Warrensburg Car Hop planned
To rediscover the fun of a American tradition from a half-century ago, the Warrensburg Business Alliance is hosting a new event titled the Warrensburg Car Hop, set for 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday Sept. 12.
Remember the days you drove your muscle car to a drive-in food joint and they served you at your car? Perhaps a waitress whisked around the parking lot on roller skates and hung a tray on your car window? Well, that’s a car hop.
While the event doesn’t feature car-side service or waitresses on skates, vintage muscle cars and classic vehicles will be on display along Main St. at Warrensburg Car Care, Smith’s Garage and Krystal Chrysler-Jeep — with food available nearby at Luck-E-Star Restaurant. A 1950s-style menu will be served outside.
Radio Station WCKM will be providing music from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and local businesses will be displaying and selling their goods. Admission is free. The rain date is Sept. 13. All are invited to come and view these classic cars and reminisce!
Annual Sept. 11 Memorial approaching
Warrensburg’s annual September 11 Memorial Service is to be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 11 at the Floyd Bennett Bandstand on upper Main St.. The service is to honor those who lost their lives on that fateful date 12 years ago in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania. All are invited to attend the event, which is the most prominent memorial event of its kind in the region.
