Even Tractor Trains have back seat drivers! That’s six-year-old Izzabella Dixon from Jonestown. On second thought, maybe Izzabella is the turn signal.

The Zion Spies Evangelical Lutheran Church held their 5th Annual “Cruise 4 Kids” Car Show & Apple Harvest Festival on Saturday, Sept. 2. The aftermath of Hurricane Harvey passed through the area at the time of this year’s edition of the show. The unseasonably cold, damp weather peppered with intermittent rain limited the turnout of entires but did little to dampen the enthusiasm of those present; car show entries, church volunteers, vendors and spectators alike.

The event was participant and spectator judged and the vehicles were registered in six classes; Antique, Classic, Street Rod, Import, Motorcycle and a newly created class, “Anything With Wheels”. Receiving awards at day’s end were Guy Manwiller (Antique), Rob Kissinger (Classic), Terry Hartman (Street Rod), Phil Kline (Import) and Adam Readinger (Anything With Wheels). There were no motorcycles entered in this year’s event.

Numerous individuals and church groups worked together to make this a successful event. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be used to sponsor area children to attend Bear Creek Day Camp held at Zion Spies Evangelical Lutheran Church. Bear Creek Camp is a week long day camp offered to area children tuition free. Children ranging from kindergarten to 6th grade attend the day camp.
