4A Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Car show benefits fire departments The Sierra Cascade Street Rodders will bring their antique and souped up vehicles for the viewing pleasure of those attending Railroad Days. The Show and Shine will be Saturday after the parade alongside City Park. The Sierra Cascade Street Rodders is a non- profit organization whose main goal is to promote in- terest in the automotive hobby. Its secondary goal is to raise funds for the sober graduation program for the local area high schools. The group also raises funds for the local area volunteer fire depart- ments. The primary fundraiser is the annual car show during the Plumas County Old-Fashioned Picnic the first weekend in June at the fairgrounds in Quincy. The money raised is lim- ited to participation in the car show. For that reason, the group donates money to the fire districts on a rotational basis. This year the car buffs will donate to Sierra Val- ley Fire District, Meadow Valley Fire District, In- dian Valley District and Bucks Lake Fire District. There will be an award presentation to the fire districts Aug. 21, at 3 p.m. during the Railroad Days celebration in Portola. The awards will be presented just before the trophy presentation during the Classic Car Show and Shine at the Portola City Park during the Railroad Day's event. In addition, there will be a prize drawing during the Show and Shine, with all of the proceeds going to purchase school supplies for the C. 'Roy Carmichael Elementary School in Portola. Local business merchants and citizens do- nated the drawing prizes.
