The food bank, represented above by volunteer Kelly Eagan (far left), received a cheque for $1,000. Yhe Lions, represented by Nick Giannopoulous (centre), received $3,000 and the TBDCC, represented by president, Wendy Gabrek, received $3,000. More than 350 cars, and 800 spectators took part in this year’s show, with 16 trophy classes awarded, including the new ‘Kidz Power Wheels’ category, plus three special classes – Mayor’s Choice, People’s Choice and Farthest Distance.
“We had a great year, and we’re pleased that all of the proceeds from the Show go back into the community,” said Witherspoon.
As Thanksgiving approaches, the community is reminded that the food bank could use some extra support to restock the shelves after the summer holidays. Nut-free school snacks, and canned proteins, as well as cash donations are always needed.
