SUMMER & FALL POPULAR LOCAL CAR SHOWS & EVENTS YOU MAY CONSIDER ATTENDING

This is our request for participation in our August 21st parade by some of the proud owners of classic cars.  As the following explains, this is the 13th year of our event in Park Potomac, to benefit the school children of economically challenged Montgomery County families.  We hope to have 12 -15 classic cars to participate. There will also be Pom Pom girls, motorcycles, fire trucks and police cars. The parade begins at 12:00 and the route is three-quarters of a mile from the southern end, to the norther end of Park Potomac Ave in Potomac, MD. and lasts for about one hour. Following the parade, the main event takes place and your cars can be displayed on our pavilion area if you like. THE 13TH ANNUAL PARK POTOMAC ICE CREME SOCIAL FOR CHARITY While no one can be sure what post-pandemic “normal” looks like, one thing is certain: Poverty in Montgomery County continues to be a serious problem for many families in our community. For the past twelve years the Park Potomac community has partnered with Interfaith Works of Montgomery County to address the needs of the county’s less fortunate families. During that period, we have collected more than twelve thousand new backpacks and literally tens of thousands of items of school supplies so that children from low-income homes can go back to school in the Fall proud, excited, and ready to learn!Last year we had to modify our event to conform to the existing COVID restrictions. It wasn’t the same as prior years, but we did the best we could and it turned out to be a big success. Please take a minute to look at our short video of last year’s Ice Cream Social parade And here’s a video of the year before that that illustrates what our normal, non-pandemic even looked like Fortunately, this year we’re returning to our pre-pandemic format, but adding last year’s parade to make this the best event ever, including, VIP guests, Carmen’s ice cream, face painting, an enhanced photo booth, and thousands of dollars in door prizes provided by local merchants. Of course, the focus remains on helping all of our children reach their full potential. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, August 21st from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM.

My name is Kristin Wessel.  We will be hosting a Roaring 20’s Party in downtown Frederick on November 6th of this year.  I am trying to locate a 1920-1930 car that we could possibly have parked out front of our venue for the evening. If you now of someone or could send me a recommendation of who to contact that would be of great help.  If you could please contact me here or call me at 304 579 3987 it would be greatly appreciated.


ANCIENT WORD OF THE WEEK

If you know of a word that is rarely used send my way and I will post

Grumpish – this one dates back to the 1720s and it makes us pretty grumpish to realize it’s no longer used. It’s an alternative to sullen or grumpy.
