Tour & car show

To the editor:

On behalf of Keweenaw Random Acts of Community Kindness, we would like to thank the Copper Harbor community for once again being host to the 15th Annual End O’ the Road Keweenaw Tour & Car Show held July 21. A great time was had by all!

Thank you to the Keweenaw Cruisers for organizing the ride and the show. Over 80 participants registered for the event with hundreds of spectators enjoying the classic cars & trucks, food and live music by The Fontaines. We would like to thank the Michigan State Police and the Calumet Township Fire Department for their assistance with traffic.

Thank you to everyone that participated. Without your support, we would not be able to assist members of our community in need. We look forward to seeing you on July 20, 2019!
