A Facebook group which connects local car enthusiasts has been holding positive and peaceful car meets since April of this year.
The group, Hazleton Car Meets, is intended for holding meets in the Hazleton area and keeping members updated on car related happenings locally. Some topics in the group involve the group's hosted meets, information on events at the Numidia drag strip, and local car shows.
When the group hosts events, they are sure to state a list of rules:
No excessive revving
Clean up after yourself
Have fun "
Their most recent meet on Sunday August 5th received no complaints, however a State Trooper Passing by notified West Hazleton Police that approximately 100 cars and a large group of "young people" were gathered in the Lowes parking lot.
A short while later, Lowes reportedly told Police they did not want the group there after store hours.
The group is now looking for a new location to hold their meets. They are searching for property owners to allow the meets with a large well lit lot in mind.
One option being talked about in the group is speaking with a business owner to hold a fundraiser. If you or someone you know may be interested in providing a location for these meets, join the group and let them know!
