Last summer, the weather held off on June 23, 2013 and we had an excellent car show!  175+ vehicles showed up and the Association of Car Enthusiasts in Stratford & Area, along with their generous sponsors, raised over $2,000 for the Stratford General Hospital Foundation.  THANK YOU!

For the second year, the Association of Car Enthusiasts in Stratford & Area will donate all net proceeds to the MRI Fund at the Stratford General Hospital.  We are an entirely volunteer run club, after expenses are covered every dollar will be given to this great cause!  Want to help out?  Attend our events and give generously.  Want to make a real impact?  Make a donation directly at

Thank you for your support!  When you support the hospital, you support our whole community and all the communities our hospital serves.




As you may know, the Association of Car Enthusiasts in Stratford & Area believes in giving back to our community.  Last year we collected donations for worthy local charities.  Although it was only our first year as a club, we managed to raise and donate $244 for the Stratford Humane Society (formerly the OSPCA Perth County) and $91.64 for the Alzheimer Society of Perth County.  Thank you for helping us to support two great causes in 2012!

In our January, 2013 meeting, the club membership voted unanimously to designate the Stratford General Hospital as our charity of choice.  Please give generously!

First ever ACES cruise-in was last night at Stratford Boston Pizza Perfect weather, 27 cars, and lots of nice folks! Special thanks to Dan Smith for hosting and Brian Pugh for the brilliant DJ service. Can’t wait for next week. If you didn’t attend here’s what you missed:
