Shrewsbury – Fans of all sorts of vehicles enjoyed the opportunity to see them up close and personal at the Leicester/ Spencer Fraternal Order of the Eagles #4541’s Classic Car Show at the Hebert Candy Mansion Aug. 18. 72 vehicles were entered into the show, which was entitled, “Meeting of the Minds,” with prizes given out in a number of categories.

The event was organized by Eagles’ members Dan and Shelly Travers, in honor of Shelly’s father, Donald P. Doherty, who passed away in 2002 from a brain aneurysm. Both Shelley and her brother Donald, have also had brain aneurysms.

The event also featured a 50/50 raffle, live DJ, food and beverage vendors, and children’s activities.

All proceeds will go to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.

Rob and Stephanie Stacy won a trophy for Best Ford for their 1949 F1.
