Rose City Classics is a 1955-1956-1957 Chevrolet Club established
in 1981 for the purpose of encouraging restoration and/or preservation of the '55-'57 Chevrolet automobile, truck
and Corvette. RCC welcomes all make/model of classic vehicles. The club meets on the third Thursday of the month except in
the months of January, September and December. Meeting location is in process of changing.
two major open-event cruise-ins each year.
Our primary event is designated as our “Charity Cruise.”
Each year members pick a different charity to benefit from this event. The Charity Cruise is held in Woodland WA in June.
Our club has a rich history of community activism and since 1999 we have donated more than $200,000 to local
charitable organizations. These include the St. Mary's Home for Boys, Susan G. Komen Portland Race for the Cure, Washington
County Families for Independent Living, Oregon Diabetes Association, Oregon Burn Center at Legacy Emanuel Hospital and Neighbors
Helping Neighbors. In addition to helping these organizations we have also donated more than $6,000 to assist club members
and other organizations in our community.
Our second event is a cruise-in at The Wooden Chicken in Portland OR
and is held in July.
Other activities include a yearly banquet, a Fun Run to kick off the cruising season, a
club picnic and a Christmas party. We recently started, and we hope to continue, an informal monthly cruise to a local eatery.
This gives us a chance to get the cars out and just drive!
Yearly membership is $45 which includes The News,
a monthly newsletter, to keep you up-to-date on current club and local events.
