Lakers host 24th Annual Spring Roundup

By all accounts, the weekend’s 24th Annual Lakers Car Club Spring Roundup was a huge success.

Lakers Car Club president Sam Schellenberg spoke with the Tribune Sunday afternoon, and said the club couldn’t be happier with how things went, especially Sunday’s Show and Shine in downtown Williams Lake.

“I’m just really impressed with the turnout,” he said, as hundreds of people filled city streets to check out the more than 200 cars, trucks and bikes on display.

This year’s Show and Shine featured a popular silent auction with many items donated by local businesses up for grabs.

There was also a raffle prize draw for a 1930s-style wooden roadster built by Lakers Car Club member Chris Knight and won by Williams Lake’s Karen Hagen.

Saturday, a poker run, cruise of the town from the Tourism Discovery Centre and a dinner at the Ramada were the featured events. Winning the poker run and $250 was Diane Lamothe. Second went to Tony Poole (150) and Neil Muir was third ($75).
