MILO — The Penquis Cruizers, a classic automobile club, is finalizing plans for the fourth annual Cruize-In from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 27, at the Dexter Shoe Co. parking lot in Milo.
Coordinating the events for this year are Jerry Salley, Fred Worcester and Walter Graves.
The program offers plaques to all participants, live music by the Intruders, games for both children and adults, a model car contest, a 50-50 raffle and an auction.
Awards will include a special presentation to the participant traveling the longest distance to the event, a hard luck award for the person having the greatest difficulty in getting to the event and an award for the area car club with the most members present. This year there also will be an award for the “Leader of the Pack.” This will be chosen by those registering their vehicles for the Cruize-In.
Games for adults will include a creeper race and a sparkplug-changing contest. New this year will be games for children including a bean bag toss, a coloring contest and a junior creeper race.
Last year the Cruizers raised more than $600 at their auction. There will be an auction this year, beginning at 1 p.m. Auction items will include used auto parts, some new items and items donated by businesses and members. A special item to be auctioned will be a rebuilt dual bolt pattern TH350 transmission with a shift kit. The transmission will fit any General Motors vehicle. There will be a minimum bid on this item.
Proceeds from the event are used for club and community betterment projects.
