The car club’s first attempt in presenting a much needed Edmonton & Area swap meet was held on April 15th at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park, AB. from 8 a.m till 4 p.m.. Vendors from as far south as Drumheller & various locals outside the Edmonton area were present.. The venue was 98% full with a large variety of vendors & the last count at 2:30 p.m was that 790 shoppers had come through the gate.. We even had a Silent auction to assist in raising more dollars for the pot. All the monies raised after the bills are taken care of will be placed in a pot and added to our Annual Show n Shine monies, then the total will be given out to various Edmonton & Area Kid’s groups. The Annual” Bowties vs the World” Show n Shine is slated for August 26th @ the Canadian Tire Store on Fort Road/ 132 Ave.. Here are a few pics from the event and a special thank-you goes to Kathleen for posing next to the club’s trailer ! WOW !! We learned a lot from this being our first attempt and all ideas/concerns will be addressed for next year’s swap meet.. Many thanks to Sharon @ Millennium Place for assisting the Club as well. See you all next year !!! -Jim K.
