Hadley’s 13th annual car show drew out 77 of the shiny classic cruisers. The event raised $2,330 which will go to help out this year’s Holiday Depot, helping needy area families to have happy holidays. “It was tremendous,” said organizer Steve Hillman, noting there were plenty of different vehicles at this year’s show. “The day was nice, everybody seemed to enjoy themselves.” Hadley’s 13th annual car show drew out 77 of the shiny classic cruisers.

The Gathering Ladies of Hadley filled the Old Town Hall with colorful quilts, many of them destined to become donations to the Whaley House in Flint.

At left, Isabella Vartanian, age 7, Evie Watts, 3, and Oscar Vartanian, 5, had fun at the booth of Tammi Couture from Burton. One of Couture’s concrete casts from natural plants created a little pond upon which floated tea lights. “They’re like little boats,” the happy kids said, as they sailed them around the imaginary lake.
