MRSS show and shine

The 6th annual Maple Ridge secondary show will be on Sunday rain or shine.

Maple Ridge secondary will host its 6th annual Show and Shine Car Show on Sunday, May 29, rain or shine.

The high school’s 2016 dry grad committee is hosting the event, which will feature the car show, both new and classic models – cars, trucks and motorcycles, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

As well, the event will have prizes, a silent auction, live music, and vendors – including, for the first time, a mini food truck festival.

“As local business owners, we’re happy to get involved in this great community event,” said Dan Beitel, vice-president of the Fraser Valley Food Truck Association and owner of Hunger Management.

Proceeds from the event will fund the 27th annual alcohol and drug free dry grad event for MRSS in June.

“Fundraising is a big part of making dry grad amazing for our kids,” said Shayley Nielsen, an organizer. “Without support from the community, we couldn’t make it happen.”

• For more information, email Nielsen at nshaylay@yahoo.ca or call the school at 604-463-4175.
