GRANVILLE — Granville Cruise Night on Friday featured approximately 100 cars, a good crowd of spectators and fun activities for children. During the event, funds were raised for several causes, including the Putnam County Music Boosters.
Some of the highlights of the cruise night included a petting zoo, pony rides, a balloon man, music, a street dance, a 50/50 drawing and a performance by the Putnam County Panteras dance team.
Putnam County High School teacher Natalie Hulstrom said band and chorus students are raising funds for a trip they plan to take in May 2013 to Cleveland.
“We’re looking at about 40 kids,” she said. “The community has done an amazing job of supporting us.”
The trip will cost approximately $500 per student, Hulstrom said.
One of the students planning to make the trip is Taylor Blaylock of Hennepin, who will be finishing her senior year when the group heads to Cleveland.
Blaylock said she is looking forward to seeing and learning new things on the trip. She’s also looking forward to the chance to spend more time with Hulstrom.
“I look up to her,” she said.
Peg Gonet of the cruise committee said she was pleased with the turnout at the car show. She said people seemed to be enjoying the fact that there were more vendors this year.
“We’re just growing,” she said.
