12th Annual Norwood Citizens Car Show & Cruise In

Last week, we spoke with Sharon Noel, secretary of the Norwood Citizens Car Show, about next month’s Norwood Citizens Car Show and Cruise In. Sharon’s enthusiasm is contagious, and she and the other hardworking Car Show Committee members are hoping everyone will stop by for a day of fun looking at the extraordinary classic cars and trucks that will be on display. Norwood native Carl Lindner, a big supporter, is expected be there again this year, along with 4 or 5 of his own classic vehicles.

For those who might not know, the Norwood Citizens Car Show is a non profit that generously donates to other worthy non profit organizations. Sharon tells us that each year money from their proceeds goes to the Norwood Food Bank, plus one of our local hospitals on a rotating basis, usually Childrens Hospital or Shriners Burns. Additionally, they’ve started a fund to build a shelter at one of our parks and hope to add to it this year.

Cruise In: Friday, June 13; 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Registration open for the car show, $15.00 per vehicle.
Car Show: Saturday, June 14; 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Over 50 trophies will be awarded at 4:00 p.m. Registration open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., $15.00 per vehicle.
