Cars, Trucks and Bikes Raise Money For Firefighters

Local News

The sun was gleaming off the hoods of over 100 cars and trucks this afternoon behind Sam Hatfield Stadium.

The 16th Annual Duncan Falls Car, Truck and Bike Show helped raise funds for the Wayne Township Fire Department

“This is a fundraising event for the fire department and helps raise money to buy equipment, such as, helmets and gloves and small tools, rescue gear that sort of thing,” tells Fire Chief Don Alexander of the Wayne Township Duncan Falls Fire Department.

Last year’s car show raised around $2,000 for the fire department. The cars ranged from 2004 models all the way back to the early 1900s cars. Some car enthusiasts even traveled over 100 miles to have their cars in the show. Don Small traveled from Corning Ohio to show his ’71 Chevelle SS, which took him three years to build. He says it takes a lot of work to get ready for a show.

“Well you have to make sure it is clean inside and out. Do a lot of detailing, clean the engine, wash it, wax it and make sure underneath the fenders and everything is clean. So it takes a lot of work,” says Small.

The Wayne Township Fire Department says they are thankful to everyone who attended the Car, Truck and Bike show today.
