Grateful for car show help

Sept. 16, the fifth annual Independent Car Show took place on Clay Street in front of the Seneca County Museum as a part of the Tiffin-Seneca County Heritage Festival festivities. The weather was perfect, the street was filled with vintage and unique autos and Jolly’s Root Beer truck was there serving great food. In addition to the car show, there were 27 items raffled off, with the proceeds going to the Seneca County Museum.

None of this would’ve been possible without the wonderful support of the museum docents and Seneca County Historical Society members who staffed the museum, those who helped with the setup and take down of equipment and the following businesses that donated raffle items: AutoZone, Baughman Auto Group, Coppus Motors, Danner’s Towing & Recycling, the Drive Thru – Tiffin, Family Video, First National Bank of Sycamore, Gem Yoga, GW’s Fine Foods & Spirits, Ryan and Pam Hoffert, Lee’s Famous Recipe, Lowes, NAPA Auto Parts, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Ralph’s Joy of Living, Tom Rodgers Flowers, Seneca County Historical Society and Sycamore Fire & Rescue.

Most of all, we’d like to thank Gina Peacock for her tremendous efforts in organizing and directing the car show; her dad, Keith Scott, for being the disc jockey and providing the awesome music all day; and for David Hoffert for announcing the door prize winners. Once again, a big “thank you” to everyone for their hard work and donations, because your efforts helped our beautiful Seneca County Museum! The fifth annual Independent Car Show of 2017 was a great success and we look forward to even a bigger and better car show at the 2018 Heritage Festival.
