2013 Brickwork on North Grand Avenue

Tonight is the Fowlerville High School Homecoming and the work being done on North Grand Avenue has been temporarily suspended so the parade come travel this route.  According to reliable sources, this initial layer of asphalt was laid down, covering everything including the manhole covers.  

After tonight's parade, the roadblocks will go back up and work will commence next week, uncovering the manhole covers and eventually applying the final layer after whatever work needs to be done.

For now, here are a couple pictures of the new brickwork and the initial layer.  Progress is a wonderful thing!

2013 Farmers' Market

Sometimes, one happens to be in the right place at the right time.  I was heading south on South Grand when I found traffic to be backed up a bit.  Cones and workers were in place, directing our every move, so they could install a banner over the road.  I had no idea what it was for, but figured I'd find out soon enough.
After a few quite errands and deliveries, I came back, heading north, to see the Farmers' Market being touted.  Very cool. 

If you have not made it to the market, head there soon as the season is quickly coming to a close.

1944 Honor Roll Dedication

The Fowlerville Library recently received a small envelope with a note and the following piece of paper: 
I am wondering if any of my readers might know of this kind of a ceremony.  It sounds like the scouts were quite active in the community and you might recognize a few names, especially if you've read any of this website.  Deo Blackmer was the son of S.T. Blackmer, the founder of the men's clothing store in Fowlerville that eventually was bought out by Frank Utter and became Utter's Menswear.  Betty Woods was the wife of Tom Woods, owner of Woods Drugs.

If you search on any of these names (upper right hand corner), you will find any articles written about these residents of Fowlerville.
