REED CITY, Mich., July 1, 2019 – A variety of classic cars, motorcycles and tractors will be on display at the 6th Annual Car and Motorcycle Show at Spectrum Health Reed City Hospital – and another classic, Elvis, will make a guest appearance.

Elvis tribute artist Jake Slater, will perform during the show, which is presented by the hospital’s rehabilitation and nursing center (RNC).

The event is set for Thursday, July 25, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. in the main parking lot at 300 N. Patterson Rd.

“This is the highlight of the summer for our residents and their families,” said Jeff Godfrey, RNC administrator. “The happiness that it brings to their lives is so awesome to see and we are forever grateful to the community and car owners that continue to attend and support this event.”

“Our residents talk about the show for the entire year and we welcome all members of the community to come enjoy an evening of cars, motorcycles, tractors, food and music with the staff and residents of the rehab and nursing center,” Godfrey said.

The event includes dinner cooked on the grill, sweet treats, live music and children’s activities.
