Folks from Salem and surrounding areas turned out for a great time at the Midwest Blue Oval Ford Club all makes car show around the Courthouse Square on September 12. This was a great opportunity for people to display their favorite rods and restorations, support local Salem businesses, let the kids have fun with the games and activities, and listen to live music. All funds raised during the car show were donated by the Club back to the Salem community. Organizations receiving donations from the Club include the Salem High School Band Parents ($1000.00), and the school backpack program ($500.00) In addition to the car show, a ‘60’s style cruise was held Saturday evening with the local radio station playing hits from the ‘60’s on vinyl. Entry into the cruise was a food donation for the local food bank. A pickup load of food was donated at the end of the event. Sunday included a cruise to Maramec Springs Park where participants were treated to food and drinks sponsored by a local grocery chain. Plans are already underway for an even bigger all makes car show next year. Details will be forthcoming. We look forward to seeing you next summer for a good time in supporting the Salem community.

Pictures will be posted here soon.
