CHAMPLAIN - The Northeastern Clinton Central School student council is doing it again.
This year's student council will host a car show this Saturday, May 21, in the front parking lot of the high school on State Route 276.
"This will be our second one," said student council advisor Janet McFetridge. "Our goal again this year is to draw members of the community as well as a wide variety of students."
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and feature seven categories in which vehicle owners may classify their entries - Muscle/Hot Rod, Pre-1950, Post 2000, Dirtiest, Most Abused, Motorcycle, and Truck.
"Last year, we had about 40 cars. So, this year, we're hoping it's going to be even bigger and better," said McFetridge.
And, that goes for the money the council wants to raise, too, said McFetridge. The first annual car show raised enough in registration fees and concessions sales to provide $200 donations each to the Champlain, Rouses Point, and Mooers volunteer fire departments. The council is currently in the process of deciding what charitable goal it will have this year.
This Saturday's event will include a bike safety rodeo for kids, said McFetridge, adding to what the event will offer.
"We'll be setting that up in the back parking lot," she said. "We're inviting children to bring their bikes and ride the course, learning about safety."
"We're just hoping the weather cooperates," she added.
Admission to this Saturday's event will be free. The cost to register a vehicle will be $10 for adults and $5 for students.
In addition to concessions, the car show will include raffles and 50/50 drawings.
