A.C.E. Car Show in Review

Home > News and Events

Well I hope you didn’t miss this year's festivities. The weather was perfect, the cars were spectacular and the crowd was large. Thank you to all who put this on and the local business for their support of our community events.

As a new member to our community I was taken back by the friendliness and family feeling this event portrayed. The youth were involved at every turn and that is so important for our future.

From all accounts the different planned activities had good participation. The 4-on-4 volleyball tournament was a success, the Fireman’s breakfast was very well attended, the concert and dinner went well.

From what I hear they are already thinking about next year's fun in the sun. Hope you all will attend and / or participate in the coming years. Thank you to all of our Veterans for their dedication and sacrifices for all!!

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance of those who have gone before us and to those who serve our great nation. I am proud to say that my parents and grandparents have served our country as did many of you reading this or have family that have or currently do.

I also believe that Memorial Day is a day to celebrate the good things in life and enjoy family and friends. The car show here in Echo was a great example of that community thankfulness and that is something our community can hold up and be proud of. As we move into the busy summer months, remember to take time for family and friends, it's so important to make that a priority when we can.
