NEWSLETTER #43 - Summer 2010


The "Story of Willow Run" was a black and white documentary produced by the Ford Motor Company in 1945, describing the history of the legendary Willow Run bomber plant in the World War II period. It recounts the building of the massive assembly plant, and details the production process for constructing the more than 8,000 B-24 heavy bombers turned out by the plant from 1942-1945. Go to the link below to watch a ten-minute excerpt of this fascinating documentary.

To order show/attraction tickets other than those listed as part of our reunion events:  This link is to order from the Grand Plaza Hotel Gift Shop.

(I found it easier, though, to call the Grand Plaza and talk to them in person, 1-800-850-6646).  If you are registered at the hotel, you can charge your tickets to your room and pay when you check out.  They will then have vouchers at the front desk for you to pick for each show you order.
