Story by Dianne

For many years my son participated in the Big Brothers Soap Box Derby. The event was traditionally held every September on Centre Road. He attended his first derby at the age of 7 years. After that first year he gained the nick-name of “Crash” and you can imagine why. There were many news/TV articles written about him and his big brother, including from the Villager. Even during his teen years he volunteered for the organizing committee and at the event until it was cancelled. With his love of ‘things that go’, he is now a working automotive engineer and can truly say he loves his job!
