General Motors’ Fisher body plant came to Kalamazoo some fifty years ago and brought with it lots of folks looking for good-paying jobs. It’s time to get this group together once again, according to Bruce Aldrich. He has organized the 50th anniversary golf outing for UAW workers and salaried employees on Friday, Sept. 18, at State’s Golf course between Schoolcraft and Vicksburg.
There will be a shotgun start at 10 a.m. as a four-person scramble. Prizes will be awarded for the longest drive for men from the gold tees, women from the red tees. A putting contest on the front and back practice putting green is offered at $2 per person entry fee, above the $30 each for the actual 18 holes and buffet lunch in the club house.
The event is limited to 144 former employees and their guests, according to Aldrich. He can be reached at 269-345-4010 for further information and registration.
