Like hot rods? So do two of our officers, Santos Rodriguez and Dan Mead. Just ask them - they'd be happy to talk to you about their 1972 Ford Maverick and 1999 Chevy C5 Corvette.
To further their passion, for the third consecutive year, the two have teamed up with Sears Auto Center and BVG Motorsports to host monthly car shows during the summer - Motors on Milwaukee Cruise Night. The shows will run one evening a month from May to August.
The shows also benefit a couple great causes - homeless veterans and a local food pantry.
Participants are asked to bring a new or gently used coat that will be given to the Midwest Veterans Closet. If you don't have any gently used coats laying around, you are welcome to bring some canned goods and we will gladly make sure that they get to the Vernon Township Food Pantry.
Here's the 2017 car show schedule:
Dates: Wednesday, May 24 Wednesday, June28 Wednesday, July 26 Wednesday, August 23 Time: 6:00 pm - 9:00 p.m.
Hawthorn Mall Parking Lot - Lower Level east of Sears (along Rt. 21)
So show off your hot rod, performance import, classic, exotic or just plain cool car - or come see what others have to show off! And don't forget to bring a gently used coat and/or some canned goods. There will be collection boxes for any donations.
