Car enthusiasts to showcase their rides

 WEBSTER—Do you have a snazzy muscle car or antique ride that you’d like to show off? Well, you’ll have your chance during the Anna Jarvis Birthplace Museum’s Annual Car Show.

The Anna Jarvis Birthplace Museum, located at 3576 Webster Pike, just four miles south of Grafton on US Route 119, will be hosting their annual car show on Saturday, September 5, which will feature live music, food, museum tours and 50/50 raffles. 

Registration is $10 per car and will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Dash plaques will be issued to the first 30 cars.

 “The is one of the major fundraisers that we do for the museum,” shared coordinator Olive Ricketts. “We are hoping for a good turn out this year.”

“This really helps with raising money for the winter months, to help cover the cost of our utility bills when tours slow down,” she added. “Even though it is winter, and tours don’t occur as often, we must keep the utilities on at the house to ensure it is properly maintained.” 

Trophies will be awarded at 3:00 p.m., for the top cars in categories including Top 20, Anna Jarvis Choice and Best of Show.

During the event, live 50s era music will be provided beginning at 1:00 p.m.

Ricketts revealed that the Anna Jarvis Museum will be selling hotdogs, pulled pork, chips and other various goodies to guests of the event. 

“We decided that this year we would sell food items, so that the money earned could be put to good use here at the museum,” explained Ricketts. 

There will also be a Chinese auction, with items donated for baskets from many local businesses, according to Ricketts.

Goody bags and door prizes will be given, as well.

“We want to stress to owners and showers that the Anna Jarvis Museum is not responsible for any accidents, losses or damages during the show,” noted Ricketts.

For more information concerning the show, please contact Ricketts by phone at 304-265-5549. 

Those attending the show may want to bring a chair and stay for an evening of music in the park following the annual event.

Beginning at 6:00 p.m., a lineup of musical acts including the Anna Jarvis Park Stage Band, various open mic performers and special guests Shannon, Rodney and Draylin will be taking the stage to entertain guests. 

“We hope you will come out for that, too. Even if you can’t make it to the car show, come on out for a fun evening of music in the park,” Ricketts urged. 

The event is free for children to attend, and adults are asked to pay just $6 for an evening of music, sure to get you up and moving.

“Hope to see you all there, along with our line dancers,” Ricketts imparted.
