Shelburne's Trillium Ford Lincoln Ltd. Impacting Shelburne Community With Charitable Fundraising Initiative,
 Drive 4UR Community 

Drive 4UR Community is a charitable fundraiser making waves towards positive change for local communities. A Trillium Ford Lincoln Ltd initiative, the organization recently raised $1,780 over the Pickin In the Park Weekend Annual Event with help from volunteer Shelburne Lion Club Members. Providing a number of vehicles to test drive for free, Trillium Ford donates money according to the number of test drives. 

Pickin In The Park Organizers, Greg and Heather Holmes will receive half the amount raised and presented to the Shelburne Lions Club which will be put towards the construction of the future Pole Barn to be built at Shelburne's Fiddle Park. The remainder of the money raised will be delivered via the Shelburne Lions Club to the community of Shelburne.

The donation is greatly appreciated by Pickin In The Park Organizers, who have already raised $90,000  of the $120,000 they expect the construction to cost, the donation is a very welcome addition to a structure that will very likely attract many public venues to Fiddle Park including the ever growing and wildly popular Pickin In The Park.
