The Cushman Club of America is set to scoot into Paris for its five-day, 37th annual National Meet starting Sunday.
The Cushman scooters and members will converge at the civic center, 2025 S. Collegiate Drive, in Paris starting Sunday when the meet opens at noon.
The public is invited to attend starting Monday morning at 9 a.m. when the group holds a parade.
“The parade will start at the civic center and end downtown at the square,” said Don Henry of the club. “Once we’re at the square, we’ll take pictures and the chamber president will give a welcome speech.”
On Tuesday, from 5 – 8 p.m., the exhibit hall will be open for the public to view the scooters. The meet will conclude Thursday with a banquet inside the civic center at 6 p.m.
“A lot of us used these scooters back in the 60s for things like paper routes,” Henry said. “It was a good, cheap mode of transportation for a lot of us.”
During their stay in Paris, the Cushman Club will venture into the community on their scooters and will also take day trips to the surrounding communities.
The Cushman Club Of America is a national club with an active membership of over 3,000 Cushman enthusiasts dedicated to the restoration and preservation of Cushman Motor Scooters. Each year the CCOA also hosts a national meet that includes scooter shows, rides, contests, banquets, and much more.
