Over 30 collector’s cars were showcased at this year’s Kick Alzheimer’s Car Show on Sunday, June 30 at Peconic Landing. Unfortunately for the many people in attendance, the car show was interrupted by torrential downpours. This caused the entire area to clear out and forced the show to be cancelled after only a few hours. Regardless of the rain, there seemed to be an even larger turnout than last year, and the show was still considered a success.
Michael A. Barnhart, Ph.D., an expert in the history of American foreign relations and politics, will discuss how the United States and the Soviet Union stood at the brink of nuclear war during the Cold War and what can be learned from it now.
