BHS Football Car Show A 4th of July Event

The Buffalo High School football team’s fourth annual car show was held in conjunction with the town’s Independence Day activities on Saturday, July 3. Trophies were given out for each decade starting with the 1920’s. There were also divisions for Best Paint, Best Theme, Best in Show, and People’s Choice, a new category which was just introduced this year.

Wayne Childers of Scott Depot won Best in Show with his cream and purple 1932 Ford, and Steve Holsten of Whitesville won People’s Choice with his 1969 blue and white Camaro 2-28. A total of seventy-three vehicles were entered into the car show.

The event also featured a raffle with over seventy items which were donated by parents and local businesses. Some of the items offered included gift certificates to local businesses and events, such as football games and the Putnam County Fair; jewelry and other handcrafted items; home and yard décor, automotive supplies, and themed gift baskets. Proceeds from the event went to the football booster program, which helps with travel, food, and equipment expenses.
