‘Brattleboro on Wheels’ rolls into Retreat Farm on June 29

BRATTLEBORO—The fifth annual Brattleboro on Wheels car show, presented by the Brattleboro Rotary Club in conjunction with the Now & Then Car Club, will be held Saturday, June 29, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Retreat Farm on Route 30 just north of town.

Admission to the grounds is free, both for show cars and spectators. Donations are appreciated. Admission is charged for the Retreat Farm’s petting zoo.

All makes and models of cars, motorcycles, and bicycles are welcome at the show, which is being held at the Retreat Farm for the second time.

According to a news release, Retreat Farm, Ltd. is restoring and repurposing one of Vermont’s leading historic farmsteads as a center for education, recreation, farming, processing, markets, and events — where people connect to the land and each other.

The cruise-in show is sponsored by River Valley Credit Union, Summit Chrysler, Noyes VW, Wells Fargo, The Richards Group, Cota & Cota, Vermont Co-op Insurance, Windham Coach & Carriage, Best Septic, Runnings, and the Retreat Farm.

All proceeds from the show go to Rotary community gift-giving and youth-related projects.

Music will be provided by DJ Tim Johnson. A 50-50 raffle will be held on-site, and there will be opportunities to win numerous prizes through other drawings.

Lunch will be available through the American Legion, which will also be hosting activities for kids. VT Gelato and Dosa Kitchen’s food truck will be available. For more information, visit the Brattleboro on Wheels Facebook page.

Founded in 1950, the Brattleboro Rotary Club is a community service club of more than 60 members who engage in community and human service projects locally and internationally. For more information, visit www.brattlebororotaryclub.org.
