Public celebrates 75 years for Studebaker sign


It's a big anniversary for the planting of the Studebaker trees at Bendix Woods County Park.

Hundreds of people gathered to celebrate the 75th anniversary for the historic trees and also recognized the impact of the Studebaker Corporation.

It was a blast from the past with a display of Studebaker cars, an ice cream social, tours, and other 1930's activities.

"It's a day to kind of celebrate not only the trees and their legacy, but also the Studebaker Corporation and just the time period, so it's been a nice day for families," says Evie Kirkwood, St. Joseph County Parks Director.

There were even hay rides, as the park kicked off hay ride season Sunday.
