I should probably begin this post with a small personal message and offer my sincerest apologies for not writing about this exciting event sooner! As most of you in the club know, I’ve packed up and moved to Alabama where I’ll be studying for my master’s degree, so the past few months have been rather hectic. Not to worry, though! I haven’t forgotten about my beloved Gettysburg Region. So, here’s a little note reminding everyone who was there what a fantastic time we had at our annual show back in June. For those of you who couldn’t make it, you missed out, but here’s a taste of what to expect next year…
Our annual car show and flea market was held once again at Latimore Valley Fairgrounds on June 13th. What a lovely day, too. Much better than last year (it had rained so hard the day before, we thought we’d have to show boats instead of cars) and as a result, we had a great turnout!
The feature class this year was mid and rear engine vehicles, which helped bring out a wide variety of unique classics. Of course, outside of that intriguing class, we got to see all sorts of antiques, from motorcycles to milk trucks.
A lot of people in the GRAACA pulled together and volunteered their services to help put this on. Even Don Barlup, now president of the whole AACA, lent a hand in the kitchen. Around here, he’s just part of the crew.
Also at the show was the York Springs Lions Club serving fries and delicious sundaes. And EMMR offered their services as throughout the day a free shuttle ran from the fairgrounds to the museum. They even put on display some of the autos in their collection for all to see!
So, many thanks are due to all who helped make this year a success! For more pictures of our volunteers, sponsors, vendors, and attendees, please visit our Facebook page and look under the “Photos” tab for a full album. See you there next year!
