During the re-grand opening of Sprouse’s Garage at Sprouse’s Corner on July 9, a car show was held in memory of Wayne Rose, who died in April in a logging accident in Prince Edward County. Entrance fees for the event were donated to Mr. Rose’s family. Numerous antique vehicles were showcased at the event to both honor the memory of Mr. Rose and raise needed funds for his family. We commend the community for showing compassion to his family, Sprouse’s Garage for hosting the event and volunteers for organizing it. Pictured are two of the volunteers who helped make the event possible: Travis Toney, left, and Wayne “Papa Smurf” Bryant. (Send ‘Way to Go’ photos with names and a description to
