CLEARWATER TRIBUNE HOME

JULY 22, 2010

Jim McCall, Spokane Valley, WA, was presented the Best in Show award at Saturday's 7th annual Orofino Show & Shine for his 1900 Steam Locomobile.

Seventh annual Show & Shine a big hit

   Orofino’s Show and Shine Committee members would like to express their appreciation to all the participants that helped make the 7th annual Orofino Show & Shine successful again this year. The Show & Shine was held last weekend at the Orofino City Park and could be seen from Highway 12 if you looked across the Clearwater River.

   While dads are having fun visiting with other car owners, moms and kids are swimming in the cool Clearwater River.  The food vendors were busy all day long as hundreds of spectators brought their families to the park to see a wide variety of vehicles.

   There was an old military truck, rat rods, hot rods, muscle cars, a steam car, motorcycles, and the usual show quality cars.  The show covered the years of 1900 to 2010.  Because of the wonderful participants a new record of attendance was set for 132 registered entrants.

   The show was started for the sole purpose of giving college bound kids a financial boost.  The committee is made up of 13 volunteer members. By making the Show & Shine successful members were able to give out $6000 in scholarships this year to high school students in Clearwater County. Because of the participants and sponsors for the last seven years members have been able to give out a total of $20,000 in scholarships.
