Historical Society Moves Father’s Day Breakfast to the Fall
The Holliston Historical Society Father’s Day Car Show is scheduled this year on October 3, 2021. Who knew that the lockdown would be over on May 30th?
Due to the lockdown, the Historical Society had to cancel almost all of the scheduled events since March of 2020, creating a financial crisis that required dipping into savings to pay bills while postponing maintenance and repairs. The car show is one of the major fund-raising events thanks to the sponsors, the drivers and the public that comes every year to admire the vehicles and enjoy an old fashion breakfast in the barn.
This show is different from most car shows in many ways. First, it is over in about two hours, 8 to 10AM, to allow fathers to attend the show and get back home into to celebrate Father’s Day. Second, there are no classes to judge and no rules. The trophies are awarded by the sponsors for any reason and the winners are asked to talk about their ride. There is even a “Heart & Soul” trophy given to the person who worked hard to build what he drove to the show. Last, but not least, there is no entry fee. We just ask that everyone come hungry and buy breakfast in the barn. So, bring your ride, bring your friends, and have a hearty breakfast while you view the cars and grounds at the Asa Whiting House, 547 Washington Street.
This year the sponsor list has grown to 16 companies and individuals: Corcorna & Havlin / Hagerty Insurance Co, Quality Auto Body, Keystone Automotive, Authentic Auto Body, Hometown Auto Body, Roadmaster Sales & Service, Vintage Motorsports, Kiddi-Fenwal, The Jid Kamidian Family, Roses Automotive (Heart & Soul Award) and Medfield on the Charles Car Show. New this year are Mark Dellicker Construction, Green Plumbng and Heating, Chipman Electric, BDR Automotive and AH Car Storage. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
The Mission of the Holliston Historical Society is to help enrich the life of our community by promoting historical preservation and by sharing Holliston’s past and current history through research, publications, exhibits, programs, events, and education.
