Dé·jà vu...April showers...show must go on...

At least this year it was warm(er). However, we had a great turn out and we want to thank everyone that brought their cars to the show! Also a big applause to Jim Matheny, for putting the show on.

This year, due to the dam construction at the lake, the event was moved. The Buckeye Lake KOA stepped up and provided a new location. The Society is SO grateful. Thank you Mike & Shirley Groseclose.

Rain, shine, warm or cold our fantastic Volunteers make the show happen and this year was no exception. A big thanks goes out to: Jim Matheny, Donna Braig, Robin Braig, Sonny Roelle, Kaye Hartman, Ben & Katrina Carpenter, Bill & Mary Muryn, Bob and Connie Shaw, Al Alder, John Hoermle, Jim Layton, Luann Cooperrider, Brenda Bellis, Pat Miller, Mike Cassidy, Bob Combs, Rachel Powell and Michael Graham.

Of course, we also couldn’t do it without our generous sponsors. Thanks so much for your continued support.
