ALBION – Bullard Park hosted a classic car show on Saturday that drew 73 participants to the village-owned site on Route 31.

David Mitchell and Becky Karls, both from the Christopher Mitchell Funeral Homes, are pictured in front of a 1929 Ford Model A Roadster owned by Sam Seager of Albion.

Karls organizes the event as a benefit for Hospice of Orleans. Christopher Mitchell is the main sponsor of the car show.

Karls has been organizing the car shows for Hospice for three years. Saturday’s show was the first time it was located at Bullard Park after the first two years along East State Street.

The show included food, music and raffle tickets.

Darren Roberts is pictured with a 1951 Ford that was owned by his father, the late Lynn Roberts, a prominent local farmer. Darren put new license plates on the car in memory of one of his father’s favorite sayings: “Burning Daylight.”
