End of Summer Cruise-In at Paddock Mall
Despite the fact that I used to wish that it was Christmas every day when I was a kid, I know now that part of what makes the holidays so special is the fact that they are just that – special. In retrospect, looking forward to winter’s boon of family time, reindeer cookies and presents under a sparkly tree has been as much a part of my holiday enjoyment as the big day itself.
That being said, the First Annual End of Summer Cruise-In is coming up on Saturday, September 24, giving Ocala residents a great way to get into the giving spirit a bit early this year. The Cruise-In is a day of family fun at Paddock Mall, where attendees can donate a box full of goodies to Operation Christmas Child and enjoy an afternoon of good food, classic cars, a silent auction and some excellent prizes.
