Cars, hula hoops, pin-up girls come to DC Legion

It could have been a scene from

summers-gone-by earlier this month as vintage and classic cars, hula hoops and pin-up girls were at the Dodge Center American Legion Post.

The evening was the latest in a series of summer car shows at the Legion Post.

According to Steve Peterson of Hay-

eld, who is the organizer for the events, four shows were originally scheduled. The rst show was scheduled for June 4 but was rained out. It was rescheduled for the next week but again the weather was a problem and attendance was min- imal although six people did show up for a bratwurst eating contest.

The weather was much better in July

when 68 cars were on display and those

attending were invited to participate in what was billed as therst-ever apple pie eating contest in Dodge Center.

The cars and the people were back in August for not only the car show but this time two contests hula hoop com- petition for both youngsters and adults and a pin-up girl contest.

Colton Smisek was also on hand to provide music.

The summer fun is not over yet.

The season nale will take everyone back to the 50s with a High School Sock Hop Dance on Saturday, Sept. 14.

Featured contest will be for the best

50s dress. The nale will begin at 6:30 and continue until 11:30 p.m. and will feature music and dancing inside the Legion hall.

In addition to Peterson and the Le- gion, the car shows are sponsored by Hardware Hank, Citizens Bank, Harolds Club,  Weber, Leth & Woessner, LowellAuto Sales and Huckleberry.
