Over 1,000 pieces of patriotic-themed artwork are on display at Michigan Memorial Park from May 25 through June 4 during the “Art in the Park” exhibit to honor veterans of the U.S. military.

Artwork featured in the display was created by elementary, middle, and high school students that attend Huron Schools.

The display lines the entrance to the park, which is located at 32163 W. Huron River Drive in Flat Rock.

“We hope that visitors to Michigan Memorial Park during Memorial Day weekend and beyond will take a few minutes to view the work of the budding artists. It’s a very meaningful recognition and we are proud to partner with our schools in this endeavor,” said Kelly Dwyer, president of Michigan Memorial Park.

“We also hope that people will visit our Family Service office at the entrance of the park to learn more about other activities including our ‘Free Little Library’ and our walking club.”

This is the third year the park has hosted the art display.

Each piece of artwork on display will be labeled with the artist’s name and grade.

Department of Public Safety updates community on railroad crossing video feed

By Scott BolthouseHub Editor—ScottBolthouse@HuronHub.com

The Huron Township Department of Public Safety updated the community Friday on the progress of a live camera feed that shows the railroad crossings in the township.

The system was launched in August 2017 and has cameras that use solar power. Due to this, sometimes the live feed doesn’t work well during rainy or cloudy days.

The system was launched at no-cost to the department and is a partnership with Bernard Yoscovits and XG Security Services.

The department is currently working with DTE Energy to have power installed at the camera locations.

To access the video, residents can download a smartphone app called ACTi Mobile Client from their phone’s app store.

For directions on how to download the app, visit this article from our archives: Camera system shows live feed of railroad crossings in Huron Township

The Eureka Road crossing in Romulus was recently added to the live feed.

Here is the update posted by Public Safety Director Everette Robbins on the Facebook:
