About The Blairsville Cruisers
The Blairsville Cruisers officially became a non-profit corporation in 2007. Cruise-In on the Square was started in the same year. From there the club and its members worked constantly to make a name for themselves in the county. In no time at all the Cruise-In on the square became a Friday night block Party at O’Reilly Auto Parts with a cruise-in to the square the following day. With the huge success of the block parties the cruisers relocated to a field next to Walmart in Blairsville. This allowed them to accommodate all of the rides that participate. During the summer of 2013, the block parties were moved to the Union County Farmer’s Market in Blairsville. This venue offers over 50 paved, covered spaces and the surrounding property has parking spaces for hundreds more vehicles. The success of these events over the years is certainly credited to the many car enthusiasts that participate month after month and year after year. The Cruisers held their first annual Veteran’s Appreciation Car Show at the Union County Farmer’s Market in November 2018. Many club members donate their time and talents in many ways. Their time and efforts along with the support of many sponsors has helped in making the cruisers the club they are today.
The Blairsville Cruisers proudly support: Shop with a Cop Program in Blairsville, Shop With a Cruiser, Union County Sherriff’s Gift a Gift Program, Shop With a Hero in Hiawassee, Shop With a Hero in Hayesville, Shop With a Cop in Murphy, many local Veteran’s organizations, Union County Food Bank, along with education by way of scholarships to local graduates continuing their education. Although we work diligently throughout the year to help make the holidays brighter for children in need in our community we also provide support throughout the year by assisting families with food or even paying a fuel bill to help keep them and their children warm in the winter. We have made several donations to help assist with funeral cost for local families. We understand we can not meet the needs of everyone, everyday, but we are very grateful for all of our sponsors and you, our supporters.
Board of Directors
The Blairsville Cruisers Board of Directors was elected in October of 2018. This is just a small group of the members that put in their time, along with their heart and soul in order to make the club’s activities as successful as they have become. These members, along with many others that participate in setting up, tearing down, cooking, selling t-shirts, putting up signs, selling raffle tickets and so much more are the heart and soul of the club. We all work together for one main cause, to help children and their families when in need.
