Wetzel Chronicle

Sunny, blue skies accompanied the third annual Dustin "Dusty" Wade Memorial Car Show, May 5, as the benefit yielded a successful $4,473.75. These proceeds are to go to the area's local Shriner's Club, in Tyler County. The funds will go to a transportation fund the Shriner's Club has for any local child who needs to go to a Shriner's hospital.

The car show was held in the Foundry Street area, in New Martinsville.

The car show honors the late Dustin "Dusty" Wade, who died in September 2013 at the age of 18. Wade was a laborer for J&T Paving and loved cars.
