D.W. Poppy Secondary is getting ready to host its 29th annual Car Show on Sunday May 1st!
Our tradition of putting on one of the first car shows of the season brings many benefits for the school. We hope to see over 700 cars on display in our school back field, and welcome thousands of spectators.
This is a family friendly all ages event. We are hoping to increase our spectator traffic this year to enjoy our show that includes up to 700 collector cars, vendors, concession, 50/50 draws, car show tshirt sales and more. The event is our school’s biggest fundraiser and benefits our entire school including the shop and computer ed departments, athletic teams, dry grad and many others.
The shop and tech ed departments are able to purchase tools and technology that are used for the student’s projects and around the school – this year the wish list includes a vinyl cutter, a large format printer, an auto shop oil collection system and monitors for the hallways in the school.
By volunteering to help with the show, it teaches our students the value of contributing to, and being part of a community and the importance of giving back. Their volunteer time at the car show offers them increased opportunities thru the school that enrich their academic experience such as athletic trips to Hawaii, the school race car, Dry Grad celebration and more. You will find students helping out on the day of the show at the concession, the gates, on the grounds and during setup/clean up.
It is also an opportunity for the school to connect and network with the local community – this year we are again looking forward to welcoming the Fort Langley Lions Club who will be offering a pancake breakfast in the morning to our exhibitors and spectators.
Preregistration for cars is $10 and is now open and available in person at the school office from 7:45- 3:15 Monday- Friday or online thru http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2503661.
We hope that you are able to come out and join us Sunday May 1st from 10 am to 3 pm.
