                              Vollis Simpson's Whirligig - Note the wind cups are old car mirrors

The third Annual NC Region Spring Cruise was planned by John Allred on April 22, 2017. There were 29 Antique  cars and about 40 NC Region members that came from across from the various Chapters in NC to meet at the in Historic Downtown Wilson, NC Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park & Museum (VSWP&M)..  It was a nice day and good wind to make the 22 whirligigs 
operate for our enjoyment.

Susan Kellum, Wilson's 
Downtown Marketing & Communications Coordinator, meet us and present each NC Region members with a goody bag with information about Wilson and the new Park.  The City of Wilson had blocked off the streets for our parking. 

There are 30 Whirligigs are planned for the park. Twenty two are in place and 6 are down the street at the restoration center.  Two other whirligigs are on loan to the state of North Carolina and are located on Hwy 95 at the Virginia and South Carolina borders.

The park is being configured with a shelter for a farmers market and a stage fro summer concerts. They expect tbe park to be completed by November 2017 in time for a city celebration.
