Once, again, the students and instructors at C.W. Monroe Tech out did themselves at the 29th Annual Leesburg Car Show.
Even though the total of cars present at the event was down slightly from the previous year ( weather was “iffy”), the students’ efforts paid off in their collection of voluntary donations to the event. The amount donated this year exceeded last years funding by one thousand dollars ($1,000) as a total of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) was presented to C.W. Monroe equally split between the graphics arts department and the automotive collision repair department.
Our thanks go to Pam Smith and David Williams and their creative students for another successful car show. GREAT WORK BY ALL INVOLVED.
We look forward to next years success !

David’s students create the unique trophies that are presented during the car show. These are certainly one-of-a-kind trophies. Great job, as always, by the automotive students.
The membership of the Northern Virginia Rods and Classics car club cannot express enough our thanks to the C.W. Monroe students and instructors for their outstanding efforts in support of our car club.
Putting on a large car show takes hours and hours of efforts, and we know that the success or our annual car show would not be possible without the talents of the students at C.W. Monroe. Thank you for all that you do.
The NVRC members are assisting the Sunrise Senior Living Center with a tour of their facility. The event is planned for the evening of Friday, June 19, 2015, from 4:00 – 7:00 PM.
The event will include an old fashioned BBQ, classic cars, and live music.

BE LOOKING FOR MORE DETAILS AS THE CLUB WORKS TO GAIN FINAL APPROVALS FROM THE LEESBURG TOWN COUNCIL.
We are now in full swing for summer car show and cruise events. Be sure to check our calendar for upcoming activities.
If you know of any interesting event that is not on our calendar, please send the details to the webmaster and the event will be added to our calendar.
A couple of the club members discussed trying an early Sunday morning get together as this seems to be the one weekend day where not many car shows are ever scheduled. Our thought was to have a gathering for coffee, and breakfast if you so choose, and still have time for members to attend church services if desired. Please see the calendar of events for the information. Hopefully, we can get this started by mid-April, weather permitting.
As a side note, the manager of the location we chose is eager for us to try to get it established, as he was a strong advocate for the Country Roads Car Club in West Virginia.
The 28th Annual Leesburg Car Show was a huge success!
THANK YOU for coming out and helping us to support the CS Monroe Technology Center, Auto Body and Graphic Arts Departments. On June 3, 2014, we presented the school with checks totalling $9,000.00.
The automotive department students that created all of the one-of-a-kind trophies received $4500 for their contributions to our car show.
The graphics art department that created all of the flyers, and posters, also, received $4500 for their contributions to our car show.
Students from both of these departments worked throughout the evening taking up donations from those spectators who attended the event.
We look forward to having you join us again next year for the 29th Annual Car Show, scheduled to be held on Saturday evening, June 6, 2015.

A big “thank you” from the Automotive and Graphic Arts departments of CS Monroe.
One-of-a-kind trophies designed and built by members of the Automotive department. These were absolute hits with those individuals who won them during the car show.
All the members of the Northern Virginia Rods and Classics car club want to thank the CS Monroe students and their department heads for the fantastic job that they did during our 2014 car show. It was truly a success and could not have been accomplished without these students and the outstanding efforts that they put forth. Well done, CS Monroe !
