Old Days Planning Committee 2023


We have raised close to $20,000.00 with our fundraising events. The goal was to raise at least half of the $30k it will cost to make our annual Old Days event happen. We owe a huge thank you to our community for supporting us. The next Old Days Committee Meeting is Monday, July 17 at 6:30 pm. Car show applications, parade applications, vendor applications, and ad applications for the Old Days Book can be found here: Applications



Old Days Planning Committee 2023


We have raised just over 15,000.00 to date with one more bingo fundraiser scheduled for June 23, 2023. We are in need of auction items, volunteers, and game sponsors. If you can help, please contact Kristy, Shirley, or Ray.

Old Days 2023 will definitely look different than the last three years. In 2020 there was no Old Days Event. 2021 and 2022 were smaller than usual for many reasons. We have been working extra hard to make 2023 as fantastic as it can possibly be. We are definitely back on Bell (if CalTrans approves our permit). The parade is back on Bell (if CalTrans approves our permit). There will be camels! There will be many new vendors (if CalTrans approves our permit). We have big plans for the 77th annual Old Days but there is still a bunch of work to do. Car show, Parade, and vendor applications are on the website. - check it out! The Old Days Planning Committee meets on the third Monday at 6:30 at the club.

Join us and help us make 2023 a spectacular year.

We have raised a little over $6,000.00 so far. The goal is to reach at least $15,000.00. Our projected cost, based on 2022, will be approximately $20,000.00. Once our fundraising is over, a budget will be determined for each committee. Until then, there are expenditures that still need to be made and they will be met. Anything extra will be divided between each committee, based on need.
