100-year-old car hits the road for Wisconsin Lions Camp

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An international foundation is "rolling" through a milestone by driving a 100-year-old car through parts of Wisconsin.

Monday, members of the Wisconsin Lions Club hopped in a 1917 Oakland car and drove part of the Yellowstone Trail, which is the first transcontinental automobile highway in the U.S.

The trail includes 406 miles of road from Hudson to Kenosha.

Monday, members started in Hudson and stopped in Menomonie and Eau Claire.

Members said they're celebrating the 100th year of Lions International, but are also using their journey as a way to raise funds for the Wisconsin Lions Camp.

"This camp was established in 1957 and it's a place for children with disabilities, children have visual, handicaps, they can go there and go to camp just like any other kids would for a week to 10 days," said Lions member Dave Sarna.

Tuesday, the Lions Club said the car will be at the Riverview Park in Cadott at Noon at the Yellowstone Trail Marker and Lions Pavilion.

The club expects to arrive in Kenosha on Saturday night.
