Car Club Celebrates 40 Years of Classics
The Prince Edward Auto Club celebrated Aug 8-10 as they presented their 40th Street Meet. Almost 200 cars were on display at the Club’s property in Ameliasburgh village, and on Friday 50 cars from before 1914 stopped at the grounds to spectators delight.
“We’re overwhelmed. It’s insane.” Club president Fred Morton said. He struggled to find words to describe the commitment of volunteers, the support from the community, and the excitement and enthusiasm shown for the 40th anniversary celebrations. Morton attributed the show’s longevity to the dedication of the volunteers who put the show together and make it run smoothly each year. Special events included a charity BBQ, fireworks and a street dance featuring The Reasons.
Morton also pointed out that the Street Meet is a non-profit event, with proceeds being turned back to the community. “We are a huge supporter of the food bank and the fire department,” he said. The club also helps out individuals and families in need.
