Bretz RV & Marine will welcome Montana Gov. Steve Bullock at a public flag-raising ceremony at its new dealership constructed in Billings, Mont.
The June 9 ceremony will kick off the summer season and is dedicated to “all those who have served this country in the past, are currently serving, or will serve in the future,” the company said in a news release.
The event is open to the public and will be attended by various non-profit organizations, armed forces and veteran groups.
Bretz RV & Marine also will gear the ceremony toward creating awareness for National Camping Month during the month of June, as well as the National Park Service Centennial as 2016 marks the year of its 100th birthday.
The event lasts from noon to 3 p.m., with the flag-raising ceremony from 2:15 to 3 p.m. More than 100 people are expected to attend.
“At the dealerships, we are privileged to work with many individuals who have or are currently serving our country. We felt by raising this flag in Billings, we could share our appreciation for the freedoms we are all able to enjoy. We want to say thank you for the sacrifices made by the men and women who have dedicated themselves to serving our country,” Dustin Bretz said.
Just a half a mile down the road from the old location, the new Billings dealership offers more room for special events such as this ceremony, as well as larger inventory and service to the Billings area.
The dealership spans 35 acres and includes a 40,000-sqare-foot space that is home to the sales, parts, and service departments. The facility includes a dedicated RV collision center, second story showroom.
