The 2017 Hope Civitan Car Show on August 12th was entered by seventy-two vehicles from Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas.

The 2017 Hope Civitan Car Show on August 12th was entered by seventy-two vehicles from Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas.  The vehicles were judged with a 100 point scoring system by two judges.  Various Hope businesses sponsored the 1st and 2nd Place trophies for the car and truck classes. The trophies were made by Mr. Foster of Hope Engraving who also donated trophies for Best Paint, Best Engine, Best of Show Car, and Best of Show Truck.
The local car club, The Plow Boys, entered their vehicles in support of the Hope Civitan Club. The first 50 entrants receive dash plaques and "goody bags" filled with items donated by Hope businesses. The proceeds from this event are used by the Hope Civitan Club to promote citizenship, fund events for the local mentally and physically challenged, the homeless, and the senior citizens.
