Want to do a good deed and show off your hot rod in Encinitas? Friday June 12th, picnic with some oldtimers

Need a few more cars to make 10 - Almost anything works - could use some pre 50's and 70's as well.

FRIDAY: - JUNE 12TH at 10:30 - 2:PM

NOT A SHOW: - One prize , no cost - just lunch and a smile
WHERE: Silverado Senior Living - memory Impaired facility, Encinitas
WHY: "...A real world time machine - like a vintage car can trigger a life altering memory response ..." John Daly- UCSD Geriatric Medicine, director at Silverado.

WHO: we did this for the first time last year - "A concrete reminder of earlier times, a piece of living history, the sound, the look, smell and color can spark the memory and brain to refunction" - it works. No particular club this time- last year was Heartbeat Classics.

Not only were the patients, staff, families and guests very appreciate... they had good food and many dressed in 50's fun. Just merely showing up and parking our cars had a profound effect on many patients. Nice people, good fun, EZ and especially endearing outcome.

Thanks to Encinitas Foriegn for showing up with the fresh gellato machine. Jimmy from Rancho Autobody, Larry Johnson, Steve Deering , Roy Tucker, Bob Brown and others I don't know but arrived anyway.

LOCATION
: 335 Saxony Road -across from ECKE YMCA two blocks north of 5 and Encinitas Blvd.
THE PRIZE: The look on their faces and the funny stories when they remember. The family and staff appreciation.

Just call me or email
