REO Homecoming 2014 Set for July 17       

        The REO Club of America has invited all REO car, truck and lawn mower owners to the Greater Lansing Area for “Homecoming 2014”. This four day event will commemorate the 150th Birthdays of R. E. and Metta Olds.

          On Wednesday the 16th of July the REO cars and trucks will surround the State Capitol Building, and will proceed from there to various points in the City, including the R. E. Olds Family mausoleum, REO Town, and to the R. E. Olds Transportation Museum.

          On Thursday the 17th the cars and trucks, etc., will be on display in the parking lot of the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 925 South Creyts Road, Lansing, Michigan, 48917.

          That Thursday evening, a Special Presentation by Debbie Stephens, Great-Granddaughter of R. E. and Metta Olds will take place. Debbie will show photos of R. E. and Metta, with family and early autos. Many of these historic photos have never been seen by the public, or viewed outside of the family.

          The Michigan Council for the Humanities has provided a grant so these photos can be projected onto screens for viewing, while Debbie describes the photos. This part of our Homecoming Celebration is open to the public.

          Date: Thursday, July 17th

          Time: 7:30 pm

          Place: Crowne Plaza Hotel Banquet Room

Please call the R. E. Olds Transportation Museum if you have any questions: (517) 372-0529
