The Cedar Springs Historical Museum held their annual car show at Morley Park in Cedar Springs last Saturday, July 30, and brought in some much-needed funds for programs and operations.
About 100 cars entered the show, and this year the show chose a top 20 instead of choosing winners by category. Best of show was Sam McComber, with his yellow flatbed truck.
The restored 1930 mail truck was a big hit, and many people went inside the trailer to see a mini-museum of mail items, including a bike a mail person would’ve ridden. The mail truck and trailer was brought by Mike Schragg of Marshall, Michigan.
The Keystone Kops also made an appearance with their antique fire truck.
The Mark Wellman family manned a food wagon for the event, and Pat and Roseanne Patin were DJs.
According to Sharon Jett, the museum made almost $3,000 from the fundraiser. “This money helps support the museum and other programs we have so that we don’t always have to charge families,” Jett explained.
She said that aside from the entry fee, they were very grateful to member D. White, who got many people and businesses to help sponsor the car show. “We are very grateful for his efforts. Without his fantastic effort we would not have had such a good event,” explained Jett.
Coming up next—the museum has set a tentative date of Saturday, September 17, for the grand opening of the new addition. They are working on the details of fun-filled day. Watch the Post for more information as it becomes available.
