Ford's Centennial Tour To Visit Mobile

Mobile, Alabama has been designated as one of 100 cities Ford Motor Company executives will visit as part of the company's Centennial celebration. The 100-city road show is a prelude to Ford's 100th anniversary, which will be held from June 12-16 on the grounds of the company's world headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.

Tony Brown, Ford Vice President, Global Purchasing, and former Mobile resident, will visit Mobile on Thursday, May 22 and Friday, May 23. On Friday morning, Brown is scheduled to recognize Mobile's centenarians at the beautiful new Mobile Museum of Art in Langan Park. Ford's Centennial celebration will culminate on Friday evening at Hank Aaron Stadium when the Mobile BayBears host the Birmingham Barons.

"Our founder, Henry Ford, put America on wheels," noted Brown. "It is fitting that we should mark our 100th year in business by taking to the open road. We want to share our enthusiasm about Ford's Centennial and show our appreciation to our dealers and their customers throughout the U.S.A."

"I'm delighted to come back to Mobile," said Brown, who resided in Mobile for five years. "It is a wonderful community and a natural destination for our Centennial tour as both Mobile and Ford are embarking on their next 100 years." Mobile was founded in 1702 and Ford was founded in 1903.
