The Joys of Chatham Chatlist

I found out about this event from Chatham Chatlist, a daily email bulletin of events and opinion in Chatham County, NC.

Chatham Chatlist is a usually civilized bulletin board – occasionally, someone gets all worked up and types in ALL CAPITALS. But it’s always informative and sometimes even touching.

I can’t say I contribute. But I enjoy seeing it in my inbox every day, finding out the buzz in the neighborhood before I even leave home.

This week featured posts about a lost peacock, a chess club, stuff about home repairs and today’s item about the Motors for Music Car Show to benefit the jazz program at Northwood H.S. in Pittsboro.

Motors for Music Car Show

This is the 3rd year the Motors for Music Car Show has taken place. In each of the past two years, there’s been nearly to 100 cars participating. The Northwood Jazz Band will be playing, along with many other musical acts.

Food and concessions will be available, along with a 50/50 raffle.

Live music by Northwood Jazz, El Mirage, Ira Planer, Circle City, Uniontown and by Andy Coates and the Bankwalkers.


The top 50 cars and trucks will all receive trophies. There will also be a top motorcycle trophy. Entrants will be able to vote toward the top prize — the Best of Show Award.

The Club Award will go to the club with the highest participation. The Young Gun Awards will go to high school students.

The first 100 participants to register will receive a special Motors for Music dash plaque.
