Boppin’ Bo’s Music Fest & Cruise-In 4 Vets

by lewwaters

Doing it Again – For the Vets

Bullit 1 Peeling out, burning rubber, smokin’ the tires, all music to the ears of America’s youth years ago as we cruised the main drag, showing off our ride and just hanging out at the local burger joint with the other kids and listening to the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Ronny and the Daytona’s and more. A tradition largely lost today as raw horsepower has been replaced by computer controls.

The tradition lives again as Boppin’ Bo’s Malt Shop and Grill at Vancouver Plaza will be hosting a Music Fest & Cruise-In in support of the Clark County Veterans Court, Sept. 14, 2013.

People packed Boppin’ Bo’s last May 18 for 4 hours of entertainment, cool cars and of course, to enjoy a taste of unique American cuisine, a California Dreamin’ Burger, a Lucy Grilled Cheese or even a Graceland Special, a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich.

Kick off the Summer with a Cruise-in at Boppin’ Bo’s

by lewwaters

Route 66, once known as the Main Street of America since it was one of our early roads cutting through the heart of America. Its fame spawned songs, a hit TV show of the same name and epitomized the American love affair with our cars as many envisioned cruising down the highway, with the top down, listening to the cool songs of the era by the Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Jan & Dean and of course, Elvis Presley.

The once famous highway has been bypassed by modern Interstate Highways today and is but a historical memory, but our visions of cruising in a cool car, like a vintage Corvette remain imbedded in our souls as does the songs like ‘409,’ ‘Little Deuce Coupe,’ ‘Maybellene’ and so many more.

Concert, Classic Car Show to Benefit Veterans Court

by lewwaters

Our community remains very blessed in so many ways and one blessing we enjoy is taking care of and looking out for our Veterans, knowing the price they have paid for us. We have some of the strongest Veteran supporting communities in the United States and our citizens turn out in large numbers to support our Veterans, as seen every year on Memorial Day and the attendance at our Veterans Day Parade at Vancouver Barracks.

But Veterans are human too and occasionally, a small few may stray and run afoul of the legal system. As was outlined in a previous post, that is where our Veterans Court comes in, diverting minor infractions that might otherwise land someone in jail to Veterans support groups in an effort to help a struggling Veteran instead of just throwing them to the wolves.

The previous post announced a “Cruise-in” to raise needed funding for the Veterans Court and was not only well attended, offered everybody who could make it a great day of fun and enjoyment.

Another event is now planned to benefit our Veterans Court that promises to be even more fun and enjoyment for all ages, especially if you are a “Certified Car Nut.”
