The Windham Township Volunteer Fire Company had their annual car show fundraiser at the field near the New York and Pennsylvania state line on Route 187 on Sunday, July 28. David and Barb Moore graciously let the fire company use their property each year.
There was a Chicken BBQ, fresh sweet corn, funnel cakes, and ice cream. Emily’s Weiner Wagon came along with other craft and flea market vendors. New Bedrock t-shirts were available to purchase. A tent had games for children to enjoy all day. DJ Bette Weaver provided music.
The event welcomed a surprise visit from Fred Flintstone, Tom Rogers, who had his photo taken in the Flintmobile with any children who wished.
The Top 30 awards were picked by the car participants. This years’ Bedrock favorite was a 35 Dodge 1 ½ ton stake body truck owned by Howard Wilson. The muffler contest was won by Jim Alexander with a 78 Dodge Magnum.
A total of 139 cars registered to enjoy the day. All vehicles, makes/models and years registered plus tractors and cycles.
Gas pump raffle tickets were on sale for a restored model 766 Bennett gas pump. Tickets are available until Oct. 20, 2019 for $10 each. Contact Doug’s Hot Rod Shop at (570) 247-8082 or any Windham Township Volunteer Fire Company member for tickets.
Thank you to the 50/50 winner Norm Catlin for donating his winning back to the fire company.
The Greater Valley Ambulance was there for any emergencies and had signups for CPR classes.
Following the car show awards, they had the drawing for the Chinese auction items. Thank you to all the people who donated items.
