Cruising for those who immobilized

Spectators, including hospital patients, watch a cruise participant in a distinctive looking street rod driving past the Cypress Regional Hospital.

There was a good turnout of special interest and vintage vehicles for Cruisin' the Care Homes, the Eliminators Car Club's final social distance cruise of the year in Swift Current, Sept. 16.

Cruise participants gathered at the Innovation Credit Union iPlex north parking lot, where the Swift Current Salvation Army accepted donations for the local food bank. From there the convoy of vehicles followed a route around the city that took them past care and retirement homes, as well as the Cypress Regional Hospital, Swift Current EMS, and the Swift Current Fire Hall.

This was the fourth time that Eliminators Car Club hosted such an event in 2020. The inaugural cruise was held in late April as a way to give participants something to do during the COVID-19 pandemic and to show support to the Salvation Army, essential workers and care home residents.
