When the Windsor High School (WHS) administration decided that holding the annual Alumni car show during school hours wasn’t a good idea, it was only natural that WHS Auto Club president Marissa Dembkoski turned to her father, Thom, for ideas.
Thom, and Marissa’s brother, Mike, are active members of Dreamz II Reality Motorsports (DIIR), one of the leading car clubs in Connecticut. DIIR’s Summer Dreamz cruise nights are a regular event at Bart’s Drive-In on Palisado Avenue, so merging the Alumni show with a DIIR cruise night was the perfect solution to the problem. After days of rain, the sun finally appeared, giving DIIR and the WHS Auto Club the green light to hold the show on Wednesday, May 25th.
“Joining forces with DIIR is great and we can’t thank them enough. This is the second time we’ve staged the show with them here at Bart’s. We want to show off our cars and have fun, and this is the ideal place to do it. The donations we receive go back to the auto club to help stage next year’s show. We also put funds toward repainting the fish in the Shad Derby floats,” said Marissa Dembkoski.
