Out and About – Week of May 28th

Probably the biggest event of the year, Water Festival, is two weeks away. It seems that it was only a month ago that the first committee meeting was held to start planning it. Now, the parade entrants are all in, and the packets are ready for pick-up. The car show is ready for nice weather, and it won’t be long …

Out and About – Week of May 21st

I spent an hour or two visiting with a classmate the other day. He doesn’t live locally, so we don’t see each other as often as we’d like. He’s a “snowbird”, which means that he and his wife spend the winter months in Florida. When I think of Florida, I picture several things: senior citizens eating dinner at 4 P.M., …

Out and About – Week of May 14th

I’m hoping that this past weekend, all you mothers were surrounded by your children and reminded of how much you are loved by all. If this did happen, you are to be commended for doing a great job of parenting. Savor the time. In a perfect world, every day would be Mother’s Day. With the weather being as nice as …

Out and About – Week of May 7th

This Sunday, May 13, is Mother’s Day, a day set aside each year to honor the lady responsible for giving us life. My mother has been gone for over twenty-five years now, and I still miss her every day. If your mother is still alive, let her know how much she means to you, and thank her for giving you life. …

Out and About – Week of April 30th

When I think of spring cleaning, I can’t help but think of the Mendon “Dust Off”. The 49th Annual Old Car Dust Off happens next Sunday, May 6, from 8 A.M. to 3 P.M., at the Mendon High School parking lot, located at the intersection of North Nottawa Street and Kirby Road in Mendon. It will be a perfect opportunity …

Out and About – Week of April 23rd

She was born Alice Suzette Warner. Professionally, she was A. Suzette Warner, but, to her friends, she was just Suzy. Everyone knew her from her years at Three Rivers Community Schools and, when she finally retired, she was known to be the go-to-person when you needed historical information about the high school or anything to do with the city of …

Out and About – Week of April 16th

There is no doubt in my mind that we are living in Michigan. A month ago we experienced temperatures in the eighties. Last week we had below-freezing temps. I can only hope that the frost has not hurt the buds on the fruit trees. Mother Nature can be a major speed bump at times. I’m sure that most of you …

Out and About – Week of April 9th

As a patron, it’s always nice to be reminded that your business is appreciated by the local merchants here in Three Rivers. Leslie Ann and Jerry Robbins seem to agree with me, because this Saturday, April 14, they are having a “Customer Appreciation Day” at L.A.’s Coffee Cafe, 145 West Michigan Avenue, Three Rivers. Besides offering a tempting menu, a …

Out and About – Week of April 2nd

Time does fly by, when you’re having fun. This month, “Out and About” will be six years old, and I’m still finding things to write about, and having fun doing it. This column is not a “one-person” operation. Oh sure, I write it, but my wife, Barb, makes sure that the punctuation and grammar are correct. I did well in …

Out and About – Week of March 26th

The Three Rivers High School production of GREASE closed this past weekend. The cast, crew, and production staff put in a lot of hours to make this show one to remember. One shouldn’t compare it to PHANTOM, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, or SOUTH PACIFIC. Every show that is put on by the students at Three Rivers High School turns out …
