Then it’s off to New Brunswick and parts westward. We wish them bon voyage on their 68-day trip from coast to coast!
It was a Great day! The weather was cool but bright, and the turnout excellent. Many classic cars to drool over, and a monster lawnmower to boggle at! Make a Wish Foundation raised over $1200, and an enthusiastic crowd contributed to and benefited from the bucket draw. Once again, our sincere thanks to all our sponsors and to all our willing volunteers who planned and executed a picture-perfect event. None of this would have happened without all your help!
Our rain-or-shine spring cruise is scheduled for Sunday May 22. Starting in Bridgewater at 9am, our route will take in The Hollow Log Cafe in Caledonia, a stop in Bear Lake, and some sight-seeing in Annapolis before we land at The Station restaurant in Bridgetown for lunch.
Heading homeward, we will travel via Middleton with an optional stop at The Turkey Burger for ice cream.
Sounds delicious! Let us know if you’re planning to join us.
We are raffling this “basket” of goodies, worth over $400, for $2/ticket or $5/3 tickets. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Dairy Queen in Bridgewater on the evening of December 17th.Contact us or drop in at DQ any Tuesday evening if you’d like to get in on the action.
Update: The draw was held at the Bridgewater DQ on December 17th and a winner was announced. DQ very kiindly provided an ice cream cake for the CC members and those taking part in the draw. Thanks to all who bought tickets and helped to support our club activities!
A beautiful late summer day greeted us for our trip to the Acadian Village in West Pubnico. It is a longish (2 hour) drive from Bridgewater, but well worth the effort for the dozen or so cars that joined in. Normally the Village is closed on Saturdays but they made an exception in our case and even had their cafe make up some excellent sandwiches and cookies for lunch eaten outside at their picnic tables. Most of us took the opportunity to explore the grounds, although sadly there were no guides or docents available to let us into the buildings.
A few local vintage vehicles joined us for the afternoon and a number of visitors came to admire the classic autos on display. There is talk of another visit next year.
It seemed like everyone and their dog showed up for a small but enthusiastic meet and show-off at Brindle Boston today. There were lots of really classic cars to ooh and aah over, and the barbecue was left in the capable hands of the Blockhouse Volunteer Fire Department who did a fine job of controlling the fire. Temperature and humidity were comfortably seasonal and there didn’t seem to be a lot of bugs.
Unexpectedly this fine little Fiat showed up and stole many hearts, but there were a lot more well-loved vehicles on show too.
July 20th marked the first gathering of the club’s cars for the better part of two years! It was a beautiful evening, and 25 cars showed up at the Fisherman’s Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg for the entertainment of the patients and carers. Hopefully there will be more such events to come later in the summer – covid permitting, of course.
