Walmart in Houghton Lake served donuts and coffee to approximately 300 tour participants. West Branch rolled out the Red Carpet to welcome the Promo Tour on Flag Day, June 14. Team Hodges, the Chevy/Mopar dealer in town, fed lunch to all the participants, and gave out dozens of door prizes. West Branch dismissed school, and organized a parade. There were hundreds of people of all ages waving flags and cheering as we drove by, and a police escort led the way to the car show on Main Street in downtown West Branch. The local Rods and Relics Car Club gave away $400 in gas cards at the end of the event.
