Blue Star Memorial dedication Saturda
Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce
It’s going to be a greatweek. There’s just no otherway I could begin thisweek’s Chamber Notes,because we’ve got somereally cool stuff happeningthroughout our community.The event that ismost on my mind is thededication of the Blue StarMemorial to honor theArmed Forces who havedefended our country. Thisspecial event is sponsoredby the Spirit of the WoodsGarden Club and will takeplace Saturday at 2 p.m.on Memorial Drive. I’mhonored to have been askedto speak at this dedicationand I’m especially honoredto speak while wearing my cap as a proud member of American Legion Post #10.Each week, when I writeabout our community andthe special quality of life we enjoy here in ManisteeCounty I can’t help butrecognize that it is our veterans, active duty mili-tary, reserves and NationalGuard that we ultimately have to thank for it.So here’s your suggestedSaturday itinerary — start by visiting the first-of-the- year Farmers Market acrossfrom Dial-A-Ride and selectproduce and other freshproducts produced andgrown by Manistee County and Michigan farms.Then walk across the bridge (in celebration of the start of Healthy ActiveManistee week) and havelunch downtown. Afterlunch, shop a little — better yet, shop a lot.Finally, walk back acrossthe bridge for the BlueStar Memorial dedicationceremony. It’s going to be agreat week.
