Troup Sheriff's charity car show rescheduled

by Staff Reports

A charity car show planned today by the Troup County Sheriff’s Office has been rescheduled to June 8 due to the declining weather forecast for this weekend.

The event benefits the Georgia Sheriff’s Association Camp Pineland, which helps support dozens of young men who reside there. 

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pyne Road Park, located at 4481 Roanoke Road in LaGrange.

This marks the fourth year the sheriff’s office has held the benefit.

Along with the opportunity to see many antique cars and trucks, there will be great food, prizes, a 50/50 raffle and an auction. Trophies will be awarded to Best Car, Best Truck, Best Motorcycle and Sheriff’s Choice.

For more information on the car show contact Major Charles Nixon at 706-883-1616. You may also go to www.troupcountysheriff.org or visit the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
