"Camp Happy Days" Car Show a Success!!

Today we participated in the 26th Annual Southern Drag Racing Association's Car Show to raise money for "Camp Happy Days". Ninety entries competed in multiple classes and the competition was tough. Our Team was honored to have David Reindollar, of the North Charleston Fire Department, join our display with his tribute fire bike and, not surprisingly, he took top honors in his class. Congratulations and thanks to David and his son for being a part of a successful day! Check out the photos here but especially the one of David and his son admiring their trophy.  A special day that reminds us of why we do this.
