Dunbar Village celebrates Cruisin' the Coast

By Jessica Bowman – email

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - Cruisers made a stop at the Dunbar Village Nursing Home in Bay St. Louis Sunday. The Oldies But Goodies Car Club out of Diamondhead teamed up with the home to celebrate Cruisin' the Coast in style.

As live entertainment filled the air residents, families and employees relived the past.

Margaret Cuevas said, "Pearl white, 66 Pontiac GTO."

Dunbar Village resident Margaret Cuevas was referring to her son's antique cruiser. She said it is only shown off during special events and Cruisin' the Coast is one of them.

"And it's beautiful and he keeps it locked up in his garage," said Cuevas.

Oldies But Goodies Car Club out of Diamondhead helped set the scene for the party, bringing in an array of vintage beauties to line the streets.

Mark Duffy said, "The Oldies But Goodies Car Club realized that the folks here at the nursing home don't have the opportunity to see all the beautiful cars for cruisin'. So we teamed up with Dunbar Village to bring the cars to the people here."

President of the club Mark Duffy said it is a joy seeing those who aren't able to come to all the cruisin' events experience the fun right here in their own home.

"They thoroughly enjoy the cars reminiscing into yesteryears when they had cars like that and enjoyed them so much," said Duffy.

Seeing the pearl white antique, family and friends Cuevas said the party couldn't have been better. And to top their private Cruisin' the Coast off, sweet treats were handed out to everyone.

"Candied apples, nacho cheese, floats, ice cream floats," said Cuevas.

Cuevas said all the residents had a smile on their face and loved to see the cruisers roll in, but they are were thankful for the ones who made that smile possible every year.

"And the staff. Our activity director is great," said Cuevas.

This was the third year Dunbar Village held its own cruisin' party.
