Vintage automobiles to compete at New Windsor Day



A vintage car show will be a highlight of the New Windsor Day celebration Saturday at the New Windsor carnival grounds.

More than 125 participants are expected to show off their automotive treasures. Judges will award first-, second- and third-place trophies in 10 categories.

The classes of cars to be judged are: Class 1 -- up to 1928; Class 2 -- 1929-1939; Class 3 -- Model A Fords; Class 4 -- 1940-1950; Class 5 -- 1951-1957; Class 6 -- 1958-1963; Class 7 -- 1964-1969; Class 8 -- 1965-1969 Mustangs; Class 9 -- 1955-57 Chevrolets; and Class 10 -- trucks.

Plaques acknowledging participation will be presented to the owners of the first 125 registered cars. Prizes donated by area businesses will be awarded by random drawing.

If you would like to enter a car for display, the preregistration cost is $5 per car, or $6 per car on the day of the show. Car registration will take place from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, with judging beginning at 1 p.m.

Information and registration: William Kroh, 635-2408.


While you are waiting for the judging to begin, browse through merchandise at the adjacent craft and flea market. Although the preregistration date has passed, limited spaces still are available. Information and reservations: 775-2585.

If you are an early riser, plan to eat breakfast at the carnival grounds. A pancake breakfast will be served in the dining hall from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.

For lunch, choose a hamburger, barbecued meat, hot dog or chicken salad platters served with cole slaw, potato salad, fruit cup and iced tea. Vegetable and chicken corn soups, pies and baked goods also will be available.

Food stands offering a wide variety of choices will operate throughout the day.

The Western line dancers Denim and Lace will perform, as will the Alesia Band. A six-horse hitch demonstration will take place, and hayrides will run continuously.

The EnterTrainment Line will offer excursions between New Windsor and Westminster. If you would like to view historical landmarks of New Windsor, a walking tour is in the works.

Proceeds from the New Windsor Day festivities will benefit the Sulphur Springs and New Windsor Lions clubs, which are sponsoring the event.

This is the first year that the Sulphur Springs Lionesses will assist with the breakfast and the New Windsor Lions will help with the afternoon events. In past years, the men served the breakfast and sponsored the car show, and the women were in charge of lunch and the flea market.

Admission for the day is free, as is parking.


"I speak for democracy. I speak for those who are or have ever been denied that right.

"Consider our voices as we use the most important choice we have -- the freedom to choose what happens in our country." -- Becky Tregoning.

Sheila Stone and Becky Tregoning, Taneytown area residents, voiced their interpretations of democracy at the Taneytown Lions Club's fourth annual donations night May 10.

They placed first and second,respectively, in the Lions Club essay contest that was conducted for Francis Scott Key High School students, speaking before a crowd of 65 family members, friends and Lions.

The club presented savings bonds to both of them. Miss Stone received a $100 bond and Miss Tregoning a $50 bond.

In addition, the Lions presented donations to the Hospice of Carroll County, Taneytown Piranhas Swim Team, Literacy Council of Carroll County, Medical Eye Bank of Maryland, Taneytown Caring and Sharing Fund and Taneytown Lions Little League to show their support for these organizations' efforts. More than $2,000 was distributed.


Jay Graybeal, director of the Historical Society of Carroll County, will be the guest speaker at the meeting of the Taneytown Heritage Committee at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Trinity Lutheran Church, 38 W. Baltimore St.

Mr. Graybeal will discuss techniques for preserving and documenting heirlooms, artifacts and other historical memorabilia, and exhibiting the finished product. If you have questions about an item you would like to preserve, you are welcome to bring it to the meeting.

Meetings are open to the public.
