PDC Bob Erickson and State Senior Vice Commander Mick Aguirre traveled with me Saturday to Rochester to attend the 3rd Annual DAV Car Show.
It was a perfect day for the show and an outstanding crowd was on hand having a great time viewing the vintage cars and chatting with the owners and “tailgating” enjoying the food stands, community booths etc.
Mayo Southeast Chapter 28 had many members/volunteers there in their DAV apparel along with a well staffed DAV welcome booth, loaded with DAV apparel, giveaways and DAV information.
The event included door prizes, food stands, trophies for winning cars, a live auction of donated items, a huge raffle with donated items from the Rochester community and businesses.
The entire parking lot of a major shopping center was filled with cars, visitors and food stands. PDC Erickson and Sr. Vice greeted and chatted with many of the public and Mayo members. Several major donations were received at the event. All in all, net proceeds will clearly exceed $25,000.
