St. James Episcopal Church's sun-filled Saturday, July 27, 2013 Lake George Hot Rod Happenings car show was followed by a rain out for the Sunday portion of the event. However, amidst this challenge, the show was able to generate about $2700 income for the Church and its Outreach Ministries.
Unfortunately, we will not host the event in the years ahead. The fees paid to The Village and County exceeded the proceeds made from the event. A Warren County initiated 40% increase in per-day rental costs in this weather-dependent venture makes it unwise to continue for the purposes we intend. We remain grateful for your support. Our donations the last four years to organizations serving the needs of individuals and families in the Lake George Region will surpass $5000 including proceeds from this year’s show. We conclude our Car Show venture with pride in the business partnerships forged, car community friendships developed and the difference one small church can make in service to others.
