Your family can help a family with a disabled child have a merrier Christmas by bringing a toy donation to the second Fall Family Cruise-In.

For the past four years, the church has sponsored a project that gives holiday gifts to disabled children and families in need. Each year the amount of families applying for help grows larger. Proceeds and toy donations from this event will be applied to that project.

Registration will begin at 2 p.m. with trophies presented at 6 p.m. Trophies will be presented to the Top 10 Vehicles chosen by People's Choice, Best in Show chosen by People's Choice, a Kids Choice and six individual awards.

Visitors don't even have to enter a show car to win at this cruise-in, because a trophy will be given to the person who is "Best Decorated for Fall or Halloween."
