Oliver's 2nd annual Car Show BBQ a success

PLYMOUTH — The sweltering sun didn’t seem to deter either car buffs or barbecue fans Saturday as a crowd gathered behind Oliver Ford.
Attendees were there to play in cornhole tournaments, check out the endless rows of impressively polished cars, and enjoy some summer barbecue. Proceeds from the day’s event went to benefit St. Michael’s school.
“We give to all of the schools in our community, and this event is for St. Michael’s,” said Jennifer Houin.
Lin Van Paris, who assists Oliver Ford with marketing, added, “With all the schools having budget cuts, this is a way for us to give back to the community.”
Paris also said that anyone who wishes to donate to the school but could not attend Saturday’s event may still do so at Oliver Ford. During the next week, anyone that donates $15 to St. Michael’s through Oliver Ford will receive two B100 Birthday party concert tickets.
“We knew that some people couldn’t fit us into their weekend,” said Paris.
Tents were set up to offer shelter from the sun and a place for venders to sell their wares. Businesses at the car show included the Brass Rail selling beverages, Boy Scouts troop 257 selling doughnuts for a donation, Overmeyer Water selling bottled water, and different barbecue tents.
