ANTIQUE AUTOMOBILE CLUB OF AMERICA – LAWRENCE REGION
The Lawrence Region AACA was chartered in 1976, following several years as a chapter of the Topeka Region AACA. Our members are dedicated to the restoration, preservation and enjoyment of old cars. Our cars range from Model T’s, Model A’s, a Liberty, classic Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs to Mustangs, Trive-Five Chevys, GTOs, and Camaros. We sponsor two major events each year: a swap meet in May and a car show in October. We hold monthly meetings along with picnics, cruise-in, tours and daytrips. You must be a member of AACA to be a member of our regional chapter, but you don’t have to own an antique automobile.
501 C(4) ORGanization
The Lawrence Region, Antique Automobile Association of America is exempt from income tax under Internal Revenue Code, Section 501(c)4, as a SOCIAL WELFARE
ORGANIZATION, not organized for profit but operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare.
As an organization that is considered to be operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare, LRAACA is primarily engaged in promoting the common good and
welfare for Douglas County and its residents. As such, LRAACA is not a social club for the pleasure, benefit or recreation of its members, but benefits the community at
large through its sponsorship of public activities, such as the annual car show and annual swap meet.
LRAACA activities draw participants from surrounding states and thereby enhance Douglas County’s reputation and benefit the local tax base. Our activities not only provide Douglas County residents with low cost public events, but also support local charitable organizations. These charitable organizations receive direct support
through LRAACA member participation in local parades and shows, and are provided fund-raising opportunities at LRAACA events.
LRAACA does not directly or indirectly participate or intervene in any political campaign on behalf or in opposition of any candidate for public office, not does it
carry on a business with the general public in a manner similar to for-profit organizations.
