This event brings a lot of smiles and happiness during the Christmas season to all of the families of the residents at the veterans home. This year, the car show raised thousands of dollars to put toward the Santa Zone to help our nation’s hero’s give Christmas gifts to their loved ones.

The Veterans Car show was a huge success this year due to of all the community sponsors, volunteers and staff at the Central Utah Veterans Home. Eathan Gognia was a huge part of this year’s show. He volunteered his time doing an Eagle Scout Project to help advertise and raise funds for the car show. Eathan and his Scout troup spent hours going to local businesses, other car shows and all around the community handing out flyers and information about the show. Other big supporters were the staff at the Central Utah Veterans Home and many local businesses; Local Cheddar, Lulu’s Craft Corner, Arrowhead Upholstery, Utah Avenue Insurance, the Provo Elks Lodge, Serve Daily and the Payson Chronicle were very helpful in recruiting and advertising and helping the show be such a great success.

r

The 2016 Central Utah Veterans Home Car Show had thousands of people in attendance from the community and approximately 110 classic cars on display. It also had the support of more than 30 local businesses that provided carnival booths, games, activities, prizes and treats for everyone.

r

The veterans were all smiles throughout the day from the cruise around Lincoln Beach to dunking Chris Baird in the Serve Daily Dunk Booth.

We want give a special thanks to everyone who gave so much time and effort to this great event and showed support our nation’s heroes and their families.
