The Ridge Route Run is a gathering of over 100 classic cars in a festival of music, food, crafts and fun on Mt. Pinos Way in Frazier Park Saturday, May 25, 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m. But the event is also a purposeful commitment to this community.
Frazier Mountain Car Club members strive to serve our Mountain Community veterans this Memorial Day weekend, in honor of the sacrifice they have made for our country.
Blood Drive: Last year we doubled our goal for Houchin Community Blood Bank. Each pint can help up to four people. Let’s break through that goal again this year. You can sign up in advance to donate. Call Kevin Lundin at 661-245-0150 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Food Drive: Show entrants bring canned food donations along with their beautiful cars. You can too. The Family Resource Center food pantry will receive the canned or nonperishable foods.
Veterans Services Info: The group Veterans Helping Veterans will be at the car show, ready to help veterans connect to services available for any needs they may have.
Veterans Memorial Walk: New to the Ridge Route Run this year is the Veterans Memorial Walk, sponsored by the Mountain Communities Chamber of Commerce. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9791 will walk in this memorial event and we invite everyone to come out and walk with them, in honor of a veteran who has served. Meet us in front of Ace Hardware at 11:30 a.m. If you can, bring a picture of your loved one and carry it along with the American flag.
