The Cedar Springs Historical Society hosted its annual Summer Car Show on Saturday, July 26. It was a beautiful day to check out the 58 cars registered.  According to museum director Sharon Jett, cars were from as far away as New York State. Buck Jones, from Rockford, won the peer judged “Best of Show” award for his 1955 Chevy Bel-Air Sport Coup.

The Cedar Springs FFA sold coffee and donuts in the morning and helped the staff and participants. The group also had some of its delicious home made maple syrup for sale.

The Patin Sisters spun vinyl throughout the day as they provided entertainment and made announcements.

Master Wood Carver Dan Davis demonstrated his skills during the event and had a number of his carvings on hand. It is amazing what he can find hidden in a piece of wood.

Meijer Corporation had one of their vintage delivery trucks on display; similar to ones used in Cedar Springs when Hendrik Meijer opened his second store. Meijer served over 500 free hot dog meals to participants and visitors.
