Southfield plans car, tractor event

WEBSTER CITY – Southfield Wellness Community will hold its 12th annual Cruisin’ South Car and Tractor Show on from 1 to 3 p.m. Sept. 8 in the Southfield parking lot, 2414 Des Moines St., Webster City. The show will honor National Assisted Living Week, Sept. 8-14.

Visitors will vote for their favorite vintage and late model cars and tractors with awards being given for People’s Choice and Driver’s Choice. Music of the 1950s and 1960s will be featured. Anyone interested in displaying a car or tractor should contact Southfield Marketing Coordinator Marilyn Middleton at 832-3881 or Dash plates will be given to the first 80 drivers. There is no registration fee.

Last year, 75 vehicles and more than 300 people attended the free event.

Bars, cotton candy, popcorn, and lemonade will be served, with tours available at Southfield’s Independent and Assisted Living Apartments.

Tenants will celebrate Assisted Living Week by participating in a variety of activities including special menus, entertainment and out-of-town trips.

Assisted Living is different from a care center or independent apartments because it provides “a special combination of housing and supportive services,” said Lori Gordon, Southfield Independent and Assisted Living manager. “Our community provides the ideal solution for seniors who require some help with daily activities, but still wish to remain active, vibrant individuals in their preferred routines and local community.”

Southfield Wellness Community is owned and operated by ABCM Corp.
