Lyndon Methodist Church celebrates 150th anniversary by getting all ‘Rev’d Up’

Lyndon United Methodist Church’s ninth annual Get Rev’d Up All Motor Show, held June 19, 2021, also served as a celebration for the church’s 150th anniversary, which was observed a year late due to the pandemic.

This year’s event, Lyndon resident Gene Hirt handed out 172 American Flags as the cars, trucks and motorcycles entered the city park in Lyndon, which was filled to the brim with cars as the show got underway.

The church served homemade biscuits and gravy, breakfast burritos and cinnamon rolls inside the shelter house, and later homemade ice cream and lunch. The American Legion came around 9:30 a.m. and Michael Kaufman, Lyndon High School band teacher, played the Star Spangled Banner solo on the saxophone. Music played throughout the morning with DJ Pat Reyle, Rock Star Entertainment, and Mike Cline and the Constant Praise Band, from Atchison, and who have performed at the car show since its beginning.

At the awards ceremony in the afternoon, 32 prizes were awarded, with a special guest, David Wolfe from the Street Rodding American Style PBS program, who presented a “PIZZAZZ” award to Bruce Mishler,of Lyndon. Show participants also were presented door prizes and monetary awards, which were made possible with donations from local businesses and organizations.
