MassBay Presents the Third Annual All-Vehicle Show May 18th
    Proceeds to benefit student scholarships    

(Ashland, MA –Friday May 9, 2014) – MassBay Community College will host the second annual All-Vehicle Show on Sunday May 18th from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm at their Automotive Technology Center, 250 Eliot Street in Ashland.  The show features vehicles of all genres – from 1930s roadsters to 1970s muscle cars.  The audience will vote for the top 25 and the People’s Choice Award, and MassBay alumni will vote for the Alumni Choice Awards.

 
“This is a terrific event that brings out a lot of people from the region, and a lot of phenomenal vehicles,” said Howard Ferris, Dean of MassBay’s Division of Transportation & Energy.  “And while we all enjoy spending the day admiring the vehicles, we also don’t lose sight of the reason we’re there: to raise needed funds for student scholarships.”

 
The event is free and open to the public.  Registering your vehicle costs $10.  For more information contact John Gallagher at jgallagher@massbay.edu, or by calling (781) 239-3045.
