Vernon car club show heads indoors

Vintage Car Club of Canada members to display vehicles inside Village Green Shopping Centre Sept. 16

It’s never too late for Father’s Day.

Every year, the Vintage Car Club of Canada North Okanagan Chapter holds a free fundraising car show at the Village Green Shopping Centre’s north-end parking lot for car enthusiasts and to kick off the car show season.

The club could not hold the event on Father’s Day in June due to COVID-19.

But, the centre has allowed the club to display some of its members’ cool, vintage rides inside the mall.

This will take place Wednesday, Sept. 16, from 10-5 p.m.

“We have been able to support local schools with tools and to promote the love of automotive history,” wrote the club on its Facebook page.

The club will be doing a membership drive that day and people are welcome to stop by, check out the vehicles, support the local businesses that are open inside and learn about the fun club members have with their cars.
