ANNA — There will be two opportunities for car enthusiasts this weekend in Anna.

The Anna Historical Society will host a Classic Cruise-in and Pork Roast, Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Heiland Legion Post on County Road 25A.

The event is a fundraiser for the historical society to raise money to purchase a home for the society.

Car owners can register their cars from 3 to 3 p.m. for a $10 per car fee. The first 50 entrants will receive dash plaques. The car show will be open to the public from 3 to 6 p.m.

The pork roast dinner will run from 4 to 6 p.m. Tickets cost $8 and are available in advance at the Anna Town Hall.

Scarecrows in the Park and a craft/vendor and car show will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Anna Park on Sunday, Oct. 11.

It’s $5 to enter a car into the car show, and all proceeds will go to the local food bank. Attendees will also get to vote on their favorite scarecrow by donating canned food items.

Through Aug. 31, the food bank in Anna has served 907 people throughout the county. Organizers are encouraging anyone who wants to come bring as much non-perishable food as they want and can.

It is $10 to set up a booth at the event. Interested parties can find a vendor form on the Village of Anna website. Questions may be directed to the village offices at 937-394-3751.

A special ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony will also be held for the new extension to the walking path at 3 p.m.
