Burin Penin­sula res­i­dents can again take a trip back in time by vis­it­ing the Marys­town Arena this week­end for ‘Clas­sics 2012’.

The South­ern Clas­sics An­tique and Clas­sic Car Club’s 19th annual car show June 16-17 will of­fer vis­i­tors a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of vin­tage ve­hi­cles from days gone by.

Due to the con­tin­ued gen­eros­ity and sup­port of spon­sors, par­tic­i­pants and the pub­lic who at­tended this event since 1993, the show has gen­er­ated much needed funds for many projects at the Burin Penin­sula Health Care Cen­ter in ex­cess of $83,000.

There were items for chemo­ther­apy pa­tient care, pe­di­atric care, sofa beds, in­fant mon­i­tors, IV pumps, In­fant mon­i­tor, youth bed, geri­atric chair, Cell washer for Lab, Do­na­tions to CT scan­ner and Ul­tra­sound fund, just to name a few.

Over the past two years pro­ceeds went to the es­tab­lish­ment of a Fam­ily Quiet Room – a unit where sur­gi­cal and spe­cial pro­ce­dure pa­tient fam­i­lies can wait and/or speak with med­i­cal teams. The unit is beau­ti­fully fur­nished and equipped with a TV – the sole pur­pose of this unit is to pro­vide pa­tients and their fam­i­lies with a com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment when and if needed.

The club will main­tain this unit when re­quired.

This year pro­ceeds will be directed to­ward the ER Staff ‘ Wish List’ that in­cludes items such as four Over bed ta­bles, two Mayo Stand trays, two In­vacare Wheel­chairs with at­tached O2 tank hold­ers, six IV poles and a Fluid Warmer,

The event has par­tic­i­pants from through­out the prov­ince, which also gen­er­ates sup­port for local busi­ness in the food, ho­tel and re­tail sec­tor and has great en­ter- tain­ment value.

Come out and sup­port this cause and help the South­ern Clas­sic Car Club mem­bers with the ER Staff 2012 Wish List of Items. There will be ticket sales, door prizes and an Awards Cer­e­mony Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Clas­sics 2012 will be held at Marys­town Arena Satur­day, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sun­day, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

An­tique cars from around the is­land will be on dis­play at the Marys­town Arena, spon­sored by the South­ern Clas­sics An­tique and Clas­sic Car Club, this Satur­day and Sun­day.
