Letter: Car show raised money for causes
On behalf of the 200 members of the Prescott Antique Auto Club, I would like to extend a gracious and well deserved "thank you" to the more than 4,000 visitors to our 40th annual Car Show, Parts Exchange and Old Engine Fire-up that was Aug. 2 and 3 at beautiful Watson Lake Park. We have always been well supported by the City of Prescott Parks and Recreation Department, our mayor and county supervisor, the Tri-City area and all of our visitors from neighboring states.
This year was our best show ever. We had good weather on both days except for some rain in the late afternoon on Saturday. We intend to use our proceeds to continue our Christmas gift- giving program to our military veterans, a growing scholarship program to local area students, bringing mini-car shows to local area assisted living centers and lastly in our restoration, maintenance, storage and display of Prescott's #1 1931 Seagraves Ladder Fire Truck.
The Prescott Antique Auto Club has been a proud member of Prescott since our incorporation in 1970 and we intend to continue our premier automotive event every first weekend of August well into the future.
See you next year at Watson Lake Park.
Prescott Antique Auto Club President
