We could not have asked for a more beautiful day, although it was pretty darned hot for September! In twenty-two years, we have only had to use the raindate twice - in 1995 and in 2002.  By 7:00 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 368 cars and trucks on the show field!  We know that a lot of vehicles never bothered to come down and get their number, and several cars showed up after registration closed, so we aren't sure exactly how many vehicles there were .



The day got off to a beautiful start when Miss Frederick 2014, Katelyn Millison, arrived and sang the National Anthem a cappella.  Katelyn then helped JR and Joanne selling 50/50 Raffle Tickets and having her picture taken lots of times!  Katelyn also donated a lovely picture she had painted for the auction. 

Butch is still counting the money we made selling t-shirts, the raffles, the auction, registration, spectator’s gate and donations. 

Special thanks to Golden Gears who donated $1,000, to Sugarloaf Mountain AACA who donated $500, and to individuals who made sizeable donations: Janice & Thomas Crone, Herb Rieger, Kingsley Edwards, Ray Booth and Mr. Stavely

The Alzheimers Association Greater Maryland Chapter folks were there and expressed their great 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.

A special shout out to Boy Scout Troop 460 from Mount Airy who came out again this year to help us with a lot of running around the parking lot, emptying trash cans, helping with parking, manning the Spectator Gate and at the Moon Bounce.  They were also selling sno-cones, which were welcome on such a hot day!  It was a long day for them, but they really liked the cars.  Hopefully they’ll be back next year again to help out!

The auction was a huge success.  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 guitar donated by Mark Naylor, beautiful quilts donated by Mary Jo Haczewski, a vintage sign from 75+80 Dragway donated by Ed Zimmerman, collectible die casts donated by Martin Lydard, neat bar signs donated by Elbe’s Beer & Wine, lots of gift certificates, car care items, banners (garage art!), collectibles, and lots more.  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, Dawn Z, Kingsley Edwards 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 John Roop and Roger Rothenhoefer (he’s got a 1949 Chevy Fleetline) our exceptional auctioneers this year!

Janet Stein and Martin Lydard and Cindy Morrison and more manned the Spectator’s Gate with a great group of scouts from Boy Scout Troop 460, and the take at the Spectator’s Gate was terrific – definitely worth standing out in the road with our hands out!! 


Congrats to Frank Baker who survived his third Alzheimers Show as President and did a great job and to Bev Baker who did a fantastic job her third time out with the official clipboard keeping everything running on time!  Even with all we had to get done that day, the show ended at 3:30 since the weather forecast was for afternoon storms – a great demonstration of Bev’s ability to keep us all on track!

Many thanks to John Chance who arranged with the Law Mall to let us cover the No Parking signs again.  I don’t know where we would have parked all those spectators!  And thanks to the Frederick County DPW for allowing us to use their parking lot.

Many thanks to Butch and Sissy for organizing all the vendor stuff!

Event Program by Sissy Riley was exceptional (as always!).

Megan and Melissa Deedy are working with Operation Welcome Home Maryland which is a partner of the USO.  Megan and Melissa volunteer to make & get others to write quick thank you notes to be given to the troops when they arrive at BWI from overseas.  The cards and notes will be put into a snack bag that the service member will receive while waiting for a connecting flight to their final destination here or elsewhere.  The girls set up a table at the show, and lots of people took a few moments to write a thank you to these brave young men and women who have given up so much for us.  

Thank you to all who worked to make the 22nd  Annual Alzheimer’s Show a huge success.  Thanks to those who came out to help set up, worked registration, collected from participants, parked cars, tallied votes, worked the auction, sold t-shirts, sold raffle tickets, sold 50/50 tickets, gave out door prizes, moved porta-pots (it was fun to watch, too!), worked the sound system, cleaned up the trash afterwards, and more!   

Thanks to our club members for all their hard work the day of the show, in advance preparations and in the followup. Special thanks to our Hardworking Non-Members JR & Joanne and Murl & Debbie and Pam & Billy and Bob Clubb & Kingsley Edwards.  You guys are great!  Without your help, we couldn’t have done it!

Thank you to MVA for letting us host our show at their location. 

Thank you to Robert Clubb Associates for sponsoring the trophies and awards.

Thank you to Frall Developers, Inc. for sponsoring the all-important porta-pots.

Thank you to all the sponsors for their generous donations to allow us to put on this show.

Thank you to Harmony Dental Lab of Mount Airy for sponsoring the Moon Bounce.

Thanks to the other clubs and organizations who came out to support us.

Thanks to Critical Power who donated the use of their generator.  We would have been totally lost without it!

Thanks to Eric Stonesifer and his business Triple Creek Landscaping who provided a lift which proved to be the solution to our continuing sound system issues.  By lifting the speakers high, they were much more audible.  Thank you!
