The Antique Automobile Club of America’s (AACA) Southeastern Fall Meet is this weekend in Bradley County.  This event is hosted by our local club, the Cherokee Valley Region Antique Automobile Club of America. 

 

The visitors will begin arriving on Thursday afternoon with the public events kicking off on Friday evening.  The antique cars will converge around the Courthouse Square for music and entertainment from 6:00-9:00 pm.  While downtown, participants are encouraged to choose one of our downtown restaurants for dinner.   

 

The Museum Center at 5ive Points is hosting “Barbeque and Bluegrass” to coincide with the AACA events on Friday evening.  The cost is $20/person for a barbeque dinner and a bluegrass concert by The String Mountain Band.  All the proceeds will benefit the restoration of the Museum’s 1924 American LaFrance Fire Truck.  The fire truck will also be on display.

 

The antique automobile competition will be held on Saturday at Westwood Baptist Church. There will be an opportunity to view the competing cars from 11am-3pm.  Visitor parking will be available at the corner of Georgetown and Villa Drive or at Cleveland Middle School with shuttles to and from Westwood Baptist Church.

 

The weekend will wrap up with a banquet and Awards Ceremony Saturday night at Cleveland High School. 

 

The Antique Automobile Club of America is an international organization with members in all 50 states and in more than 50 countries of the world.  The mission of the AACA is the “perpetuation of the pioneer days of automobiling by furthering the interest in and preserving of antique automobiles, and the promotion of sportsmanship and of good fellowship among all AACA members”.

 

Jones Management, Century 21, Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce and MainStreet Cleveland are sponsors of this Southeastern Fall Meet. 

 

I want to thank Chairperson Connie Wright and all the members of the Cherokee Valley Region AACA for all the hard work in bringing and organizing this event in Bradley County.  I enjoy the opportunity to host people from out of town and to show off our wonderful community. 

 

I encourage you to get out this weekend and welcome the AACA visitors to our community. This is a wonderful opportunity to see these antique automobiles without having to travel out of our county.  I hope to see you Friday night around the Courthouse.
