Summer has begun in a flurry of activity in the area. Multiple updates and improvements are happening in our districts’ school buildings, and many streets in the village of Vicksburg are torn up, making navigation difficult. I keep reminding myself how wonderful it will be when it is finished.

Button collectors, take note!

The Southwest Button Box Button Club meets the second Saturday of each month at the Main St. Pub in Vicksburg at 11 a.m. The group’s members collect vintage and antique clothing buttons. Meetings are open to anyone interested in learning and collecting.

First Presbyterian Church Garage Sale

A Garage Sale at First Presbyterian Church of Schoolcraft will be held Friday, August 20th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, August 21st from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Proceeds go to the general fund for missions, upkeep of the buildings, grounds maintenance, Sunday school supplies and choir music! 

Bank Street Flea Market moves to Vicksburg

Bank Street Flea Market joins Vicksburg Vintage Market at the Vicksburg Historic Village’s pavilion on Sundays. Kalamazoo’s Bank Street Market is undergoing renovations which initiated the move to Vicksburg. This should be an interesting stop for area collectors this summer!

Encore Magazine available locally

The Encore Magazine is now available outside Rise N Dine in Vicksburg. This month’s edition’s “Hidden in Plain Sight” article includes Vicksburg’s Historic Village and the Quilt Trail.
