11 Sept
Road Rally & Scenic Lunch on 9/11!


First, let me say we hope that this finds you and your family happy and healthy! Coming out of this pandemic we're all still trying to piece together what the new normal will be. In the meantime, with restrictions being lifted and folks finally able to get out and enjoy life a bit more, we have decided to give our clients a way to reconnect with the things they love!


You are cordially invited to the First Annual

Bliss & Thompson Financial Services Road Rally & Lunch!

September 11, 2021 at 9:00am 

Start: VFW Hall, 3400 Veterans Dr, Traverse City, MI
Finish: James R. Johnson Park, 11698 S. Reynolds St, Empire, MI

We'll gather at the VFW Hall (right across from our office) at 9:00am, then at 10:00am get on the road and cruise to Empire where we'll enjoy lunch! We'd like to emphasize there will be no presentation, no sales pitch nor anything of that nature.



Our route:
  • We will turn right onto Veterans Drive, then left on to 14th street to Division/US 31, where you’ll turn right.
  • Take US 31 until you hit M-22.
  • Once on M-22 we will travel up to Suttons Bay and turn left on M-204 and continue on it until we hit Lake Leelanau, and then left on to M-22 once again.
  • Follow M-22 down the coast to our final destination in Empire.
When we arrive in Empire we will be sitting down for lunch, plus (obviously) some kicking of the tires and admiring of each other’s rides. So, if you have a car, truck or motorcycle that is special to you and you'd allow us to admire it, join us at the VFW Hall parking lot on Saturday morning!

Feel free to invite a fellow car enthusiast to come along! Just forward the email invitation to them or share this web page so they can register themselves (we want to ensure we have enough lunch for everyone!). The more vehicles we have to admire the more fun we will have together!

If you do not want to cruise with us, you are welcome to meet us at the VFW Hall (prior to our departure at 10:00am) or in Empire to hang out and ogle some beautiful machines! We can't wait to see everyone (in person!), share a bite of food in a lovely setting, and remember with reverence the importance of the 9/11 date. 

Call our office at 231-933-6250 if you have questions! Otherwise, click the REGISTER Button to confirm your attendance with the number of folks traveling in your car. THANKS!
