DW Poppy Secondary’s annual car show and fundraiser returns on Sunday, May 1. The show will feature more than 700 collector cars on display in the school’s back field. DW Poppy is located at 23752 52 Ave.

D.W. Poppy Secondary is gearing up to host its 29th annual Car Show on Sunday, May 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The school’s tradition of putting on one of Langley’s first car shows of the season brings many benefits to both the school and to community members, who get to check out more than 700 collector cars on display in the school’s back field.

The show will also have vendors, concession, 50/50 draws, car show T-shirt sales and more.

This is the school’s biggest fundraiser of the year and benefits the entire school, including the shop and computer education departments, athletic teams, dry grad and team travel.

The shop and tech departments are able to purchase tools and technology that are used for student projects and around the school.

This year the wish list includes a vinyl cutter, a large format printer, an auto shop oil collection system and monitors for the hallways in the school.

Volunteering to help with the show teaches students the value of contributing to, and being part of a community and the importance of giving back.

Students help out on the day of the show at the concession, the gates, on the grounds and during setup and clean up.

The Fort Langley Lions Club will be offering a pancake breakfast in the morning to  exhibitors and spectators.

Pre-registration for cars ($10) is now open and available in person at the school office from 7:45 a.m. to  3:15 p.m. Monday to  Friday or online through brownpapertickets.com/event/2503661. DW Poppy is located at 23752 52 Ave.
