Brown and Douglas Active Adult Center celebrated autumn with their annual Fall Festival on Friday, Oct. 14, with a variety of activities for attendees to enjoy. The display of classic cars by the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Old Salem chapter brought a lot of lookers to view cars from an antique 1928 Ford Model A to the classic Camaro. Leigh Bodenheimer, a member of AACA along with her husband, said they had a couple cars on display. She said they enjoy going to various cruise-ins and meeting other car enthusiasts. “Every car has a story,” remarked Leigh. Watching visitors stop by the cars, peer into engines and chat with the owners, I’m sure there were a lot of stories being shared.

Leigh invited anyone interested in old or classic cars to come to the monthly cruise-in in Kernersville the third Saturday of the month from 3 – 8 p.m. at Main and Mountain Streets. Anyone can bring a car to display.

Other activities at the Fall Festival included pumpkin painting, bingo, and various vendors. Larry Pope and Big Ron Hunter provided the musical entertainment.

Serena Mumford, Brown and Douglas rec center supervisor, said she was very pleased with the turnout. The beautiful weather was a plus and the volunteers from Atkins Class of 1969 and Atrium Wake Forest psych class helped tremendously to greet visitors and direct them to activities.
