The Dodge Brothers Club is celebrating the Dodge Centennial with a special, limited-edition poster showcasing the largest gathering ever of early Dodge Brothers vehicles.

The Centennial gathering photo was taken June 26 at Meadow Brook Hall, the home built by  Matilda Dodge Wilson, John Dodge’s widow, in Rochester Hills, Michigan. It was one of the highlights of the Club’s six-day Centennial Tour event that ran from June 22 to June 27.

“The poster spotlights the biggest gathering of 1914-1938 Dodge Brothers vehicles ever, at least that we are aware of,” said Barry Cogan, the club’s president. “Our annual club gathering was very special this year, as it coincided with the 100th anniversary of the Dodge brand. This limited-edition offering provides the perfect way to commemorate the centennial of the vehicles produced by John and Horace Dodge, and demonstrate how their legacy lives on today.”

The Club’s 35th annual summer drew nearly 325 attendees from six different countries, including a contingent of about 30 owners from Australia and New Zealand. There were 91 registered Dodge Brothers vehicles, of which 80 can be seen in the poster.

The 36ʺ x 12ʺ limited-edition poster will be available for a donation of $5 plus S & H, at the Dodge Brothers Club’s online store, www.dodgebrothersclub.org. They will also be available at the Fall Hershey Region AACA Meet, scheduled for October 8–11, at the Dodge Brothers Club display.

The Dodge Brothers Club was founded in 1983 and incorporated in 1986 for the research and preservation of Dodge Brothers Motor Vehicles and Graham Brothers Commercial Vehicles, dating from 1914-1938. The club hosts an annual meet each year, alternating between locations east and west of the Mississippi River.
