July 4th Car Show

The Rushville Breakfast Optimist Club, after much deliberation, has decided to cancel the Annual July 4th Car Show. This is being done for the safety of the public and out of respect to the businesses that have supported the event for many years. The community and local small businesses have supported and provided sponsorship for the Car show for more than 30 years.

During this time of economic hardship, organizers feel that they could not, in good consciousness after weeks of being closed and out of work, ask for the donations needed for this event. Organizers ask that the community take this time and support the businesses that have helped them put this show on for the last 33 years. And as the Optimist Creed says, “Promise Yourself To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.”
