The 2018 Autumn Cruise was a success. A very big thank you to our three event sponsors, Clouse Construction, Verne HART Grange Insurance Agency and Reineke Family Dealerships! Also thank you to all our major and trophy sponsors. This year we were able to present a check to Hospice of Wyandot County for $25,500!!!! Another thank you is to all the wonderful people who bring their cars and trucks to the cruise, without them there would be no show!

This is why we do what we do! 😀 Thanks
I just wanted to commend you folks for doing such a great job of putting on a car show. This makes my 6th year for attending and I look forward to coming each year, however, I must admit that I hate leaving for fear something will happen to me and prevent me from coming back. The Golden Years are not always so golden, but God willing I will be back next year. I personally feel that you put on one of the best shows around outside of Goodguys in Columbus, but for a local show you are the best. Let me explain or support my reasons for saying this. Atmosphere - This is a show for all ages. All one has to do is to look around see us seniors as well as toddlers taking advantage of what is available. Nothing pleases me more than to see youngsters riding with their parents in the vehicles of the past. Just like the saying goes, "Bring a kid to a car show" because this is how we get kids interested in cars. Cruising - This is really great to have and to see. Most shows don't want to go there because of hot rodding, but in all my years of going to shows with cruising, I have viewed very few incidents of abuse. Everyone handles the responsibility quite well. I enjoy a show like this because not only do I like to see the cars, but I love to hear the engines because it makes the show come alive. Food - There is never a shortage of food available and at reasonable prices too. Restaurants, churches, stores, service groups etc. all get involved which helps all the attendees to get food regardless of where they are at. Stores/Merchants - Many stores are open throughout the stores for people to shop or browse around. I know my wife enjoys going in and out of the different stores while we are there. My wife always comments on the friendliness of the merchants when she walks into their stores. It really makes her feel welcome. Door prizes - Wow! What an abundance of prizes. Now I know this is no easy job as I have helped to put on shows as businesses hate to see you come because they get hit on all the time, but somehow you make it happen. I believe it is because the area businesses ban together to make this a terrific event for the entire community. Kudos to those businesses and your sponsors. Profits - I enjoy going to car shows that have a real good cause to donate the proceeds to. No only do you say you are going to do it, you also say how much goes to each charity over the years. Nothing is hidden. Awards - Your awards are great and I do realize there are a lot of trophy hunters out there. They should be happy to have their cars recognized. For me and I am not bragging, but I am beyond the trophies as I have a garage full from over the years. I am at the time when I would like to see some people receive trophies that don't always receive one so they can experience the thrill that I did when I was younger. I know not all car guys would agree with me. In closing I again want to thank you for a wonderful time. This has become the highlight of my summer as it soon will be coming to a close. It is very evident of the hard work, organization, long hours and a community effort that makes this rewarding and possible. Please keep up the good work and I hope my comments will help you in future planning. I am a big believer in collecting data to drive improvement and using feedback whether it be negative or positive to create the necessary changes for improvement. Best of Luck, John K.
On Friday night 9/21/2018 at approximately 8:15 PM, the City of Upper Sandusky had a major water leak in the 200 block of North Sandusky Avenue. City crews were dispatched and worked throughout the night into the early morning making the repairs. Crews also repaired the roadway and cleaned up the massive amount of mud from the roadway.
