Car Club

BRODHEAD – Members of the Blue Ribbon Classic Chevy Club from Orfordville met in Brodhead Sunday afternoon, Aug. 16, stopping at Main Street Station for ice cream treats.

With a current membership of about 20 families, the club was formed in 1975 by three brothers, Arnie, Don and Harold Thompson. Although it is a 1955-57 classic Chevy club, they are open to all makes and models. New members are always welcome.

Annual events include helping at the Beloit Autorama, a fall cruise, participation in the Adopt-A-Highway program, and a Christmas party. Club members meet the second Sunday of every month at 6 p.m. Dues are $24 a year with a $15 initiation fee which includes a club plaque.
