Lake Country Classics Car Club donates $1,000 to Rainbow Room


Lake Country Classics Car Club recently presented a $1,000 check to Rainbow Room Chairman Sam Scroggins. The gift represents proceeds from the club’s successful 2018 car show held Oct. 20 at Gov. Jim Hogg Park in Quitman.
In making the presentation, club President Larry Barnes said, “Our club is proud to present this gift in support of the significant role the Rainbow Room and their volunteers provides to needy youth in Wood County. Our club received tremendous support from area businesses and organizations, which allowed us to host one of East Texas’s best classic car events. As a result of this support, it is our honor to support organizations like the Rainbow Room, which provides an outstanding service thanks to their volunteers and other agencies in our area.”
The Rainbow Room is a resource center where Child Protective Services caseworkers can get supplies for children who are victims of abuse or neglect – clothing, school supplies, diapers, and much more.
Attending the event were Scroggins along with several Rainbow Room board members, Barnes, and car club members Darrell Slabaugh, R.T. and Sherry Bridges, and Chuck Holt, who drove their classic vehicles to the presentation.
The Lake Country Classics Car Club includes Wood County members who have a passion for classic cars and an interest in preservation of classic vehicles. Club members host and attend car shows, host a cruise night at the Quitman Dairy Queen on the fourth Thursday each month from March through August, support Toys for Tots, and participate in parades and nursing home visits, cruises and social events. Family membership fees are $25 per year. The 2019 Car Show is scheduled for Oct. 19, at Gov. Jim Hogg Park, Quitman. More information is available at or by contacting any club member.
