Road trip kicks off Saturday in Prescott

The Prescott Public Library will host a kick-off celebration for the Road Trip for Readers fundraiser from 10:30 a.m.-noon this Saturday.

Attendees will get to see Greg Lauser’s 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 and learn about the rigors of long-distance travel in a classic car.

Bring the kids for some special road trip stories and a photo op with the Austin-Healey. Lauser and Nancy Lauser will drive 5,000 miles from Prescott to Thunder Bay, Ontario, to raise money for the Prescott library and Malone Elementary’s Media Center.

One can support them by making a pledge or donation.

For more information, visit or pick up a brochure at the library. Pictured are the Lausers with their Austin-Healey 3000. (Submitted photo)
