Out and About – Week of July 11th

I really enjoy a good fish dinner, but I’m not a fisherman. Those of you who have this in common with me, will want to head over to the Marcellus VFW this Friday, July 15, for their all-you-can-eat fish dinner. Fish will be served from 5 to 7 P.M. Prices are reasonable too. Only $8 for adults and the cost for ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of June 27th

This is definitely a busy time for residents of the Three Rivers area. It seems that there just isn’t enough time to participate in all of the activities that are available. At least that seems to be the case for the past couple of weeks. Water Festival was almost two weeks ago, and yet it seems as if it were ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of June 20th

Today is officially the first day of summer. This means two things. First, beginning tomorrow, the time of daylight starts getting shorter. The days are not getting shorter, because there still will be twenty four hours in a day. Second, you probably don’t need to pay much attention to those signs that state “Watch for ice on bridge”. On a ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of June 13th

This weekend is the best time to get Out and About in Three Rivers for the entire year. It is, of course, Water Festival, a time when the entire community converges on Downtown TR, Scidmore Park, and Memory Isle. For three days, beginning Thursday, June 16, there will be something for everyone. I’m talking about a parade, rides on the ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of May 30th

Before I forget, here are the answers to last week’s trivia questions: The Hundred Years War lasted 116 years. The country that makes Panama hats is Ecuador. A camel’s hair brush is made of squirrel fur. I thank those who have asked for trivia questions in the past. I enjoy including them in the column from time to time. I ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of May 23rd

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend. It’s a special time for everyone. It’s an opportunity to do some traveling, camping, or just hanging around the old homestead and getting yard work done. In Three Rivers there will be a short parade, followed by a ceremony at Riverside Cemetery. If you’re in the area, please make the time to watch the ... Read More »

Out and About – Week of May 16th

It’s refreshing to see people getting out and about more, now that the weather has improved a great deal from a couple of months ago. One doesn’t need even a jacket or sweatshirt when venturing outside. Kudos to those who take the time to take their dogs for long walks, or, as a family, put some miles on their bicycles. ...

Out and About – Week of May 9th

The community theatre world has lost a very dedicated thespian. Last week, Karen Ruhlig was killed in an auto accident near Kalamazoo. A lot of the details were made public, but I thought I’d add a few more facts that most people may not know. Karen was a rather private person; there were only a few who knew her really ...

Out and About – Week of May 2nd

I don’t know where the month of April went, but for me, it was gone before I realized it was here. And talk about April showers! I won’t even get into that. Diane, of Mobile Bike Repair, has come up with a great idea. She has organized Saturday morning bike rides. Starting this next Saturday, May 7, and continuing every ... Read More »
