This year was a great year for our sixth annual St. Matthew’s Car Show and Festival. We had great weather sponsored by Mother Liz and we had almost 80 cars that were judged by Randy Gottlieb and his team of judges, a great vendor area that was pulled together by Steve McFarland, a great Kid’s Zone overseen by Amanda Livermont and her team of volunteers, and a great bake sale that was organized by Adrienne Donavon and all of those who donated baked goods.
We had a visit from Bishop Wright, who brought his vintage Porsche. We had great auction items and great raffle prizes. It seemed that everyone that was there was able to get a prize.
I especially want to thank our committee: Ralph NeSmith, Mark and Nancy Allen, Bob and Anita Genung, Amanda Livermont, Steve McFarland, Steve Charron, Jay Gesner, Dick Ferrell, Gary Ellis, Jack Reynolds, Randy Gottlieb, Terri Hurst, and, my wife, Pam.
I also want to thank our great DJ, Eddie McFarlane from Fastsigns in Snellville. He kept the conversation and the music very lively.
The good news is that we think we may have raised over our goal of $10,000 thanks to all our sponsors, volunteers and participants. We won’t know the exact figures until later this week or the first of next week, but that is great news!!!
Again, I want to thank our team, our volunteers and a special thanks to all of our generous sponsors. All of you made this the best show that St. Matthews has ever had!!
Jack Denton, Senior Warden
