Car show revs up at Valley State Prison

Current and retired employees turned out to enjoy classic cars, food and camaraderie at the Valley State Prison car show. At the same time, they supported the institution’s efforts to honor employees who have passed away.

The prison recently hosted its third annual car show event. The primary goal of the event was to raise funds for engraving the memorial wall dedicated to staff members who have passed away, creating a lasting tribute to their contributions.

Local food vendors were invited onto institutional grounds, and a silent auction provided an opportunity for participants to contribute to the fundraising efforts. Employees actively engaged by voting for their favorite vehicles, which created a friendly competition among the participants.

The collaborative efforts of the prison’s Community Resource staff and Employee Relations office played a pivotal role in ensuring the event’s success. Notably, the occasion was open to everyone, emphasizing inclusivity and community spirit. Retired employees joined in the festivities, further reinforcing the event’s significance in honoring the institution’s collective history.

Associate Warden Christine Huckabay highlighted the importance of coming together to honor employees.

“This event is a testament to our unity and shared commitment to remembering and celebrating the lives of our colleagues,” Huckabay said. “It goes beyond the cars. It’s about preserving our legacy and supporting one another.”
