Mainstreet Memories Donates $24,000 to Council on Aging

The Council on Aging Inc. serving St. Clair County received a special gift Monday night through the Mainstreet Memories Car Show. The Council on Aging’s Executive Director, Scott Crawford, was presented a check for $24,000 on behalf of the car show’s board of directors. According to the organization, the four year total raised for the Council on Aging from the Mainstreet Memories Car Show now equals $63,709. The donations that contributed to the gift to the Council on Aging came from car show sponsors, participants, and the community. Main Street Memories will be planning the fifth year for the show in 2020. Ron Steward, President of Mainstreet Memories, said the event had taken place years ago, but it fizzled out. He and others restarted the event in 2016, and it has grown from 200 cars the first year to over 600 cars in 2019.
