A fundraiser to make improvements to the Danbury War Memorial is being held Sunday.  Activities at Rogers Park have been canceled that day so the inaugural War Memorial Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show can take place.  The event starts at 10am with a color guard ceremony, judging at noon and trophies awarded at 3pm.  Every kind of vehicle will be accepted into the show, which has 27 judging categories.  Participating vehicles will enter from Coalpit Hill Road and Lions Way and must pay a 20-dollar fee which will go toward renovations inside the nonprofit recreational and educational facility.  Spectator parking will be along Main Street and Patriot Garage.  Shuttle buses will run from City Hall to Rogers Park between 11am and 5pm.  The rain date is May 5.
