HOMTV spoke with Jordan Munsters, the President of High Caliber, “Last year everybody was shut down, we didn’t have car shows, we didn’t have cruise-ins. Everybody missed it and it’s a very tight community out here. Everybody knows one another and comes through and everyone was excited to get everyone together to host something here.”
High Caliber plans on hosting this event in the future and someday Munsters hopes to fill the Meridian Mall and added, “It’s awesome to see everyone get together. I had one of the girls from the limbo contest say that was the most fun she had in 2 years. That’s what we’re about at High Caliber, getting people to have fun and creating joy and that’s connecting people. That’s what we’re doing out here and everyone is a part of that. I’m thankful we have an awesome community for this.”
