KRUSIN' KLASSICS FUN RUN - MAY 30- 31, 2014
Old Man Weather cooperated!!!!!
Friday night began with a parade of cars. The participants lined up in Ludington Park at 6PM and the parade began at 7PM, flowing West from Ludington Park, turning North on Stephenson Avenue, bearing right on to Sheridan road and continuing on through Wells out to the highway.

Congrats to the satisfied participants....and.....condolensces to those who've been humbled. That's why Dynos are affectionately known as "The Heartbreakers". ;)

A Women's appreciation luncheon was held in the Butler building at noon on Saturday, and the village at the south end of the grounds was open for your enjoyment as well..
Kids competed in a pedal tractor pull, and displays and numerous other activities took place throughout the day. There were 20 voter's choices picks and 5 specialty trophies handed out to vehicles chosen by sponsors and special event crews.
