Minister Proclaims Automotive Heritage Month in Newfoundland and Labrador

 

The Honourable Eddie Joyce, Minister of Service NL, in partnership with the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada (NAACC), has proclaimed July as Automotive Heritage Month in Newfoundland and Labrador.

 

“The NAACC and its members do great work supporting automotive hobbies, and also provide valuable fundraising assistance to several charities and community groups.  As NAACC members celebrate Automotive Heritage Month with exhibitions throughout the province this July, I want to thank them for all they do to support charitable efforts.”

Over the course of its history in the province, the NAACC has raised more than a quarter million dollars in support of charities that include the Easter Seals, Shriners, the Children's Rehabilitation Centre, the Janeway Hospital, and the VOCM Cares Foundation.

 

“We thank the Provincial Government for partnering with the NAACC to recognize Automotive Heritage Month. Our Association is proud to preserve automotive heritage for future generations, and to use our restored, unique, historic vehicles to give back to our communities through various provincial charities.”

- Bob Ford, Director and Membership Chairman of the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada in Newfoundland and Labrador
