Photos in the “2009 Paw Paw Memorial Day Weekend Car Show” Album
Description: On May 23, 2009, the 5th annual Paw Paw Memorial Day Weekend Car Show and 50th annual Memorial Day Parade was held. We had 58 cars registered plus 3 unregistered (2 were mine). The parade was one of the largest and best that anyone remembers. The weather was beautiful - mid 80's with bright sunshine and puffy white clouds. The location is perfect for a car show, with a newly constructed covered stage and the countryside is absolutely stunning. The drive to the show from any direction takes you along two-lane mountain roads, and when you get to Paw Paw you are in the Potomac River valley surrounded by mountains. Take a look at the pictures and plan to make the trip next year.
The money from the show registration is used to offset the cost of the show and parade. It's never enough to pay for it all, but we beg, borrow and steal the money from other places to make up the difference. We also took up a special donation for the American Legion Post 128 to help pay for flags for veteran's graves.
