August 29, 2017 - Appreciation Night / Food Drive Night

sponsored by CRUISIN' CLASSICS CAR CLUB Special thanks to 
all our club member volunteers


(sung to the music from The Four Seasons)

Oh, what a night!
Late in August, a classic car and truck
What a very special time for luck
As we remember, what a night!

Oh, what a night!
You know, we don't know every name
But every things the same
What a cruise-in, what a night!


210 vehicles!
Countless participants and visitors!

With Mother Nature playing tricks on Tuesday Nights
(and Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and Fridays, etc)
we had six rain outs which made for many selections for
Car of the Week winners.
Following are pictures of the winning vehicles:















Oh, what a night!
It was great we had a lot of light
Some mistakes but now it seems so right
What a cruise-in, what a night!

June was a TOTAL washout !!!!!

For the 5th week in a row, Mother Nature has played tricks - rain at 4:00, clear by 6:00!

Anyone donating will be given a ballot to enter a draw for a jacket compliments of Choko Authentic Apparel. This will be a busy night (hopefully) as we celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday with complimentary cupcakes and Tim Horton's coffee.  Join in the fun - wear RED & WHITE!

June 20, 2017 - Walk a Mile in Our Shoes.....

4 IN A ROW!

It rained off and on all day Tuesday - even when the sun was shining and the sky was blue!

The hardest decision this executive has to make is when to cancel a cruise-in!

We have to consider many things - such as the condition of the parking area.  The cars are not parked on pavement or even on the parking lot.  If it has rained all day, the grass is wet and car tires can make a rut - not fair to the church to ruin their grassy area.

We have to consider the disc jockey who drives to Port Perry with his sound equipment.  He is entitled to be paid and we have no way to recover the expense.

We need to consider our volunteer member hosts, many of whom live out of town.

Consequently, a decision has to be made at an early enough time frame to notify everyone.  The past two weeks it has been raining when we…
