The Country Cruisers Car Club, which organizes the cruise and show, has about 40 members. They are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year.


“We have monthly meetings and we try to get together as a club for outings, shows, breakfasts, or lunches,” Sean said.


IMG_1814The club is brought together by their love of vehicles and also by a mission to help area organizations.

“Everything we do is charity-driven,” Sean said. “We give a lot of money to the Special Olympics and Operation Santa Claus. We gave away $3-4,000 last year.”
