The Dragin’ Angels Car Club celebrated its 60th anniversary on Sunday, June 11 at the Fayette County Fairgrounds. The community was invited to visit and look at the many different old cars, trucks and vehicles, and enjoy a hamburger or hot dog.
The club is centered on community programs and designed to donate scholarships for the Fayette County youth. This year scholarship awards were presented to the following youth: Timothy Hunter Moore, Justin Jones, Victoria Jones, Liam Downing, Madison Knisley, Elizabeth Garren and Kyle Moore.
Following the scholarship awards and car show, the members visited the area nursing homes, giving the residents’ time to enjoy seeing the old cars, and reminisce about ones they owned.
The club also donates Thanksgiving dinners to those in need, make sure children at the homeless shelter have a nice Christmas, and donate to Shrine Burn Center and Hospice of Fayette County.
Several members of the club participate in a “60’s Happy Days” at the Washington Middle School, invited by Lisa Hesson. The boys and girls dress in 50s and 60s clothes. The students and club members enjoy this event. There is also an historical day in Greenfield where several of members take their cars for the elementary children to see.
Through the summer months, the club has several cruise-ins. The next one will be held at Auto Zone on July 8. The club is truly appreciative to the people who sponsor these events each year.
