RICHMONDVILLE — The Richmondville Volunteer Emergency Squad held their 1st Annual Wheel Chair Races on June 1st.  Several members and the public tried their hand at this event.  There was only one mishap as the wheels of one of the wheelchairs locked up and the participant toppled to the ground… fortunately, no one needed an ambulance although there were several emergency squad volunteers to the rescue.  The overall winners were Darren Sperbeck and RJ Wilsey (a member on the Richmondville Volunteer  Emergency Squad)  who took home the trophy.

They also had a cruise-in “Roaring through Richmondville” car show hosted by Savage Car Club. There were several local vehicles in it.  Two of our locals stepped out for this event, Rick Bishop displayed his rugged 1986 Dodge Ram 4x4 with a 318 engine. Wayne Warner showed off his powerful 1956 Chevy Bel Air with a 350 engine.  Many car enthusiasts were there to enjoy the magnificent vehicles. Ratrod Harry, on of the organizers of the event, gave special thanks to the dedicated volunteers, vendors , car show participants, wheelchair race participants and supporters of the Richmondville Volunteer Emergency Squad.  Their presence made this event unforgettable!
