Brockway show canceled again

The Brockway Truck Preservation Association has canceled the 2020 Brockway Truck Show previously scheduled for Aug. 6 to 9, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This annual event scheduled for the second weekend in August had originally been canceled in mid-June, but after an outpouring of support from both the Brockway members and the community, the association looked to have one-day event that would have been a private party and would have met local state and federal guidelines for masks and social distancing, the museum said in a news release.

However, after monitoring the current numbers, rate of spread and quarantined states around New York, organizers — including the executive boards of the Brockway Truck Preservation Association and CNY Living History Center — decided to cancel even that event to keep members, volunteers and the community healthy.

The truck show committee is already planning for the 21st Annual Brockway Truck Show from Aug. 12 to 15, 2021.

If you are missing the Brockways rolling through town, some of those trucks and their history are on display in The Brockway Truck Museum, at 4386 Route 11, Cortlandville.

The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The last admission of the day is 4 p.m. Small groups are welcome by appointment. Temperature checks, masks and social distancing is required. For details, visit www.cnylivinhistory.org or call 607-299-4185.
