ABOUT THE EVENT
“Remember those officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and those officers that continue to protect our communities every day.”
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God (Matthew 5:9)”
"Its not how these officers died that made them heroes, its how they lived"
Mid Valley Stangs (MVS) Car Club is very proud to announce that they will be hosting an all makes/all years car show honoring the Stanislaus County law enforcement officers and first responders who have been lost in the line of duty. This car show will be the 5th Annual Fallen Heroes Car Show and all proceeds will go to the Peace Officers Memorial Group of Stanislaus County, Modesto Fire Orphan and Widows Fund and a local veterans group. These groups assist the families of those officers and firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This event will be on Saturday August 19th, 2017 at the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Regional Training Center located at 3805 Cornucopia Way in Modesto.
This will be a great event and many exciting things are planned. The opening ceremonies will include the posting of colors (national flags) by law enforcement Honor Guard, guest speakers, the reading of the bios on the officers lost and the playing of the Taps and Amazing Grace on the bagpipes. It’s a tribute you don’t want to miss. There will be a display of specialized law enforcement vehicles including SWAT armored vehicles and memorial/historical police cars that the public can view. There will also be a police K9 demonstration which is always very exciting.
There will be plenty of great cars, great people, food, music, vendors and raffle prizes at the show.
The Stanislaus County Sheriff, Adam Christianson has been a huge supporter of the event and we are very thankful to the Sheriff. The Modesto Police Officers Association (MPOA) has also been very supportive of the event. We are very appreciative of MPOA for their support as well as the support from the Stanislaus Sworn Deputies Association (SSDA). There are many sponsors of this show who are making this event possible and it’s hard to name everyone. We hope to see all of you car enthusiasts there at the show.
The show will start with opening ceremonies at 10am. Staging of the cars will start at 7am and all vehicles must be staged by 9:30am. Awards presentation will start at 2pm.
