WEBSTER—Do you have a snazzy muscle car or antique ride that you’d like to show off? This weekend will offer the perfect time to do so.
The Anna Jarvis Birthplace Museum, located at 3576 Webster Pike, just four miles south of Grafton on US Route 119, will be hosting their annual car show on Saturday, September 2, which will feature live music, food, museum tours and 50/50 raffles.
Registration is $ 10 per car, and will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Dash plaques will be issued to the first 50 cars.
“The is one of the major fundraisers that we do for the museum,” shared coordinator Olive Ricketts. “We are hoping for a good turn out this year.”
“This really helps with raising money for the winter months, to help pay bills when tours slow down,” she added.
Trophies will be awarded at 3:00 p.m., for the top cars in categories including Top 20, Anna Jarvis Choice and Best of Show.
During the event, live music will be provided by the Tygart Junction Band beginning at 1:00 p.m., and the Anna Jarvis Museum will be selling hotdogs, pulled pork, chips, cake, ice cream and candy.
“We decided that this year we would sell food items, so that the money earned could be put to good use here at the museum,” explained Ricketts.
There will also be a Chinese auction, with items donated for baskets from many local businesses including Advanced Auto, Napa, Frey’s Auto, Chessie, BB&T and First Community Bank, according to Ricketts.
Goody bags and door prizes will also be given out during the event.
“We want to stress to owners and showers that the Anna Jarvis Museum is not responsible for any accidents, losses or damages during the show,” noted Ricketts.
