Lo­cal car lovers came out to the Logic Lum­ber Car Mu­seum Satur­day af­ter­noon for the 12th an­nual Rob Dixon Me­mo­rial Clas­sic Car Show.

Peo­ple had the op­por­tu­nity to get up close and per­sonal with some of their most ad­mired clas­sic and mus­cle cars, along with mo­tor­cy­cles and hot rods, with all of the pro­ceeds from the event go­ing to ben­e­fit the In­ter­faith Food Bank of Lethbridge.

“The own­ers of Logic Lum­ber are big car fa­nat­ics so they wanted to have a car show to give back to the city of Lethbridge,” says Brad Calder, event or­ga­nizer. “We thought that the In­ter­faith Food bank would be a good char­ity to go to as Septem­ber is a big time for need and Christ­mas is close, so we thought that we would get in­volved with them and they help us out with ev­ery­thing from regis­tra­tion and ev­ery­thing else, so we thought that we would do­nate all of the money from it right to them.”

The an­nual event brings around 400 peo­ple ev­ery year to check out the over 50 cars and mo­tor­cy­cles on dis­play and to help do­nate around $6,000 to the food bank.

“We def­i­nitely get a lot of peo­ple that need the food bank’s help,” says Con­nie Kon­bilck, In­ter­faith Food Bank vol­un­teer. “It gets the aware­ness out there. They are nice enough to do­nate the pro­ceeds from the raf­fle tick­ets and 50/50 draws to the In­ter­faith Food Bank, and it is a won­der­ful or­ga­ni­za­tion and I have come to see that since I have vol­un­teered with them.”

The clas­sic car show wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble with­out the sup­port of the Logic Lum­ber spon­sors in­clud­ing Astro In­sur­ance, Struc­tural Truss, For­mas­teel, Tim­bertech Truss, Har­ris Re­bar, Good­fel­low and War­wick Print­ing.

Giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity, while spread­ing the love and knowl­edge of clas­sic ve­hi­cles, the Logic Lum­ber Clas­sic Car Show opened its Car Mu­seum for peo­ple to ob­serve and help peo­ple in need within the com­mu­nity of Lethbridge.
