Penrhyn Car Rally set for June 8


B y Jaime Thomas

Model cars, rickshaws, motorcycles and tractors — they’ll all be on display at the seventh annual Penrhyn Engine and Hose Company Car Rally next month.

On June 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Middle Granville Carnival Grounds, local car aficionados can look at entries from Granville, Rutland, Hudson Falls and elsewhere.

“The car show offers a time for family, friends and neighbors to come out and enjoy good food and good conversation while helping out a good cause,” organizers said. Bernie Emery, a car show organizer, said the event is a major fundraiser for the fire company.

In the past, he said they’ve been fortunate to have many cars at the show, and this year he will be debuting his 1957 Henry J. Kaiser Rat Rod. People enjoy these events so much, he said, because they like to talk about what they’ve done to fix up their cars with others who can appreciate it.

And Ardyce Bresett, car show committee leader, thinks the show inspires people to do their own fix-ups.

“It helps us build up our wish list. It’s fun to own one, it’s fun to build one and it’s fun to show people,” she said.

Emery is hoping for a good crowd to come out to the event and support the fire department. Money raised from the show will help Middle Granville’s fire company with maintenance of their building and truck upkeep and utility costs.

“These are difficult economic times and we hope that continuing local events like this will help to keep our community spirits high and our money local,” organizers said. They are looking for area businesses for cash sponsorship donations, which will allow them to introduce what they offer to the community and will help support the event.

In addition to all the vehicles, there will be live music, food, fun and ground prizes, as well as a 50/50 raffle at the event.

The rally a rain date of Sunday, June 9. Admission is $3 and free for children under six. The entry fee to show is $8 for preregistration and $10 at the event. For more information call Bresett at 518-642-0798 or Emery at 518-642-1094.
