Now that we appear to have old man winter going back to the north pole where he belongs, it is time to consider getting our vehicles ready for the early spring outings.
It is always interesting to see what new cars come out for their first showing in 2015. Rumor has it that we will see a few of our members bringing out recently acquired or re-incarnated vehicles.
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-March, 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.
NEW DATE: Sponsored by the Leesburg Business Association and the Northern Virginia Rods and Classics Car Club, the 29th Annual Car Show is currently in the planning stages and is tentatively being planned for Saturday, June 6, 2015, between 5-10pm. The rain date is tentatively set for Sunday, June 7. This year’s show, as in the past, will benefit the CS Monroe Auto Body and Graphic Arts Department students.
Automobiles made in 1990 or earlier are welcome to participate. Staging may take place at 4pm at Tuscarora High School. The cost to participate is $20. For additional information, please contact Carolyn Craig at (703) 864-1665.

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 !
