STANLEY CUP IN MANCELONA
On September 19, 2008 at 1:55 a.m., Mancelona Police Officer Rod Vesey was patrolling the streets in the Village of Mancelona. He stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation somewhere along East State Street. One thing led to another, and he soon discovered why the driver was in such a rush. Mike Bolt, "keeper of the cup," was transporting The Stanley Cup. Earlier, he delivered the Cup to White Pine Middle School in Saginaw where the Detroit Red Wings made a stop during their pre-season tour. The Red Wings were on their way to training camp in Traverse City, and Mike, who was custodian of the Cup, traveled through Mancelona on his way to Gaylord. Officer Vesey snapped a photo with his cell phone, and was lucky enough to have one taken of him, touching the Stanley Cup.
