The Tri-County Cruis­ers Rod & Cus­tom Car Club re­cently pre­sented do­na­tions to area or­ga­ni­za­tions as part of its mis­sion to give back to the com­mu­nity. Funds were raised dur­ing their 17th an­nual car show, held Sept. 23 in Baden.

Paul Har­ris, club pres­i­dent, pre­sented checks to guest re­cip­i­ents from area hospice or­ga­ni­za­tions dur­ing the club’s Nov. 2 meet­ing. Re­cip­i­ents in­cluded Calvert Hospice, Hospice of St. Mary’s, Hospice of Charles County and Hospice of the Ch­e­sa­peake Foun­da­tion. Ad­di­tional checks were pre­sented to An­gel’s Watch in Charles County, St. Jude Chil­dren’s Re­search Hospi­tal, the Cus­tom and Clas­sic Car Ed­u­ca­tional Foun­da­tion and the Baden Vol­un­teer Fire De­part­ment (BVFD).

Do­na­tions were made pos­si­ble through the par­tic­i­pa­tion of street rod, cus­tom, an­tique and mus­cle car own­ers at the Sept. 23 show, as well as pub­lic at­ten­dance and do­na­tions from lo­cal busi­nesses.

The Tri-County Cruis­ers showed its grat­i­tude to the Baden Vol­un­teer Fire Depart- ment with a pre­sen­ta­tion of a check to help pay down the cost of the Baden pumper tanker. The fire sta­tion is the lo­ca­tion of the Tri-County Cruis­ers’ monthly meet­ings as well as the lo­ca­tion of the club’s an­nual car show on the fire sta­tion’s ball­field.

The Tri-County Cruis­ers Club is a non­profit, fam­ily-ori­ented au­to­mo­bile club fo­cus­ing on the preser­va­tion and en­joy­ment of au­to­mo­biles that are 25 years and older, and their re­lated ma­te­ri­als, ori­ented to the 1950s style rod and cus­tom look, and to pro­mote fel­low­ship among its mem­bers and fel­low car en­thu­si­asts.

The Tri-County Cruis­ers sup­port lo­cal and na­tional char­i­ties as well as other non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions with do­na­tions and/or as­sis­tance with their pro­grams. Club mem­bers are ded­i­cated to helping those who are less for­tu­nate while pre­serv­ing their hobby for fu­ture generations.
