It was just a wonderful night all around. The participants enjoyed swapping stories about their cruisers. Many spectators enjoyed walking through the rows of vehicles and talking to the owners.
“Keepin’ Up with the Jones’s” Food truck out of Cedar Rapids was available for spectators and participants to purchase food and beverage. They were busy all the time and commented they would be back for the June Cruise In.
“Wade’s” Golf cart was driven by CCC members to transport participants up to the Mall Entrance and back.
Mary McCarthy was the Iowa City Hospice volunteer representative to provide information about Iowa City Hospice. We always enjoy having Mary.
We again want to thank the member volunteers who came early to help set up and those who assisted in the tear down. We hope we can count on them in the future and hope that other members will consider assisting. This makes the cruise ins more enjoyable for everyone.
We cannot forget our many sponsors; they make our cruise ins one of the best in eastern Iowa. We also want to thank the Coral Ridge Mall for allowing us to have our Cruise Ins there.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the next cruise in June 28th
