2017 Cruise - in - the Park

Music, Fun, and Helping a Good Cause

On June 11, 2017, the Dingman Township Parks and Recreation Commission held its 2nd Annual Cruise-in-the-Park car show and live music event.  Co-sponsored by American Legion Post #139 and Milford Chrysler, the event raised money to help America's veterans.

Over 40 cars were entered competing for prizes in various categories with John Pearson's 1930 Ford Model A coupe winning best in show.  But the real winners were the nation's veterans with thousands of dollars raised by the event and raffle ticket sales to support Vet Stock USA,  Combat Vets PA Chapter 22-7 and other worthy veteran's charities.  A special thanks goes to Steve and Cindy Webber who donated a portion of the proceeds of every Kona Ice they sold.

Through the arrangements made of Robert Scotti and Dawn Goebel, music was provided throughout the day by Whiskey Crossing, the Chris Raabe Band and CBX.

The Dingman Township Parks and Recreation Commission would like to thank the following sponsors of the 2017 Cruise-in-the-Park:
