July 17th, CCC Cruise to Cedar Rapids Retirement Homes

        Saturday, July 17th, Classy Chassy Cruisers was asked by Leslie Croy to do a cruise to Cottage Grove Place, Cedar Rapids and we therefore included three other area Retirement Homes – “The Views of Marion”; “Grand Living at Indian Creek; and “Garnett Place”. Members near Iowa City left the Highlander at 9:30a to cruise to Cedar Rapids; and members from the surrounding area of Cedar Rapids were asked to meet at Cottage Grove Place at 10:30a to begin the cruise to bring memories and joy to the residents, We had twelve Classics/Cruisers join in. We cruised around twice slowly, and many residents thanked us for coming. Our cruise took us from 1st Street, Mt. Vernon to Mt Vernon Road to Forrest Drive, Cedar Rapids. There are some beautiful older homes on Forrest Drive and then we went past Historic Brucemore. Another beautiful drive was on 29th/30th Street to East Post Road, keeping a watchful eye out for deer and turkey. We crossed Highway 100 to “The Views of Marion”. Cruising around the building and around the circles where the residents were sitting with smiles and waving. Next, we went back out on to Highway 100 to “Grand Living at Indian Creek” around the building and circle where many residents and staff were lined up with smiles. Then we cruised back up 1st Avenue to 35th Street turning to “Garnett Place”. All the residents enjoyed viewing the Classics/Cruisers. We finished our cruise at the “Starlight Room” to gather and eat lunch. They had a room that 23 members enjoyed sharing stories and updating each other. The service was fantastic, and the food was great. A Dairy Queen is located in front of the “Starlight Room” and you guessed it, some members couldn’t pass ice cream up.

June 13th, Sunday was another "HOT" day in the 90's.  We had nine classic/cruisers join us on the cruise to the area Nursing/Assisted Living/ and Retirement Homes.  There were many residents out to enjoy our cruise around their facilities.
