In 2006 a group of car enthusiasts decided to start a classic car club which was the start of the Union County Timber Cruisers Car Club.  Our members enjoy driving their unique vehicles and going on special trips for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  During the summer months you will find us on Friday nights at The Gas Station (Texaco on Adams) where we enjoy an evening of food, camaraderie, and solving world problems plus unraveling the mysteries of car troubles.

We also organize the “Grande Ronde-A-View Weekend” Car Show in La Grande, Oregon, the third weekend of July sponsored by Baxter Auto Parts, M.J. Goss Motors, La Grande Gold & Silver, The Market Place and joining as a sponsor for the 2015 car show, Laurence’s Auto Body & Paint.

St Paddy’s Day Cruise In at Heppner, OR

Three of our car club members decided to challenge the weather forecast of rain and took their classic cars to the first of many 2015 car shows:  John & Janis, Jerry & Cindy, and Arlan & Mary Ann.  Jack & Ellen and Matt, Lucy & family joined them later in the day for lunch and to check out all the cars.  Jack and Ellen even entered Ellen’s car in the parade.

Post Christmas Party

Over 40 members gathered on January 10 to share a great ham dinner and a good time. Everyone brought a while elephant gift and obviously took home a white elephant gift – some nicer than others.  A lot of stealing of these marvelous treasures happened during the course of the evening while some of the beauties (used carburetor) were hard to trade. Thanks to Paula, Debbie, and Virginia for organization this event.







Christmas Light Parades

La Grande Christmas Light Parade

There were over 25 club members who participated in the La Grande Christmas Light Parade held on December 4.
