The CFSRA was formed by some local car nuts in 1989. Several of those charter members are still active participants in the club today.
Some members are also members of NSRA and the club provides support of NSRA by running games at some of the NSRA events.
In addition to helping club members and other street rodders, we have also chosen to give back to the community through proceeds from our annual Fathers Day Rod Run car show.
2023 Fathers Day Rod Run
Our Fathers Day Rod Run was held on Saturday, June 17. Inspite of some on again/off again showers, everyone had a great time. We had hoped attendance would be up, but it looks like the weather held it to about the same as last year. Food sales, shirt sales, bake good sales and vendor sales were all livlely. We had lots of return participants and many new comers. Because of many generous donors, we had lots of door prizes. The participants bought lots of tickets which led to a sizeable 50/50 pot. On their way out, a lot of participants said they had a great time and would be back next year (6/15/24).
