Center Avenue School Show Thursday May 23rd was a beautiful day for a car show. We had a nice turnout of club members along with the Butler City Fire Department, Butler Ambulance Service, Pennsylvania State Police and a few other vehicles. The school brought over three groups of students to enjoy the show, Donna Errera passed out matchbox cars and Linda Stock handed out candy. Linda also made sure all the participants got some left over candy also!
The school thanks all who participated.
