We  Love Michigan Weekend at Howmet Playhouse

Michigan Music and Documentaries
August 11-13

Aug 11 Shout Sister Shout

Cool down on a hot August night with the cool, sweet jazz stylings of Shout Sister Shout featuring Rachel Davis. “The quintet is a tribute to the smoky, sophisticated sound of 1930s and '40s jazz, with plenty of influence from Cole Porter, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole Trio, and Sarah Vaughan, and it's a trip to hear Davis channel those old greats. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a bunch of guys playing the heck out of vintage instruments as backup.” The Metro Times- Detroit, MI

Pulitzer-prize winning and alcoholic playwright Joseph Harris arrives in Stubenville, OH, to write a play comissioned by a local theater and is met by a callow intern.

Cruz'In 2011!

Cruz'In 2011 . . . A NEW gathering location for an Old Favorite.

Cars from the Cruz’In era will be roaring into Montague and Whitehall Friday, July 29 for the popular Cruz'In the annual free, non-alcohol, family event.  The parade will include pre-1975 classic cars, hot rods and muscle cars.

Cruz’In has grown every year with last year’s attendance over 5,000 people and included 500 classic cars in the parade.

A new twist this year will be the gathering area before the parade. Due to construction at Whitehall Middle School parking lot, the cars will have a new line-up area. The classic cars will follow the signs and gather at Funnell Field in Whitehall.

Additionally, to make room for the additional cars expected this year additional street areas will be blocked off in Montague. Closed areas include: Dowling Street - from the stoplight to Old Channel Trail; Ferry Street from Church to Hunt Streets; and Spring Street from Water to past Ferry Street.

Large Crowd Celebrates New MAPS Facilities

Large Crowd Celebrates New MAPS Facilities

From: http://www.montague.k12.mi.us/

On June 12 a large crowd helped dedicate two new MAPS buildings--the Montague Area Childhood Center and the Arland Cederquist Transportation and Maintanance Facility.
 
The perfect summer afternoon featured Jacquie Wood-trained singers and drummers, the raising of an American flag from the battlefield in Afghanistan, ribbon cutting, remarks from Representative Holly Hughes, URS architects, Triangle Construction and from MAPS leaders.  Author Denise Rowe read and acted out one of her original works.  Families enjoyed cake, building tours and pride in what our community has accomplished.  Click for pictures.
