The Dixie Car Club met on June 3erd. President Shane Shelton welcomed 30 members and two guest. It was great to see many faces I haven’t seen in over a year!   The new guest was Corbin Cooper who has many project cars going on and Tina Collins son who had visited with us a few times before.

The Ramsey’s have the July outing.  It will be July 10th which is a Thursday evening, and more details will be announced at the next meeting.
I have made reservations for Third Thursday through August.  This is a good event featuring local food trucks vendor, live bands, and all the local shops around the Saline County Court house are open.  The next event is June 17th. When arriving just let one of the event staff know you are with the Dixie Car Club, and they will get you to a parking place. Our parking location changes for each event based what space is available. If possible, arrive between 5:00 and 5:30.  The event begins at 6:00 and runs to at least 8:00.
