Our 28th Annual Exposition ~ May 6, 2012

Overcast clouds kept the temperature moderate and with the light breeze from the lake, the twenty-eighth anniversary of All British & European Car Day was a smashing success. Kudos to participants and car clubs who displayed fantastic cars and motorbikes! Our official count was 227 registered vehicles.

You donated 71 pairs of shoes and made $85 in cash contributions, a little light for us; however,  Shoes for Orphan Souls is thrilled to have them. To find out more about SOS visit
