Schoolcraft’s 4th of July celebration returning

2nd grader Charleigh Gardner won the design contest.

After a two-year absence, the Schoolcraft 4th of July celebration is back. This year is the 95th anniversary of Schoolcraft’s celebration of our nation’s Independence Day.

This family-friendly event will include the parade, car show, pancake breakfast, food trucks, Underground Railroad House tours – and those fireworks, presenting by Great Lakes Fireworks.

The grand marshals for this year’s parade are Peg Crissman, Jan McNally and Nancy Rafferty, three women who work in the Schoolcraft Eagle’s Nest Food Pantry providing supplies to our local community.

A T-shirt contest was held for Schoolcraft elementary students. The winning design was created by Charleigh Gardner, a 2nd grader in Mr. Allgor’s class. Those clicking the “Shop” tab on the website can order a T-shirt or other Schoolcraft 4th of July gear. Proceeds will help to fund the celebration.

Donation boxes have also been placed in several local businesses in Schoolcraft and Vicksburg. Donation checks should be made out to the Schoolcraft 4th of July Committee and can be mailed to the Village of Schoolcraft, 442 N. Grand St, Schoolcraft, MI 49087.
