EAST GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- President Ford is now greeting visitors to the East Grand Rapids Community Center.  A scale model of the bronze statute of the late President that stands in the U.S. Capitol rotunda was unveiled on Saturday in Ford's hometown.

The sculpture was a gift from Marty and Sue Allen and commemorates Ford's 100th birthday.  He assumed the presidency in 1974 with the resignation of Richard Nixon and was defeated in 1976 by Democrat Jimmy Carter.
