The Verona Cattail Festival is only 4 weeks away. One big part of the festival is The Classic Car Show. This is the 19 year for the car show and what started as a 40 car event has blossomed into a huge, immensely popular annual event at the festival with over 200 classic beauties. Come see cars your great grand parents drove. Cars from every decade, from 1910 to present, will be represented. If you have a golden oldie that you want to enter in the Car Show contact Ed at 613-374-2966 for more details. As for me, I will join the rest of the crowd and view these fascinating vehicles. Visit The Classic Car Show at the Verona Lions Center on Sunday, August 10.
