GRANVILLE — On June 30, the Stateline Challenger’s Group arrived at the Putnam County Food Pantry located in the Granville United Church of Christ.
Along with an abundance of horsepower, they also brought a generous monetary donation of more than $300. This car club has more than 200 members and is based in the Rockford-Beloit area. Jim Turner of Granville met with the club and became a member three years ago during the “Cars Time Forgot” show in Delavan, Wis.
The club’s mission is to help provide groceries for those less fortunate. They do through spring, summer and fall cruises. This year, their summer cruise brought them to Putnam County. There are no dues or obligations, and they collect at every event throughout the year. The group also goes out during the winter, just without their cars.
Members said if people didn’t see the 21 Plymouth Challengers traveling through the area, including trips through Hennepin, Princeton and Tiskilwa, then they missed the special treat known as “the Skittles” because of all of the colorful cars.
