RACINE — The 13th annual Cruisin’ Saturday Night Car Show was held in conjunction with Racine’s Party in the Park on Saturday, Sept. 9 at Racine’s Star Mill Park.
Over 70 vehicles were registered for the show, with the proceeds funding scholarships for students from all three Meigs County high schools for the 2017-2018 school year. In the spring, six $1,000 scholarships will be awarded. Applications will be available with the guidance counselor at each school before Jan. 1, 2018.
Melody Bailey, coordinator for the car show, thanked the many sponsors who provided trophies for each category and raffle items, as well as the many people who volunteered their time and resources to make this year’s car show a resounding success.
