Description: On July 15th Big Horn 4x4s and Southern Colorado Mopars sponsored a 'Show n Shine' at the Bruce McCandless Veterans Home in Florence, CO. The clubs rallied at multiple locations on the way to the show, and we all converged at the Home at about 0945. Attending from the BH4x4s were Colin, George, and me and Ben all with our Jeeps. The weather was perfect and the Veterans and staff were very happy to see the beautiful musclecars and big 4x4s, and the stories about "I used to have one just like that!" or "my brother in law had one...but it wasn't a Hemi", and we enjoyed talking with the Vets for nearly an hour. The BBQ lunch was provided by the staff, and after combining donations from both clubs as well as the vehicle owners we were able to provide the Home a record high donation of $340 dollars - money directly used to provide the Vets a nice dinner out or movie or ice cream at their favorite place.

After lunch the residents made their way back inside and that was our signal that we were cleared to depart for home. It rained in bucket-loads on the way back but it didn't dampen the truly rewarding feelings we always come away with after this event. Thanks to all that attended, and for sure we'll have the event again next year in case you missed it.
