Vernon car club provides financial assistance to area high schools

Money raised from a popular Vernon car show is being distributed among Vernon School District automotive classes.

The Vintage Car Club of Canada North Okanagan chapter donated more than $3,600 to automotive classes at Charles Bloom Secondary in Lumby and at Vernon Secondary, W.L. Seaton and Clarence Fulton in Vernon.

The money was raised through the club’s popular Father’s Day Car Show.

“Donations were made to promote automotive interests,” said Myron Feniuk from the club. “Funds were based on student population in each class.”

Classes at Fulton and Vernon Secondary received $1,200. Fulton received gift certificates to Lordco Auto Parts and KMS Tools. VSS will put the money toward a plasma cutter.

Seaton received $675 for electric cordless tools, and Bloom pocketed $600 to be used toward a mig welder.

Money was received by shop and technology teachers Travis Deschamps (Fulton), Kevin McIntyre (Seaton), Jason Boden (VSS) and Jimmy Perron (Charles Bloom).
