ORRINGTON - The East Orrington Congregational Church on the Johnson Mill Road has a large group of regulars and visitors that attend service each week. But this time of year, the church also attracts a large array of classic car owners. That's because for the third year in a row, the church is holding a classic car show to raise funds for heating assistance for its neighbors in need.

"I'm the one who came up with the idea of a car show," said George Smith, churchgoer and car show organizer. "One day I was watching the news and saw some people lost their lives due to a fire trying to heat their place unsafely. I just started to try and think of something I could do to help any way I could."

ORRINGTON - There was no church service at the East Orrington Congregational Church on Saturday but the parking lot was filled with vehicles just the same. That's because it was the church's second annual antique car show, a benefit that raises funds for heating oil for area families in need.

"The community gets every cent we raise," said George Smith, the car show organizer. "There's been a lot in the news about people losing their lives trying to heat their homes in unsafe ways, so we came up with a fundraiser for heating assistance."
