Cadets earn Kub Car Race title

submitted to EFP

Essex Christian Reformed Church held its annual Kub Car Race on Monday, May 7, to the joy of all children and adults attending.

  In a classic boys-against-girls challenge, the Calvinist Cadet Corps took on the GEMS Girls’ Club, for the ninth year in a row, to see who would win the coveted Kub Car Trophy.

  The children all make their own cars and are always excited to see them race down the track.

The GEMS won last year, so the Cadets were anxious to regain the trophy.

  After the snacks were all gone and the last car had raced down the track, it was time to figure out which group won. By fractions of a second, the Cadets reclaimed their title as the champions and celebrated together.

  After Pete Kuipers, the Cadets’ head counselor, had said a few parting words, everyone said goodbye to each other until the start-up of GEMS and Cadets in the fall.

  Each group runs every Monday at the church during the school year and is made up of elementary school-aged children from within the community. When the children reach high school, they’re encouraged to take leadership roles.

  These groups are always looking for new members. Interested parents can contact the Essex Christian Reformed Church at (519) 776-5071 for more information.
