The antique car show came to campus last week. Kinsley Rausch, FLI Coordinator, recruited Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars fame as our headliner. She mobilized colleagues and students to plan and manage the evening. We emailed car clubs across Connecticut to advertise the event. As a result of our emerging partnership with Stanley Black & Decker, this Fortune 500 American manufacturer sent employees as exhibitors. Our dining hall staff prepared a barbecue dinner. There was live music, a blacksmith demonstration, and an ice cream truck. Of course, our students joined the fun. Moreover, teachers and spouses with parents, children, and grandchildren participated along with friends from the River Road neighborhood. Even though Mother Nature did not fully cooperate, everyone had a good time. As a matter of fact, I believe we witnessed the birth of a new Franklin Academy tradition.
