The Jet Expressbusiness was up 60% as compared to pastLabor Day weekends. There were 1,400to 2,000 boats on the lake for the BattleReenactment with over 10,000 people onthe water Labor Day. 100,000 people vis-ited US ports during the weekend events.On Sept. 1 boat lines set a new record forpassengers.

The mums are of various colorsand were grown by Bench’s Greenhouse in Elmore, ac-cording to superintendant Jeff Saffran. The SA&G ceasedplanting the beautiful fall display a few years ago in an ef-fort to save money. This year, however, thanks to a $1,000grant from the Ottawa County Community Foundationand a signicant gift from the family of Marilyn Bandeldthe tradition was restored.Chrysanthemums are popular fall owers because of their bright colors and ability to withstand frosts oftenwell into November. Mums are a great example of a plantthat has been hybridized – bred to one another from awide array of varieties to produce plants with different leaf and ower characteristics. Originally grown in China asa owering herb, both the garden, or hardy, mums at theSA&G and the greenhouse mums that are used in owerarranging came from the same parent plant hundreds of  years ago – a golden-yellow daisy like mum. It wasn’t un-til the late 1700’s that mums were cultivated in the U.S.Mums have different signicance in different culturesThe SA&G closes for the season on October 31 and is lo-cated at 19255 West Portage River South Road in Elmore.Hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. andSundays noon–4 p.m. For more information call 419 862-3182 or visit www.schedel-gardens.org.
