BOUNTIFUL—Members of the Centerville-Farmington Rotary club held a successful fundraiser featuring classic automobiles. The event at Culver’s in Bountiful on April 26 featured nearly 30 classic cars and brought in customers to both the show and the fast food eatery all night long.

“There was an $800 donation from Culver’s for our efforts,” said club spokesman Matt Eddington. “We had cars from the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Some were in original condition and some were hot rods, and everyone was surprised to see so many cars.”

Bob West and Dale Thomas of the Rotary club featured cars in the show, and Scoot, the mascot from Culver’s, was there to meet families and pose for photos.

Eddington said the money raised will be used for the club’s children’s literacy program, helping with its goal to give a book to every child who is a patient at Lakeview Hospital.

Members of the Centerville-Farmington Rotary participated in the Utah Rotary District #5420 Annual District Conference in West Valley City. The three-day conference wraps up Saturday, May 14, with a number of service projects providing hands-on assistance to those suffering food insecurity, victims of domestic violence, and veterans who have served our nation. 

Other upcoming club events are a spring cleanup and planting on May 19 at the Freedom Hills Park Veterans Monument, a sorting project on May 26 at the Bountiful Food Pantry, and the annual club installation banquet on June 2 and Oakridge Country Club in Farmington. λ
