SHAWVILLE Feb. 7, 2018
On Wednesday, dozens of schoolchildren gathered at Grace Community Bible Church in Shawville to compete in a long-standing community event as the Cornerstone Club held its annual Grand Prix.
The 40 or so youngsters that attended encircled the 35-foot track where model cars were competing in four-man heats and were quite vocal in supporting their chosen vehicle.
Organizer Joy Moquin explained that the event has been going on for years and is a highlight for the group, which is for children aged seven to 11 and meets after school every Wednesday from September to March.
