Orrington church offers up annual car show

ORRINGTON Members of the East Orrington Congregational Church are used to praying and these days their prayers are for blue skies and sunshine for the church's upcoming annual charity car show. This is the sixth year the church on Johnson Mill Road has held a benefit car show to raise funds for heating assistance for those in need.

'The community gets every cent we raise and every little bit helps,' said George Smith, churchgoer and car show organizer. 'The money usually lasts through one season, but it all depends on how bad the winter is and the price of oil.'

Last year the car show raised a little over $12,000. This year organizers are hoping to bring in $14,000.

'George has always been a car enthusiast. He's the one who brought the idea [of a car show] up to the men's group at church and we said, Let's do it,'' explained Reverend Carl Schreiber. 'Car shows are pretty popular and people who sponsor car shows like the idea of having it a charity event rather than a business event.'

Old Corvettes, Bel Airs, Mustangs and other classics will pack the church's parking lot for the show on Saturday, August 13. Trophies will be awarded to the top 20 vehicles, all of which will be selected by the registered participants. There will also be trophies given out to the overall Best of Show and Pastor's Award.

'It's just something you can have fun at and raise money at the same time,' said Smith.

There will also be a live auction, music and concessions on site and a 50/50 drawing.

'Every once in a while you come across someone who is a true hero,' said Rev. Schreiber. 'It's unfathomable how many hours George puts into this project. We have all these heroes in the world and he should be considered a hero for those who need help.'

Registration is $5 per vehicle and will take place 8-11 a.m. on August 13. Gates open to the public at 9 a.m.
