. For the past 36 years she has been THE line of first impressions for the Miller families and their popular collector car events at Carlisle. Vaughn came to Carlisle with plenty of automotive background to her resume, having worked at the Harrisburg Chevrolet Zone Office. The Zone Office was the Detroit liaison for all the Chevrolet dealers in the central part of PA from northern to southern state boundaries. She worked in the Truck Marketing Department and then in the Business Management Department.

Diane first met Bill Miller while working at the Zone and they became instant friends. The rest, as they say, is history. Just two months after the Harrisburg Zone closed, she was offered a job at Carlisle and has been an integral part of the team ever since.

Fast forward to 2018 and it’s time to say goodbye to our beloved Diane. You’ve met her countless times at events, be it registering for a vending space, a car corral spot or registering to show your car, truck or motorcycle. From the various locations that have served as Vendor Services over the years to the main office, Diane has been a constant force behind the Millers and Carlisle Events.

Whether you have met Diane once or she’s just as much a part of your visits to Carlisle as the events themselves, be sure to join us at the stage on Saturday evening of Spring Carlisle. Not only will we be offering a vendor appreciation dinner, but we’ll also be honoring Diane and saying the first of what will be many goodbyes throughout the 2018 season. And when you see her this year, be sure to say hi and let her know what she’s meant to your Carlisle experience.

It’s hard to say goodbye, but we’ll do it to one of the best in Carlisle’s entire existence in 2018!
