140 year of Shriners

140 year of Shriners

Monday, July 13, 2009


The Shriners may wear funny-looking hats, but their purpose and mission is no laughing matter. For the second year in a row, truckers joined together in Galt, California on May 29-30 to raise money for a good cause - and to have a good time! And with over 100 cool trucks, a few awesome hot rods, perfect weather, a party-like atmosphere and plenty of food and drink, what more could you ask for?

Although this show has been around for a while, it is only the second year that it has been held at the Galt Flea Market, which is a great, fully-paved venue. And for the eighth year in a row, all of the proceeds from this show went to Shriners Hospitals for Children. It is kind of strange to see Shriners walking around a truck show wearing their weird-shaped hats with tassels, but it is kind of neat at the same time. At many of the charity events we attend, we often do not see anyone from the benefitting organization in attendance, but at this one, the Shriners were out there in full force, helping out where they could, educating the public and supporting the event.

Pick up a copy of the July 10-4 magazine, for the rest of this artical and pictures of trucks from Ca.,Nv.,Or.
