(Club will hold a car show Saturday)
Bi-Lo co-manager Tonya Ivey said the yard sale they sponsored in collaboration with the Lions Club last Saturday was successful enough to consider making it a monthly event. She said the turn out was good, everyone made some money, and when it was over Good Will brought a truck to take donations if people didn’t want to pack up and keep their things.
Yard sale proceeds go to the Lions Club, an organization whose efforts Ivey and others at Bi-Lo respect and appreciate.
“They do a lot of good work in the community,” said Ivey.
This Saturday Bi-Lo and the Lions Club will hold their forth-annual car show in the Bi-Lo parking lot from 2 -5 pm. The show grows with each year, and 30 to 40 cars are expected to participate. The Corvette Car Club, Carolina Cruisers, Mint Hill Police, and Mint Hill Fire Department will be present.
Snow cones, pop corn, and lunch plates of chicken breast, baked beans, cole slaw and a roll – only five dollars a plate – will be for sale to help raise money. Bi-Lo will also provide music.
The show will be judged in five categories: classic, antique, hot rod, muscle, and motorcycle. First and second place winners will win trophies, and awards will be presented around 5 pm. Register at Bi-Lo for $15, or park and show your car for $5.
The Lions Club wants to express its gratitude toward Penny’s Place owner Bill Kiser for his involvement in the car show. He is a car collector and brings a car to the show every year. He initiated the event and works all year to help in the planning.
