2019 Laingsburg Working Together Event

We want to alert everyone that this annual event will have a new look in 2019. At our final wrap-up meeting last fall the organizers of the Chad Hill Memorial Cruise-In and Burn Out announced that they will be going in a new direction, scheduling their own event(s) at other times during the year. This means that Laingsburg Working Together will now consist of the Pancake Breakfast and the Classic Car Show and will continue to be held on the last weekend of July. These two events take place simultaneously on Main Street in Downtown Laingsburg. The Pancake Breakfast is served from 8:00 until 11:00 am. The Classic Car Show is open from 8:00 until 1:00 pm. We are anticipating another great turnout at this year’s event, which will be held on
July 27, 2019. (Always the last Saturday of July)

Organizers:

a) For over 50 years the Laingsburg Business & Community Association (LBCA) has promoted commerce and community vitality in the Laingsburg area through annually sponsored events. This Annual Pancake Breakfast held on main street has been a way for the LBCA to give back to the community. It is provided on a free will donation basis.
b) The Classic Car Show has been an annual fundraiser for Looking Glass Community Outreach (LGCO), formerly Looking Glass Community Services. The LGCO share of the proceeds from this event go to support emergency relief efforts in the Laingsburg/Perry/Shaftsburg/Morrice communities.

Classic Car Show - July 29, 2017

Classic Car Show - July 30, 2016

The Classic Car Show is the main fund raising event each year for LGCO.
It always takes place on the last Saturday of July, and is held on Main Street
in downtown Laingsburg. It is part of a half-day event which starts with a
Pancake Breakfast from 8:00 – 11:00 and is held in the street in the center
of the downtown business district.

The Classic Car Show also starts at 8:00 am and runs till about 1:00 pm in the afternoon. It is also held on the street, next to the Pancake Breakfast. In the past there has also been a cruise-in and burn out event in the afternoon and early evening. However, in the fall of 2018, the organizers of this event decided to go in a new direction and will hold impromptu events as they feel appropriate.

There have also been other activities like clowns, face painting, tractor
pull, business expo, and bouncy house attractions
. It is helpful to contact the City of Laingsburg in July to get a schedule of this year’s activities.

The proceeds from this event, locally known as Laingsburg Working Together, are divided equally between the sponsoring groups:

1.The Laingsburg Business and Community Association
2.Looking Glass Community Outreach

The portion of the proceeds that comes to Looking Glass Community Outreach is deposited in our Emergency Relief Fund which is used to help families in our
service area (Laingsburg, Shaftsburg, Perry, Morrice and Bancroft).

Pancake Breakfast: 8:00am to 11:00am
