Car Show Breaks Records

The Car Show Committee and volunteers pulled off the best Car Show we’ve ever had, with 88 registered vehicles! The number of vendors and donors also reached an all-time high of 55. They generously provided cash donations, door prizes and/or Silent Auction items. And, we raised a record amount – nearly $5,000 after our expenses! This year’s proceeds will go to Badger Honor Flight.

We were blessed with a gorgeous day. It rained at the very end of the event but it didn’t dampen our spirits or the success of the event.

The Committee and volunteers did an outstanding job. Special thanks to Committee members Sherri Hefty, Mike Reynolds, John Arnold, Amy Slaney, Bob Hanson, Paul Elver and Phillip Kingslein. Thank you to Phillip for keeping the crowd well-fed with his great culinary skills, Mary Arnold for promotion on social media, Gary Bakken for his excellent photography and Susie Frankland for being a fantastic DJ and performer. Vicar Jim Ranney and Gracie Reynolds also deserve appreciation for their judging and awarding of the Pastor’s Choice Award!

We could never have achieved these results without everyone who volunteered, the vendors, donors and participants. A sincere Thank You to all of you on the wildly successful, record-breaking event!
