All of Schoolcraft is invited to join the fun on Thursday, August 1 for the Fourth Annual Schoolcraft Summer Palooza, said Deb Christiansen, one of the organizers. Sponsored by the Friends of the Schoolcraft Library, the Palooza is a community event where local business come out to display and present their products and services to the people attending. It is set to open from 5-7:30 p.m. at Wind + James, 555 E. Eliza St. This is a change of venue from the usual Burch Park location.
Proceeds will benefit children’s programming at the Schoolcraft Community Library. There will be games and prizes provided by local businesses, a silent auction, and many arts and craft vendors. Returning is the Fresh Food Fairy, riding her blender bike while serving fruit and vegetable treats to children who want to join in riding the bike. Nonla Taqueria of Schoolcraft will be the food vendor. Contact AnJie Havens at 352-1882 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. RSVP for this event at hop2.us/ssp. It is not required but appreciated as there is a capacity limit at Wind + James and with Nonla vending the food an idea of how many are attending would be helpful, Christiansen said. Those that RSVP can get buy-one-get-one-free photo cards from Bill Christiansen. He may have a drawing specifically for those that respond.
