Car Show Success
Sadly our Car Show Chairman, Keith Wilson, passed away before he was able to finish the work needed for the show. He did, however, complete 90% of the task.
This year we were blessed with blue skies and sunshine. Then the fantastic and loyal crew headed up by Chris, Jan, and Austin Fodell and I pulled together, along with many others to make this 30 year event happen. Other crew members were Kathy Wilson, Mike Wilson, Patti Thompson, Daniel and Joey Crosby, Terry Taylor, Sharon Saunders, Al Cabadas, Alex LaFountain, the Huron Valley Rodders, Art & Carol Bonkoski, and Rich Harrison.
A special thanks to Lori Verbrugge of Huron Valley State Bank for taking care of the financial part of the show. Also, special thanks to our photographers, Jessica Gazley and Jane Purslow for their time and talent, and to the many volunteers who helped count ballots.
We want to give thanks to pastor, Bryant Anderson, of Milford Presbyterian Church for the use of the church to stuff goody bags and to count ballots the day of the show. He also gave us his “Pastor’s Pick” award for his favorite car in the show.
Thanks to our Chief of police, Tom Lindberg, for the ever popular, “Fuzz Buster” award. Also, to the Village of Milford and the Milford Business Association.
We are very fortunate to have such great sponsors that support our community. This year’s major sponsors: LaFontaine Automotive Group, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Bakers of Milford, M1Concourse, Pratt & Miller Engineering, Ford Performance (Ford Motor Company), HVSB, Horse Blanket Headquarters, Downtown Garage, Main Street Art, GVC Painting, Tim Horton’s and Smoke Street, 2 Moms & a Mop.
We had a record year for participants who came out from Milford and the surrounding communities as far away as Monroe, Bay City and Cheboygan. There were first time winners and first time participants that want to come back next year to our beautiful village of Milford to shop and eat at our famous restaurants. Now, the best part of all is that we had the most successful and largest show in the history of the Milford Car Show with 319 of the most beautiful cars on display.
My heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you who worked so hard to make this wonderful car show the best it’s ever been.
