Support event sponsors
Although the forecast was against us, we had 200 registered participants at Cars on the Square showing their vehicles.
The vehicles on display were driven to the Square, and I can't say enough how much I appreciate their participation knowing their vehicles were going to get wet.
The good news, it was overcast most of the morning with only one downpour that lasted a short time. The spectators were out and about, which was great to see.
I want to thank our sponsors, who I'm listing below. It is long, but you need to understand that these businesses and groups are the folks that make it the event it is today. Please support them and let them know how much you appreciate the behind the scenes support they provide.
Cut this list out and carry it with you. When you go shopping or out to eat, give the list a look. This can be your way to thank them personally.
