What’s Going On: NHS Closing Monday, Book Event Tuesday, Market Kudos, Show Us Your Pictures and Picture Show Stays
From Newaygo Superintendent Dr. Peg Mathis:
“This is to let you know that Newaygo High School will be closed on Monday, Sept. 21 due to more than 1 positive COVID case. The individuals affected do not ride our buses and do not have family members at our other buildings, therefore, the Elementary and Middle School will stay open.
“This is out of an abundance of caution and will give us time to complete contract tracing and make a decision about the rest of this week.
“Thank you for your patience.”
Jennifer Graeser Dornbush who made an appearance at the FADL earlier this year will be in town again on Tuesday for an outdoor book launch party starting at 7pm . Attendants should bring their own chairs and must call 231-928-0256 to register for the event. The event will also be livestreamed on the Fremont Area District Library Facebook page.
“Hole in the Woods” is based on the true-life murder case in 1989 of Shannon Siders from Newaygo County, Michigan. Ms J G D will be signing books and sharing a few words including a bit of a reading from her book we have heard..
The Newaygo Farmer’s Market ended it’s summer-long run last Friday and we are sending kudos to Ramona Deters Renee Finkbeiner and Danya VanderLugt the market triumvirate who breathed life back into the weekly community gathering that had fallen by the wayside last year.
The vendors we most enjoyed were Happy Hog Farm, Kaufman’s Produce and Little Mitten Soaps.
You can visit Little Mitten’s website https://www.littlemittensoaps.com/ to check out their distinctive creations .
Happy Hog Farm has a facebook page where you can peruse their porcine products.
Kaufman’s Produce? No website nor facebook page but their stand at 7547 Croswell is a cornucopia of great looking veggies and the farm has become a regular stop for N3WH.
One of the possible side effects of the pandemic has been a resurgence of hiking in and around our area. We have noted the facebook and Instagram posts folks are tossing out depicting their hiking adventures.
Well hikers, have we got a contest for you.
NCCA Artsplace is having their annual Fall Photo contest, a free competition that challenges entrants to capture a slice of fall and submit it for judging. Details at https://www.nearnorthnow.com/features-and-fun/ncca-artsplace-fall-photography-contest9712939
