Once again, we are going to take our fall drive to Winnsboro, TX and it will be for the 56th Annual Autumn Trails Event which is an annual month-long event for the town of Winnsboro.   Saturday the 24nd is for Antique Cars and car clubs that features a parade into downtown.  It will be a fun day with our club participating in the parade and for those who have attended in the past, seeing the kids and throwing candy is worth the trip.  The events began 56 years ago with the Model A Club of Dallas, seeing the cars is also amazing with some great restorations of these historic cars.  With the coronavirus guidelines regarding groups and social distancing this year we will not be scheduling a lunch afterward.  There are several fast food restaurants at the highway 30 and highway 11 exit and into Sulphur Springs there are also restaurants. 

We will be forming up for the parade on Highway 11 in the same place as last year.   Just remember to bring candy, lots of candy to throw out to the kids on the parade route.  This has been a lot of fun for our club in the past; you won’t believe all of the cars and the kids on the parade route are the most fun of all.

Ron and Carolee Seifert will be hosting the event and the schedule follows.

Meet for check-in at 8:00 AM at the QuickTrip gas station at 1400 E. Joe Ramsey Blvd, Greenville, TX. (It is at the southeast corner of HYW 69 and I-30 East in Greenville).  If anyone is lost call Ron’s cell phone at 972-824-0464.

We will leave at 8:15 AM for Winnsboro. It is a 55-mile drive from Greenville and we form up for the parade in Winnsboro at 10 AM. It is important if we want to stay together to be there on time.  We must leave at 8:15 AM!

The cost for the event/drive will be $10 per car, payable at check-in or PayPal..

Don’t worry about not having an antique or classic car or convertibles just come; they welcome the MB Club participation.  For those with convertibles or antique restorations it will be a fun place to show your car and you can practice your special hand wave for the crowd.  Put your section magnetic sign on your cars for the event if you have them.  I will have them for sale at check-in if you would like to purchase a set. The cost for the set is $14.00.

Call Ron Seifert at 972-824-0464 or email at [email protected] by October 20th if you are attending or sign up on PayPal.  We are looking for a great turnout and this time of year should give us great driving weather and a nice day for a fall drive.
