Hudson – Antique trucks of all kinds were on display Sunday at the Antique Truck Show sponsored by the Hudson-Concord Elks Lodge 959. The show drew in hundreds of truck aficionados all eager to see the vehicles up close and personal at the Lodge's 99 Park St. location. Vehicles ranged from classic Fords and Chevys, fire trucks, utility trucks, busses, and military jeeps.
While most trucks were just on display, there were a few for sale. Some attendees took the opportunity to thoroughly check out trucks and talk to their owners while others just enjoyed viewing the wide variety of vehicles present. A number of vendors also participated in the show, selling everything from t-shirts to car parts and supplies.
Ray Dube, an Esteemed Leading Knight and second in command at the Lodge, noted the show serves as a major fundraiser for the Elks Scholarship Fund.
“The Elks have given over $1 million in scholarships over the years,” he added, “due in part to events like this. ”
“Today's response has been great,” he said, “thanks to the people showing their trucks and all of the people attending.”
