STIRLING, Ont. — Organizers of the Stirling Truck Show have announced the show will not go on this year.
Originally scheduled for June 16-17, and held Father’s Day weekend over the past six years, the show has grown too big for volunteers to run and manage, announced Dave Potts, chair of the Stirling Truck Show Committee.
“Regretfully, the time has come to terminate the show as it has become too large of an event for volunteers to run and manage,” Potts wrote in a notice on the show’s Web site. “So, the show in its present form is over for this year Hopefully there will be a show of some proportion emerge from the ashes next year. The committee would truly like to thank all those who supported us over the years and the many who have become our friends.”
The show was organized by the Stirling & District Lions Club, with proceeds directed towards community work.
“We are extremely proud of being able to, through our Chosen Child program, to send a family to Disneyland for six days and to raise the much needed money for two other families with children needing intensive medical care,” Potts said.
He went on to thank the volunteers who donated “countless thousands” of hours to plan and host the event. “Without them, there would have not been a truck show,” he said.
