JOPLIN, Mon. – Oldtimers and oldtimers were exhibited in Joplin to raise money for a local VFW post office.
The Blood and Steel on Route 66 Car Show was held at the Joplin Athletic Complex to raise funds for VFW Post 5293.
There was food, music, vendors, a silent auction, and a blood drive was held at the Blood Center of the Ozarks on Northpark Mall.
Fred Pugh, Commander of Joplin VFW Post 5293, says, “Without the VFW there would be many veterans who would forego it. No one helps veterans more than the VFW. And we’re trying to make our little part of Missouri as responsible as possible for veterans. “
Randy Stice, Junior Vice at VFW 5293, says, “We’ll help them with whatever we can. We even do special things for them, like ramps for their wheelchairs and the like. “
They hope to make the auto show an annual event that will benefit local veterans.
