The Saint Francisville Chamber of Commerce, along with over 60 local businesses, civic groups, and Public bodies, sponsored the 3rd annual "Classic Car Show" in downtown Saint Francisville at Parker Memorial Park, April 6,7,8,9 2006.
. The weatherman cooperated by sending us cool temperatures and a beautiful bluebird spring day…what a setting and a venue for over 120 cars from 3 States and an estimated 4,000 people who cycled through the four (4) day event. Good food, live music, special spectator cars provided by local car dealers, select cruises through the "wow…oh my gosh" rolling hills of the Felicianas, as well as many beautiful automotive works of art were all part of the "Cruising in the Country" experience.
The Saint Francisville Chamber of Commerce and the local supporters, designate a worthwhile charity to benefit from any profits that the event generates. This year's recipient was "The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Louisiana" whose mission statement is to "grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich their human experience with hope, strength and joy."
Finally, as the event coordinator, I wish to thank our many sponsors and the special few who got involved and made it happen. It's amazing what WE can get accomplished when a small group pulls together for the good of the community…how refreshing.
