The calendar has turned to October, pumpkins and scarecrows are everywhere and the weather is starting to cool off.

Every year, it is fun to see the many familiar faces of car owners, and spectators alike, that come from all over the State of Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts and even some from points farther.
The Car Show is the 2nd largest fundraiser of the New Fairfield Lions Club and all the net proceeds are redirected back into the many programs, organizations, and charities that we sponsor in New Fairfield and the Greater Danbury area. The New Fairfield Lions Club sponsors events for the Senior Citizens, Pediatric Eye Screening, CRIS Radio for the hearing impaired, Scholarships for High School Seniors, the Boy Scouts of America, and several other youth and sports organizations. We are also the proud sponsors of our young Lions in our Middle School and High School, the New Fairfield Leos Club.
The New Fairfield Lions Club is helping to restock the Food Pantry in New Fairfield. If you would like to help us, please bring any non-perishable foods, that you would like to donate, with you to the Car Show. It would be greatly appreciated.
We hope that you will come out and support the New Fairfield Lions Club and make all the owners of these beautiful vehicles know that people enjoy seeing the fruits of their labor in maintaining or restoring these beautiful vehicles.As always, if you or someone you know enjoys helping others in need and enjoys giving back to the community, then the Lions Club is for you! Feel free to ask any of our Lions Club members to invite you to attend one of our events or dinner meetings. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm at Biscotti’s Restaurant in New Fairfield, CT. We will have a membership and information table at the Car Show for you to visit and to view “What We Do For You In New Fairfield”.
