Each year in June, the Back to the Bricks Annual Promo Tour provides an opportunity for adventure and camaraderie for hundreds of classic car owners.
The six-day tour is designed to do two things: (1) promote all Back to the Bricks events, especially the August “main event” car show held in downtown Flint and (2) showcase each participating city’s unique features and foster economic development within those visited cities.
This year’s tour has been named the Heritage Promo Tour, as there will be emphasis placed on the history and heritage of each city they visit.
Reed City will be hosting the Back to the Bricks Heritage Promo Tour during their afternoon stopover on Saturday, June 10th from 12:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in downtown Reed City.
The event is expected to have over 200 vehicles registered for the 2017 Tour. While visiting they will spend their time in Reed City having lunch, shopping, showing off their vehicles and visiting the Old Rugged Cross Museum. Reed City is such a welcoming community and we are excited to showcase our wonderful town and rich history.
Come into town on Saturday, June 10th, 2017 to see the Back to the Bricks Heritage Promo Tour!

What is Katie's Kloset? Katie's Kloset is an organization started by the Reed City GFWC (General Federation of Women Club). It all began in memory of Katie Scharlow. She was a member of the Reed City GFWC and one of her main goals was to help provide for the children in need. Forward to September 21st, 2012 and Katie’s battle with cancer took her home. In her honor and memory we wanted to create something that was dear to her heart … thus began Katie's Kloset.
Katie's Kloset works closely with our Reed City schools and we provide for those in need. It began small by being able to purchase winter coats, boots, and snow pants for recess. We have grown to provide coats, boots, snow pants, hats/gloves/scarves, tennis shoes and socks for gym, and backpacks for those in need. We even were able to help a few families who had their houses burn and provided children with a couple of outfits and pajamas to help get them through.
In the beginning we accepted hand me downs – but as we have grown our mission is to provide each student in need with BRAND NEW items. This is something that is so special, and obviously a great need for the individual, we want them to have something that is their own. We now accept monetary donations and as a club we shop for each individuals need as the request comes in. This is also where the Tiara Fun Walk comes in to play. The Tiara Fun Walk is held each year in June (2017 is our fifth year). We use all money raised at this event to fund the Kloset for the upcoming school year.

Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name.
Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933.
Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
