Car Show Community Event

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I am Nicholas McNutt. I work at The Heights in Broadview Heights, OH. I am an activity assistant working toward my AD certification currently. 

The facility I am working in has recently been bought out (since I began there in July). With the previous owners there was an annual car show community event held in the summer which community members, family members, staff, and residents all loved. After 3 years of not hosting this event we revived it in this past August! It went well as we had great hosts, plenty of classic cars, prizes galore via raffle tables, 50/50 made a killin', and we had some good food & music. To be honest I have never been a Car Show kind of guy but the residents LOVE this event and already are asking about this years for 2020. 

I was just sharing and looking for any fun or whacky suggestions from people who may have held a Car Show at their community/facility. 

SOME IDEAS I'VE PONDERED ON: Hot dog eating contest (or some other food), Whacky waving inflatables, karaoke, live music rather than DJ, model car or R/C car vendors, Race car photo op, big rigs, motorcycle show.  

Thank you to anyone for suggestions and stories, much appreciated!

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
