Yorktown Car Club Celebrates 25 Years
Submitted by Al Crane

CCCClub imageThis year the Classic Cruisers Car Club of Yorktown, celebrates it's 25th year hosting family fun events for our residents and tourists alike, celebrating our automotive heritage, having raised funds over $200,000 for charities in our community. The club is comprised of over 70 members of all ages and backgrounds, many serving in the military, on local military installations, NASA, Newport News Shipyards, and local businesses.

They are kicking off their 25th season with the Saturday Night Cruise ins at the Coastal Community Church, 101 Village Ave, Yorktown (Kiln Creek Village Square Shopping Center) on April 14. The cruise ins run from 5PM-9PM every Saturday Night (weather permitting) until October 13th . A local charity selected by club members is featured each month to which all funds collected from people displaying their vehicles or spectators is donated.

The Club is also sponsoring 3 car shows in York County this year- Memorial Day Car Show May 28 (Benefiting Wounded Warriors) and Labor Day Show September 3 (benefiting the Church Building Fund and Youth Area) at the Coastal Community Church and the 4th of July Car Show at Shorty's Diner, Merrimac Trail- (Williamsburg address but-upper York County) - benefiting the Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters /CHKD)

At both the Saturday Night Cruise ins and car shows, numerous vehicles are on display (classic, late model, modified, hot rod, show, imports, and novelty) and the participants are often engaged in interactive conversations with other enthusiasts and visitors young and old alike about their "rides" and the stories behind them. Spectators are welcome and free at both the cruise-ins and car shows. to view the vehicles often share their memories about their "first car', "dads car', or their "favorite car".

Also of interest, last year, as in the past, the club support requests from local senior and assisted living facilities, (Crossings at Yorktown and York Convalescent Center and facilities in Williamsburg, Hampton, and Newport News) and the Veterans Administration Hospital in Hampton. There, our members have their vehicles on display for the enjoyment of their residents. The club also had vehicles on display at local schools . This is done at no cost to the facility, it's part of their community outreach.
