Pelion, SC (Paul Kirby) – The Pelion Church of the Nazarene held its annual car show fundraiser several weekends ago and as in the past, the crowds were great as were the cars that were shown. Each year, this event is held as a way to raise funds for church programs.
Every year, one of the church’s members builds the trophies out of car parts which makes them unique items. They are certainly different and for most car enthusiasts who show on a regular basis, it’s nice to get something a bit different if you’ve won a number of trophies in past shows. There are also a number of prizes given away and great food that’s cooked and sold as part of the fun raising efforts.
All day, the folks who show sit as the crowds and judges walk by. At the end of the day, there’s great anticipation as the winners are announced. This year, the winners were:
Gloria Sandler - Tractor Division
Edward Grice - Car Division 40-59
Terry Hutto - Car Division 60-85
Larry Friedrich - Car Division 86 up
Leo Whritenour - Truck Division 55 Older

Congratulations to all of the winners. The church’s members and staff would like to thank everyone who volunteered to help again this year with the car show.
