RCC gives $10,000 to local Chairites

On December 5, 2016 River City Classics Car Club presented a total of $10,000 to local High River Charities.

 
Jeff Langford, our President, speaking on behalf of all Club Members, pointed out that the difficult 2016 economy had not deterred RCC from donating the same amount to Charities as we did in 2015.

He indicated that this is largely due to the hard work and dedication of our Members who put on a very successful Show ‘n Shine in September.
 
Donations were made to 18 individual High River groups.
 
We were very pleased to welcome a representative from 17 of those groups to our regular monthly meeting for the presentation.

Following a tradition established last year, each representative gave a short highlight of the purpose and direction of their organization and where possible an indication of the purpose to which the money will be devoted.
