Farmers and vintage market set for May 8, 2021 at Lajko Park in New Boston
Event will be on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 10 a.m – 4 p.m
Details from the event’s Facebook page:
Join the Huron Township Historical Commission as we showcase the local farmers, crafters and collectors in and near our township! This event is FREE to the public and FREE for vendors!
Do you have produce you grow? Honey you harvest? Soap you make? Have you re-purpose something old into something new and usable? Do you have some vintage pieces just looking for a home? OR Just looking to support those who do? Then this event is for you!
We are offering one FREE 10’x 10′ space to you if you are a maker, collector, creator, raiser or grower! We will have additional 10′ x 10′ spaced available for a $25.00 fee.
We are very selective of what types of crafters/vendors and how many we allow of a certain type. Last year, we had some “no shows” and to avoid that this year, we are asking for a $50 refundable deposit to hold your spot. You will get the deposit back when you check in the morning of the event.
For questions, contact: Candace Myshock @ 734.307.4817 or Stacey Reynolds @ 734.925.1498— email email@example.com or message us on Facebook.
The application can be found in the comments and it is pinned to the top of our main page.

A New Boston resident won nearly $400,000 after playing a Michigan lottery game.
Diane Newman of New Boston matched the five white balls drawn Dec. 21 to win the big prize.
She bought her winning ticket at the Circle K gas station, located at 1330 Monroe St. in Carleton.
“I used to buy Lottery tickets for my husband and I, but since he retired, he’s been buying them,” said Newman. “We like to play a little bit of everything together.
“We checked our ticket the morning after the drawing and we couldn’t believe we had won! We are still shocked, but it’s a big relief for us.
Newman visited Lottery headquarters to claim her big prize.
She chose to receive a one-time lump sum payment of about $390,000, rather than annual payments of $25,000 for 20 years or life, whichever is greater.
With her winnings, she plans to share with family and take a vacation.
“Winning means I can slow down with work and enjoy life with my husband,” said Newman.

With COVID-19 shutting down schools all over the country, students are left without the ability to get the lunch that they would normally get from their school cafeteria.
As a way to remedy this, the Food Service team in the Huron School District decided to come up with a solution to this problem to help the students get the food they need.
Nella Shock and the rest of the Food Service team have set up a system where parents can drive to the East entrance of Huron High School and receive food for their kids for the week on Mondays and Thursdays.
The meals being distributed consist of a variety of different foods that would have been offered in the situation that school wasn’t closed down for COVID, including various fruits, vegetables, milk, cookies, pizza kits, and more.
This food distribution program has been running since the original lockdown in March, when schools started shutting down due to COVID concerns. Around the time the school year would have ended in June, they put the program on hold.
It was resumed on Nov. 16 to continue giving meals to the students, but will be going on a hiatus for Christmas break on Dec. 18.
After Christmas break, the Food Service team will be back on Jan. 4 to continue distributing food on Mondays and Thursdays until Jan. 19, when they will only be distributing the meals on Mondays from that point forward.
Every Monday and Thursday during the program, Nella and her team arrive at the school at 7:30 a.m. and spend over four hours making sure that everything is in order.
They also would spend days preparing for their next distribution day.
The team would then hand out the meals for the families of more than 600 kids from 1:00-3:00 p.m.
To help spread some holiday cheer for all the students, the team went above and beyond by writing Christmas cards for the kids to go along with their meals last week.
In addition to being an important nutritional resource for the students in the district, the program has also helped the Food Service members by allowing them to work during these difficult pandemic times.
Nella and her team work tirelessly to make sure that this operation can work smoothly, and it shows with how many people are able to still get food from the school.

Sirens were blaring and lights were flashing throughout Huron Township on Sunday, but it wasn’t exactly a matter of public safety.
Instead, it was Santa Claus and his crew who made a special visit to Huron Township on Sunday.
Santa, Mrs. Claus, and his elves received a special escort from Huron Township Department of Public Safety vehicles, bringing Christmas cheer to families in various parts of the township.
“We had a great time getting the opportunity to escort Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the elves throughout our community! We did our best to see as many of you as we could. Nothing was better than seeing the smiles and signs of the children as our visitors passed them by,” a Facebook post from the public safety department said. “Equally as great was the support, waves, and thumbs up from the moms and dads!”
