Second Drayton Cruise night draws 90 vehicles from wide region

DRAYTON – The Rotary Club of Drayton sponsored another successful cruise night on Sept. 9, with 90 vehicles in attendance.

Vehicles came from Goderich, Hanover, Lucknow, Glen Allan, Neustadt, Alma, Walkerton, Teeswater, Harriston, Breslau, Listowel, Mitchell, Belwood, Mount Forest, Arthur, Palmerston, Waterloo, Winterbourne, Guelph, Fergus, Elmira, Gowanstown and Kitchener, as well as local residents from the Drayton and Moorefield areas.

“We wish to express our deep and heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you who made this such a successful evening,” club officials state.

Rotary officials thanked “All the drivers, the hard-working cooking crew, the spectators, the volunteer helpers selling 50/50 tickets,” adding, “A special shout out to quite a few people who will be listed in the Wellington Advertiser. A very special shoutout to Ray Ellis, Edith Giffin, Mary Thompson and Alexis Dobben.”

The club was once again able to donate a trunk full of food to the local food back because of attendees’ generosity.

Next month (Oct. 7) will be the last cruise night for the season (weather permitting), but Rotarians promise next year will be bigger and better, with draw prizes and the 50/50 draw.

“We may need to change venue spots in order to accommodate all the cars.  Watch for the post for 2020 season in February.”

The club will be offering a Classic Car calendar that will be coming out in December.
