In its 24th year, the Clawson Lions Club's "Down on Main Street" Car Show was among the best shows we've ever had! Everything went even better than we hoped for. The sun tried to peek through the clouds all day on Saturday, August 13th -- most important, though, no rain! Over 350 car owners registered. Thousands of spectators showed up to see the fabulous street machines. And everyone got to dance to the great oldies spun by the one-and-only Rockin' Ronnie while they stuffed themselves with all the good food and drink you could ask for.
We want to extend our sincere thanks to all the business and individual sponsors who make this event such a success. Without their unwavering support, in good times and lately not so good, we couldn't pull it off. A special thanks to our Corporate Sponsors Double Action Indoor Shooting Range, Weiss Distilling Company, and Whiskey Taco Foxtrot and all of the rest of our business and individual sponsors in the list below. Their generous support helps us cover the costs of putting on the show. Our thanks to the United Street Machines Association (USMA). They do such a great job pulling everything together. All the judging, trophy presentations, promoting the show and logistical support -- there is so much that goes on behind the scenes to make an event of this size a success. Finally, let's not forget our biggest supporter and partner, the City of Clawson and all of the City staff. Without the help of the Police, Public Works and supporting departments, we couldn't shut down one of the major arteries in our town from sun up to sun down the day of the show and have everything back to normal without a trace the following day.
The "Down on Main Street" Car Show is the centerpiece of the Clawson Lions Club's yearlong fundraising efforts to benefit local charities. As always, all proceeds from the Show go to Leader Dogs for the Blind, Eversight Michigan, Beaumont Silent Children, the Penrickton Center for Blind Children in Taylor and all the other charities and projects the Clawson Lions Club supports throughout the year.
Every year, the Clawson Lions try to shake things up a bit, add something new, improve on what we've done the last time, pray for good weather and ask our sponsors to please help us again. This year was fantastic but we can't wait to get started on 2023. Next August will bring yet another opportunity to work together for all the right reasons -- the charities the Clawson Lions support through fundraising events like this and your generous contributions throughout the year.
