Rotary to have car show fundraiser Aug. 21

The Newcomerstown Rotary Club will have its first ever car show on Friday, Aug. 21 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the West School, located on Beaver Street, Newcomerstown.

The goal of the car show is to raise money in an effort to help end polio here and around the world. Many children are contracting polio due to the lack of immunizations because of misinformation of vaccinations or the unavailability of the vaccine.

All of the money raised, including that from the car show, as well as from events around the world, will be matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Newcomerstown car show will have 30 sterling silver engraved trays to be given out at this participant-judged show. One hundred dash plaques will be given out for the first 100 registered. Registration will begin at 5 p.m. and will end at 7 p.m. Awards will be given out at 9 p.m. It is a rain or shine show. Vehicles will be parked in the grass area of the West School unless it rains and then will be parked on Oak Street.

A food stand will be located in the vacant office next to Dr. Richard Roe's office on Miskimen Alley. The food stand will be serving grilled corn on the cob, hot dogs donated by Kraft Foods of Coshocton, cream chicken sandwiches and other homemade goodies made by Rotary members and their spouses.

Sponsors for the car show include Dr. Richard Roe, DC, Medi-Wise Pharmacy, Huntington National Bank of Newcomerstown, and Dr. Jay Tolloti, DDS, of New Philadelphia.

The Newcomerstown Rotary Club meets every Monday at April's Country Kitch'n, Newcomerstown, at 6 p.m. New members are welcome.
