“It was a beautiful day to host these car, truck and motorcycle owners who all had rich stories to tell about the connection between vehicle, owner, family, friends and community,” Averett said. “It’s inspiring to see how dedication to something can bring so many people together,”

The Troy Kiwanis Club will use the proceeds from the 2023 car show to promote literacy for children of the Troy community as well as to help prevent tetanus for kids around the world, Averett said.

The Troy Kiwanis Club’s mission is to improve the lives of children in the community by promoting literacy.

Those who are interested in joining the Troy Kiwanis Club are encouraged to let their interests be made known.

The Troy Kiwanis Club meets at 6:30 p.m. the first and third Tuesdays of the month in the backroom of The Half Shell.
