July Declared Automotive Heritage Month
The Honourable Sherry Gambin-Walsh, Minister of Service NL, was joined by provincial members of the National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada (NAACC) to proclaim July as Automotive Heritage Month in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Thousands of enthusiasts throughout Canada and the United States gather each year for car cruises, parades and other events to celebrate automotive heritage. By taking part in these events, automotive enthusiasts and related businesses share their passion and enthusiasm for classic cars, while promoting the preservation of the automobile.
The NAACC also uses its vehicles to give back to communities and charities throughout the country. Over the course of its history in the province, members have raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for charities in Newfoundland and Labrador, including Easter Seals, Shriners, the Children’s Rehabilitation Centre, the Janeway Children’s Hospital and the VOCM Cares Foundation.
The NAACC is a federally incorporated, non-profit organization of Canadian automobile clubs.
