May 3, 2014 - Elks's Lodge 1625's 4th Annual Car show
Lancaster Elks Lodge was proud to host its fourth annual classic car show, Saturday, May 3rd, amid a beautiful sunny day.  For lodge member and car show chairman K.J. Miller, "it's a good day" as he stood by his 1957 Ford Fairlane "hard top."  This popular charity event raises funds for various Elks efforts as well as lodge maintenance and operations.  In addition to the beautiful cars, the public was treated to exhibitions of restored vintage tractors, engines, a modular train display, raffles, a silent auction food and a disc jockey.  It appeared "a good day" was had by all.
