The classic cars and vehicle enthusiasts came out and enjoyed the annual Cruise Night on Wed. the 16th at Tiverton Park Manor. Residents always get a big thrill seeing cars they grew up with along with some new ones. The ice cream cone stand was a great hit with a long lineup as well as the Kings Pearl BBQ stand deal on burgers, water and potato chips. Other highlights along with the cars were the miniature horses from Sunset Miniatures Farms owned by employee Terri and her husband Wayne Schell. The face painting, games and the stuffed animals were a big hit for the kids. Thanks to all the volunteers, staff, sponsors and participants for making it another bit success. See you next year.
McMann’s Garage in Underwood had a customer appreciation BBQ on Sat Aug. 12th to celebrate their 70 years serving the surrounding area. Well done Larry and staff.
