Reindeer Block Party

On Sunday was the Uptown Village Association annual Reindeer Block Party. This annual community event for families kicks off the Christmas season on Main Street. A group of Slo Poks helped in setup and teardown of the well attended Sunday afternoon event. 

Kruze for the Kidz

On Saturday was the Road Master's annual Kruze for the Kidz car party at Benny's Rod and Custom Pizza. The show benefits Open House Ministries that cares for homeless families in Vancouver. At the Alley before the show, the hat was passed and $175 was collected and presented to the show. The attendance was good inspite of the rain. The draw of the hot rod community and the one time a year Benny's serves breakfast  brings the die hard rodders out.
Thanks to the Road Masters for their faithfulness to put this show on for  a great cause, rain or shine.

Slo Poks visit Hough Elementary

On a sunny Thursday afternoon on the 12th of September, a group of Slo Poks paraded to Hough Elementary to deliver the goodies from the Uptown Show and Shine.  The guys were greeted by the student body who got get a up close and personal experience with an assortment of hot rods.  They not only got to see the hot rods, not only touch them, but they got to sit in them, take pictures and honk horns.  It was a great opportunity to give the kids a fun experience with old school hot rods. . . gotta train up the next generation!
The Poks presented a show proceeds check, an envelope with the $465 cash collected at the show and boxes of school supplies.  The goodies were presented the Hough Foundation and Hough Elementary Faculty and Staff.
It was a fun afternoon for the students, Hough faculty and Slo Poks.  Thanks to the guys that put so many hours in to make this benefit event a reality!
