Classic car show brings Birches residents back in time
Jul 1, 2015 4:46 PM - If you ask Birches Assisted Living residents what the cars of today are missing, you'll likely get one resounding answer: chrome. Cars of the 1950s and 60s were covered with this shiny, mirror-like material that gave them their characteristic two-tone charm. On June 24, Birches residents had the opportunity to reminisce about the chrome-covered cars of their youth during The Birches' annual summer car show. Every June, The Birches hosts a car show in partnership with Adventist St. Thomas Hospice Chaplain Ed Partyka. A classic car enthusiast, Partyka is a member of several classic car clubs and invites his fellow club members to park their retro automobiles in The Birches' parking lot for an afternoon of classic car admiration and reminiscence.
