Rosedale

The 2013 POKER RUN

Brockville’s Waterfront Car Show
TANTALIZER

This year's Poker Run was all about

THE POWER OF MUSCLE

-- but it's not what you think ! --

AWESOME cars came from as far as Napanee, Elliot Lake, Montreal, and Syracuse, to participate. There sure were a lot of smiling faces when all was said and done.

Shown above is one of the thrilled residents of the Rosedale Retirement Centre. Oh - the memories that were jogged when this BelAir drove through ... !

What participants did not know, was why they were taken on a detour through a residential neighbourhood.

Two days before, TISMA received a call from someone asking if we could change the Poker Run route. Why ? His father-in-law, a long time AUTOMOTION supporter, was battling throat cancer and the depression that came with it.

TO ALL PARTICIPATING DRIVERS:

THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH !!!

You have no idea how much your fellow enthusiast appreciated what you did to lift his spirits. His wife can't thank you enough. His daughter, her husband, their children, all thank you from the bottom of their hearts.

Even the neighbours had a great time. You see, they were told you were coming - not by us. They knew, because the family needed places to park their other cars so that Dad's 2 year old Camaro could be proudly displayed at the end of their driveway as a salute. Half of you didn't see that because they moved it away when they thought everything was done. Lo and behold four more groups showed up. They were overwhelmed !!!

And when one of you put on "a little show", Dad stood up and clapped, absolutely thrilling the family.

DRIVERS BE PROUD !

TODAY YOU BROUGHT SOME MUCH NEEDED JOY INTO PEOPLE'S LIVES.

- and you thought you were

"JUST GOING FOR A DRIVE" !
