El Capitan Stadium Association Supports Local Youth

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

For the past 60 years, the El Capitan Stadium Association has hosted the Lakeside Rodeo.

The dedicated volunteers behind the scenes know they’re doing more than organizing bull riding and barrel racing, and wrangling the huge crowds—

they’re raising money to support local youth, paving the way for brighter futures.

Take Ava Raugust, a senior at El Capitan High School. She’s one of the many students whose future is brighter because of the Stadium Association.

The Stadium Association, with the help of the Lakeside Community, is supporting our future leaders, innovators, and creators.

It’s about community, opportunity, and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.

Congratulations Ava, and all of the El Capitan Stadium Association scholarship recipients.

Thank you El Capitan Stadium Association for 60 years of supporting the youth of Lakeside.
