On what was a damp and miserable day, music added levity to the D.W. Poppy Secondaryâ€™s annual car show.
The Doorsâ€™ Riders on the Storm, directly followed by Johnny Nashâ€™s I Can See Clearly Now (The Rain is Gone) poured from the loudspeakers, as visitors braved a steady stream of raindrops to peruse several rows of classic cars and hot rods.
About 60 vehicles were entered in the show, as well as the Langley Good Times Cruise-In and Langley Speedway Historical Society.
A total of $1,000 was raised for D.W. Poppy Secondary programs including dry grad, the schoolâ€™s basketball teams, and its technology program.
â€œOur technology programs are raising money for a trailer for the [schoolâ€™s] race car so they can start taking the car to races, a 3D printer, as well as money to upgrade the dust collection system and electrical in the shops to handle the new machinery,â€ show organizer Marlene Yakabuski said.
Yakabuski sent out a â€œbig thanksâ€ to the showâ€™s sponsors and donors.
â€œWe look forward to sunnier skies next year,â€ she added.
