And Camarol production will be brought back to the U.S. from the current plant that builds it in Canada. There's nice article at MLive with quotes from Local 652 President Mike Green, and drawings of Camaros through the years.
May 15 Pride Ride
The 15th annual Pride Ride for motorcycle safety awareness will take place on May 15. Please see the pdf's below for complete details and registration form. Deadline for T-shirts is April 15, firm.
This is the last year for this ride, unless someone is interested in taking over the event.

We have had a great time and thank everyone for their support.
