The Delta Street Rodders stage the biggest, shiniest car show in Delta every summer.
Besides attracting car enthusiasts and their custom project vehicles from around the region, the event draws visitors to Delta for the day.
The Delta Street Rodders provide other benefits to the community from their annual show. This year, for the ninth time, the club has donated proceeds from the event to local charities and to a scholarship at the Delta-Montrose Technical College.
The money is what is left over in the club checkbook after all expenses of the show have been paid. Club members vote each year to choose local org-anizations they want to donate to.
The Delta Food Pantry, a regular recipient of the members' generosity, received a $500 donation from the club this year.
The Volunteers of America CommUnity Meals program and its Meals on Wheels service also received a $500 donation earlier this year.
Then last week, members of the club gathered at the Delta-Montrose Technical College to present a third $500 award to the school's scholarship fund. It is the third year the Delta Street Rodders have had a local scholarship on their list.
The scholarship money will be distributed within the automotive technician program and used to help pay costs of the certificate being pursued by Christopher Prough of Cedaredge.
The Delta Street Rodders' upcoming 2013 show, the club's 10th annual event, will be staged once again at Confluence Park on July 27.
Members are hoping for 100 entries this year for an event that has grown to become a real community celebration with music, food vendors, door prizes, and lots of shiny projects to admire.
The show schedule follows: registration 9 a.m.; show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. registration is $20 at the show, or $15 early registration until July 17. There will be a preregistration gathering on Friday, July 26, at Sonic Drive-In, 5:30-7 p.m.
