Fall activities around the community

Welcome to beautiful October and this month’s edition. This issue highlights our local high school athletes and the happenings in our villages.

Southwest Michigan is a great place to live, especially in the fall. Some of the maples are showing hints of their autumn display, days are becoming shorter, and our nights are cooler. I hope you are enjoying life in our part of the world!

Schoolcraft Ladies Library, Tea and Tour, October 23, 10 a.m.

St. Vincent de Paul of St. Martin of Tours sponsors walk to help those in need

Ever wonder how you can make a difference for those in your community? Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 10, and join your friends and neighbors for a fundraiser walk sponsored by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Vicksburg. Registration and the walk will be at the Vicksburg Recreation Area/Trail parking lot at 12538 S. Sprinkle Road starting at 1 p.m. Walkers are encouraged to make a personal donation and collect pledges from other supporters. Together, we will help our local Society of St. Vincent de Paul raise funds – and awareness – to help our friends in need from this area who are struggling with homelessness, hunger, overdue bills and more during these difficult times.

Calling all knitters!

The Vicksburg United Methodist Church Council is hosting “Knitting in November” on November 6 and 13 from 9 a.m.-noon. The VUMC Church Council is planning the event to honor Del and Myrna Forsythe’s financial legacy to the church. The goal is to provide knitters with yarn so that they can create two items (scarves, hats, or mittens). This event is open to all community members who like to knit and help those in need. The council asks that one knitted item is donated to South County and the other will be sold with the proceeds going back into the fund to keep it going. The council will also support local businesses by purchasing food and door prizes for each day’s knitters. Interested knitters can contact Mary Burke at malburke2@aol.com
