Rust Or Shine Car Show And Music Festival

Rust Or Shine Car Show And Music Festival

On September 4th the Veterans Memorial Museum hosted its first annual car show fundraiser. This past year we stepped out of our comfort zone and went with the idea to have a car show to promote the museum and raise some funds for the Museum. We chose the Labor Day weekend as it was not in conflict with many of the other shows that run throughout the summer months. Throughout the summer we went to car shows and handed out flyers encouraging folks to come to the show. There was a bit of trepidation as we did not know if this would fall on its face with only a handful of cars or perhaps we might just reach a goal of having 75 cars show up. It was quite a surprise when by 8:30 am we had run out of the 75 dash plaques for the participants! By 10 am we had nearly 130 cars! Throughout the day we counted nearly 1000 visitors to the car show and the Museum! The success of the event was well beyond our expectations. In addition to the cars, the raffles and trophies we also had a small music festival with three bluegrass bands providing the entertainment. It was great fun and music for all! We wish to thank the Washington Bluegrass Association for providing the music. Britco Racing Engines of Centralia for providing the trophies. We also want to thank our raffle prize sponsors: Olympic Club of Centralia for two overnight package stays, Barry’s Quality Engines of Chehalis for two Driven oil changes, Airgas of Chehalis for welding supplies, O’Reilys Auto Parts for two car wash kits, Jeremys Farm to Table of Chehalis for gift certificate and The Muffler Man of Centralia for the participant raffle to win a custom exhaust system. We also want to thank John Andrews, Lois Brown, Dale Ingle, Rob Holt, Darrell Holt, Jenni Duncan, Ruben Duncan, Amber Roal, Jessica Roal, Max Fluky, Anni Dickenson, Del Droddy, Christie Wood, and Mary Astrid for their help during the event. The trophies were awarded to these individuals Best of Show went to Duane Miller
