Some things just get better over time! Rockn' Round the Block is an example - the great people at Northwest Motor Sports who started and spent years perfecting this great Gresham Event in Historic Downtown are to be commended.

Now another wonderful set of volunteers have taken it over and it is going to be all that is was and more!! More cars, trucks, vintage, custom, specialty, and classic vehicles all lined up ready for you to view. In addition, there will be food, prizes and lots of other stuff to do. We encourage you to take time to cool off in one of the great new pubs in and surrounding downtown!

Now, this FREE event would be great even if it wasn't raising money for local students but add that to the mix now it is a huge WINNER!! Yes all the proceeds from the PATICIPANTS and SPONSORS go to provide scholarships to the Automotive Program at Mt. Hood Community College. For every seven trained auto technicians that are retiring there is only one coming on board. So, these programs are desperate to get young people enrolled and on their way to good productive careers with good financial benefits. As a matter of fact, Automotive News listed one of the top challenges facing our industry is trained technicians!!

So, don't forget- Historic Downtown Gresham from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. this Saturday August 10th – come on down to "Cruzin' the Block". For more information call 503-927-2030. Stroll, shop and Dine Local….and visit our Gresham Ford Display – I hear they are going to have some fun prizes!!
