Mark your calendars now for our annual excursion to the Detroit/NAIAS Auto Show at Cobo Hall on Tuesday, June 16, 2020.  This year’s show will be a part of an extensive auto-themed celebration encompassing much of the adjacent downtown area and should be an exciting event.


The Cobo exhibition will feature the latest production models from automakers around the world and many special show cars, including new electric vehicles.  We will have two buses again this year, as we anticipate high demand for this event.  Tom Sellers Ford has generously agreed once again to provide us with free admission tickets to the Cobo show. Spouses and friends are invited.


Ticket sales will begin on Friday, May 22.  Check your May Reminder for more details about this popular event.

Special Events Committee


The Special Events Committee conducts monthly events for the entertainment and education of our members and guests.  Typical events are a bus trip to a sporting event or play, a visit to a museum or other point of interest, a cruise on one of the local waterways, and a tour of local attractions.


Each event is conducted by a three-or- four man team.  No prior experience running events is needed.  We’ll train you in what to do, and you’ll enjoy doing it!
