On a cloudy August 30th, we attempted to host our annual Appreciation Night Cruise-In. As the rain came pouring down, a decision was made to reschedule for September 6th. The next week it was hot and humid! Between the two nights, we saw a participation of 228 classic vehicles (pre '90).
As in previous years, the public was encouraged to donate non-perishable food, paper products and /or cash to Operation Scugog. Including our paper drive in June, we were able to utilize more than four pick-up trucks and collected $1,078.80 for the benefit of our local food bank. A sincere thank you, to all who contributed to Port Perry's local organization.
A very special thanks, to Emmanuel Community Church in Port Perry, for allowing us the use of their parking lot every Tuesday night, and to the church volunteers who provided a venue to purchase food and drinks. Between our hungry cruisers, an anonymous supporter and a donation from Cruisin' Classics Car Club there was a nice sum available for the benefit of the church's youth group.
And finally words cannot express how much we appreciate the generosity of our corporate and weekly sponsors, as well as all the classic cruiser participants. With your continued support, we look forward to the 2017 cruising season.
