GREENVILLE – The Legendary Rolling 50’s Classics, Inc. now in its 41st year held its annual Rolling 50’s Classics Father’s Day Spectacular at the Darke County Fair Grounds with more than 200 entries.

The organization that began forming in 1982 and started in 1983 at the old Dog N Suds on Wagner in Greenville and continues to give to charities including The Shriner’s Children’s Hospital and the Cancer Association of Darke County.

“There are a lot of kids out here with their dads and grandfathers out here today,” said Rolling 50’2 Ken Erwin. “This has been a real good turnout. I believe it’s bigger than what we’ve had in the past. This is more like when we first started it – the place is packed full of cars.”
