— Norm restored the “Flying Farmer” and began taking it to parades and car shows. While displaying the vehicle, the couple sold ribbons and T shirts with the proceeds going to fight breast cancer.

A year ago the Monettes decided to have a car show in Port Henry. Despite rain, it attracted 16 cars and raised $2,100 for the Fitzpatrick Cancer Center at Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh.

This year they hope to have more than 50 cars and trucks. They are also planning a 50-50 drawing, an auction and other activities to raise money for the cancer center.

The top 15 cars will receive trophies and there will be special contest — a muffler rap — to determine the loudest car at the show.

“It’s a lot of fun,” Shirley Monette said. “We really enjoy doing it. We’ll do this as long as we possibly can.”
