In 2006 a group of car enthusiasts decided to start a classic car club, Union County Timber Cruisers Car Club. In 2018 we decided to revise our club logo and club name to “Timber Cruisers Car Club”. Our members enjoy driving their unique vehicles and going on special trips to car museums, car related displays, or even just for breakfast, lunch or dinner. During the summer months you will find us on Friday nights at either Pioneer Park or other gathering places where we enjoy an evening of food, camaraderie, and solving world problems plus unraveling the mysteries of car troubles.
On Saturday, June 19, ten of our club member attended the Riverfest Car Show in Elgin, OR. Congratulations to six of our members who received awards. Even though some of us never received an awards or a raffle item, we all had a great time.
On Saturday, December 19, several members of our car club decided to take part in the Holiday Decoration/Lighting Guided Caravan event sponsored by La Grande Main Street Downtown and Union County Chamber of Commerce.
