Wedding Announcement

Camden Kaczmarczyk and Matthew McArdle

June 4, 2016


Those of you who have been at Grattan in the past few years will likely remember Camden Kaczmarczyk and her sister Carryn. Oh yes, and probably proud father, John.


GR Auto Gallery Car Show

We've been invited to attend the 5th annual Car Show & Cruise-In at the GR Auto Gallery on Saturday, June 18 from 9 am until 2 am. It's a free event with no pre-registration. There will be free t-shirts for the first 50 cars, and contests, give-aways, and trophies for classes along with Best in Show and People's Choice. Please call Tom at 616 719-4896 if you have questions.

Parade Orphans Dinner Drive

For those of you who aren't heading for Vermont, Len and Bonnie Gawron offer a pleasant alternative. Join the driving tour at 3:30 on Saturday, June 25 for a 4:00 departure from the Nunica area. Everyone will eventually end up at Pereddie's Italian Restaurant in Holland for a Happy Hour and dinner. Please RSVP no later than June 20 to Len Gawron. You can find more details here.




Stickmann Bäeckerei Event

Herb Welz decided that just doing this once wasn't enough, so he's invited the WMR crew back to his facility in MIddleville on Saturday, July 9. Details are forthcoming, but hold the date for another great event.
Deutsche Marques

While not a club-sanctioned event, we would be remiss if we didn't mention the upcoming Deutsche Marques event at the Gilmore Car Museum, also on July 9. This gathering features the best that Germany has to offer, with Porsche, Audi, BMW, Mercedes and VW all having separate showing areas. There are awards for the best cars in a number of categories. You can find more information at the event's website, here.


 1970s PCA WMR Reunion

If you know whose car this was, then you're a prime candidate for an informal 1970s WMR reunion. This will take place in conjunction with the Deutsche Marques event on July 9. We're planning to gather around the old gas station at around 11:00 AM. Once we get done reminiscing (which might take a while) we will head off to the Stickmann Bäeckerei event in Middleville. Keep visiting this page for more information. Oh yes - please feel free to show up even you don't know who might be the owner of the 914.
