Blessing of the Buses -- May 5, 2018
In keeping with the spirit of “The Blessing of the Bikes” typically reserved for our Hell’s Yuppies friends, please join us on May 5, 2018 for The Blessing of the Buses!
The Blessing of the Buses is a spin on the ever popular Blessing of the Bikes. This second annual Blessing of the Buses is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2018. It is a rain or shine event and is open to anyone owning any of the four generations of VW buses.
Father Angelo Maggos, a former bus owner, will perform the blessing at 11:00AM at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church located at 2245 East Baldwin Road; Grand Blanc, MI 48439 with lunch at the Church to follow the blessing -- if faced with inclement weather, lunch will be inside the Church Hall.
For those of interested, a group of contiguous campsites will be reserved at Groveland Oaks County Park ((248) 634-9811) located at 14555 Dixie Highway; Holly, MI 48442. The park is an approximate fifteen minute drive and nine miles from the Church. Campsites are classified as modern having both electric and water service; a fire ring is also resident on each site. Additionally, hot showers and full toilet facilities will be open for our group. We will also have access to a pavilion where live music will be provided beginning early evening. BTW, you can camp the evening before the blessing. Make your reservations directly with the campground but please contact me to confirm and review details.
Our vision is a well-intended get together among like-minded folks and to grow the event into a regional kick-off of the VW Bus camping season in Michigan. We encourage you to mark your calendars and please keep in touch with event hosts Jim and/or Liz Christopher: firstname.lastname@example.org or (810) 217-1280 - Jim's Mobile.
Stay well and look forward to seeing you May of 2018! And, don't hesitate to spread the word….
