We could not have asked for a more beautiful day! In twenty years, we have only had to use the raindate twice - in 1995 and in 2002. The weather was perfect for a car show, and by 7:30 the cars and trucks started rolling in for a show that was supposed to start at 10:00! Wow. By the end of the day, we had more than 382 cars and trucks on the show field!
Special thanks to JR and Joanne Rosenberger and Aspen Hill Shell who donated $2,114.55, Golden Gears who donated $1,000, to Pat Kelly who donated $2,000, to Sugarloaf Mountain AACA who donated $500, to Tom & Chris Crone who donated $500 in memory of Chris’s mom who recently passed away due to Alzheimers, to William Hipkins who donated $500 and
to Kingsley Edwards who donated $250 and to Cheryl Gendron for her donation.
The Alzheimers Association Greater Maryland Chapter presented us with a very nice plaque of appreciation for all the club has done in raising much needed funds for their local needs. Due to the money Heart of Maryland Classic Chevy Club members have raised, they are able to provide services that would otherwise need to be cut due to lack of funding.
The biggest shock came when Scott Morrison presented us with a sizeable donation from the estate of a gentleman who specified that his money be given to a charity which helped older people. The $200,000 check will help the Alzheimers Association Greater Maryland Chapter help a lot of families affected by Alzheimers in our area. (yes, the number of zeros is correct - $200,000!).
A special shout out to Boy Scout Troop 460 from Mount Airy who came out this year to help us with a lot of running around the parking lot, emptying trash cans, helping with parking and at the Moon Bounce. It was a long day for them, but they really liked the cars. Hopefully they’ll be back next year again to help out!
We had more vendors than ever before, and everyone seemed to enjoy doing some browsing and shopping. Many thanks to Butch and Sissy for organizing all the vendor stuff and to Jim Riggs for helping Butch mark out the spaces in advance.
The auction was a huge success. It lasted well over 2 hours - several participants in the show actually showed up with some neat contributions to the auction. Some of the highlights of the auction were the Estate Planning donated by Scott A. Morrison, a hand painted custom mailbox donated by Mark Naylor (to see his designs, go to www.dentmansdesigns.com), gift certificates, car care items, banners (garage art!), 75 & 80 memorabilia, collectible dolls, and lots more.
There was a beautiful guitar donated in honor of Luie Nieves, a craftsman with golden hands who was an Alzheimer’s patient and passed away on September 6, 2010. You never know what’s going to show up at the auction. Many thanks to members who unpacked and displayed all the “stuff” and Peggy Kaplan, Marsha Z, Pam Cioffi, and Bob Clubb who served as our clerks.
Thanks to JR and Joanne Rosenberger for providing the great big top tent for lots of shade on a very sunny day! And of course thanks to Roger Rothenhoefer (he’s got a 1949 Chevy Fleetline) our exceptional auctioneer this year!
