Karin Robinson: It took a village to bring Rossi here

On behalf of the Roamin’ Angel’s Car Club, we would like to thank a few people who were instrumental in getting Alexander Rossi to our Cruisin’ the Pines Car Show.

First of all, the second vice district governor of the Nevada City Lions Club, Doug Wight, coordinated with Jason Fouyer, mayor of Grass Valley. The Andretti Autosport group was then contacted and it blossomed from there. Having a hometown celebrity at our car show was an added attraction and well attended.

Another thanks goes to all of the personnel from our local law enforcement: Grass Valley Police Department, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, Nevada City Police Department and the California Highway Patrol for all of their assistance. Another “thank you list” is in the works to everyone who helped make our car show a success, but these people deserve individual recognition.

Again, thanks for your part in making this possible.

Karin Robinson, secretary
