Plans finalized for car, quilt, motorcycle shows

By DARLEEN TUCKER
TACC Secretary

Thorndale Area Chamber of Commerce is putting the finishing touches on their third annual Car/Quilt Show to be held on Saturday, March 24. Make plans now to attend this fun-filled day in downtown Thorndale.

TACC raffle quilt, “The Wild Thing,” is in the process of being quilted at Quilting by Donna Lou in Thorndale by Donna Johnston. The raffle tickets will be ready this week and can be purchased from any chamber director and at business locations around town. The quilt is constructed of 100 percent cotton material in the Carpenter’s Star pattern using hot pink giraffe print, black and white zebra print and black to create an interesting pinwheel pattern.

The quilt will also have its own custom bag which is being constructed by Sarah Beard. Look through your closets and find that quilt that is a family heirloom, or one made especially for this event, and send in your entry today. For information on the Quilt Show, contact Darleen Tucker at 512- 898-2727.

The third annual Classic Car Show and Louis Run Motorcycle events will line the streets in downtown Thorndale on FM 486 South. Entries are already coming in, so if you have a car or a bike you would like to enter in the competition, contact Trey Felton at 512-638-5958 or Jason Ramirez at 512-898-5387.

The arts and crafts fair will be in the downtown area on FM 486 South along both sides of the highway and will feature arts and crafts from all around the central Texas area. Come out and browse our craft booths and don’t forget to check out our local merchants for their unusual and unique wares. Arts and crafts sign up contact is Susan Drabek at 512-269-8796.

The events of the day are a fund-raiser for a scholarship for a deserving senior at Thorndale High School and to fund other community projects of the TACC. Plan to join us in this fun-filled day and bring your entire family. There will be something for everyone.
