Oh So Thankful. . .



Well over 100 plates of food were served Saturday, July 12 in the Robinson City Park when local Masons from Newton, Flat Rock, Oblong, Palestine, and Robinson lodges hosted their old-fashioned BBQ.  This is the seventh consecutive year that Masons have hosted a benefit meal, and this year these community volunteers conducted a car, truck, and bike show as well, which added to the crowd.


 

Although the rain on Saturday diminished the crowd, several classic car and truck owners as well as some bikers competed in the first ever car show as a part of the benefit event.  Those who earned accolades in the event are as follows.  First among motorcycle entries:  Don and Marie Andrews of Willow Hill for their 2005 1400cc Harley Davidson Super Glide.  First among truck entries:  Bobby Reed of Martinsville, for his 1941 Ford, and first among car entries and also best overall winner:  Steve Tingley of Marshall for his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro 350 SS-RS.  These beauties, among others, attracted a crowd of onlookers and helped to generate further interest in the benefit dinner.


 

Thanks also goes to Widow's Son motorcycle club for also participating in the festivities by selling snow cones and lemon shake-ups.  In addition, Ginger Robins, Usborne Book dealer, had an excellent cash-and-carry book sale during the day-long event.  There was surely something for everyone.
