Lee Stock's 1921 Model T.

On Saturday, June 12, 2021, in the center of the Village of Belleville at the old train depot, there will be a gathering for the 100th birthday celebration of Lee Stock's 1921 Model T.

The event will begin at 11:30 a.m., and there will be refreshments available (no alcohol is permitted).

According to Wikipedia, the Ford Model T was only produced from 1908 until 1927, and was considered the first affordable automobile, which made car travel available to middle-class Americans. It was also known as the Tin Lizzie. The Model T was so affordable and became so popular at one point that it is estimated that a majority of Americans owned one. Between 1913 and 1927, Ford factories produced more than 15 million Model Ts.

If you have a pre-war car (1942 and older), you are invited to join the group. There will be plenty of parking available and a group photo will be taken at approximately 12:45 p.m. If you don't have a pre-war car - come anyway! There's enough parking off-site to accommodate everyone.

At 1:00 p.m., the 1941 Belleville fire truck will lead participants on a tour through the streets of Belleville.

Pass the word - they're hoping for a great turn out!
