Just a thought..is there some way the bohm theater can live stream and we pay to watch movies like on a friday Saturday and Sunday nights? I keep my grandbabies on the weekends. I'm willing to have movie night where I can log on at the times movies are playing. Especially if new movies are coming out. I dont want to miss them. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm so hoping they re-open soon but that's a good idea for those who wish to stay in.
A Bohm movie night!! I'd have the popcorn holder with the drinks on the side of the popcorn bowl, grab a blanket..I'd make it a big issue and I believe they'd go for it!👍🥳🍭🍬🍿🌭🍕
They have a page maybe we could ask them or friends of the Bohm not sure what equipment and licensing to do that would cost.
What a great idea!! However, I understand the streaming rights would be so costly that it isn’t financially feasible for the Bohm to do this.
I'm pretty sure you can rent with a small group...and have a real movie at the Bohm
See special places along the Detroit Riverfront where underused spaces were transformed into magical places for recreation and renewal.Art of Detroit by Maggie LaNoue. Robert C. Valade Park opened along the East Riverfront in 2019. It features a huge beach, a music garden, colorful playscapes for climbing, a community barbecue pavilion and Bob’s Barge….Detroit’s only floating bar. The park is also home to The Shed, a beautiful glass building that will feature local food and special events.

What a neat idea!
I did the same thing! Chocolate and beer! Tomorrow, the bakery, then Common Goods, then ...
One of my favorite gifts from my children was a car detail. 🚗 Inside Out Automobile Detailing would be an excellent gift for someone who has “everything”.🎄
We went last night, good chocolate!
Try to get a photo of buying something from the local business and share it to facebook to get even more for our businesses!
The chocolate downtown is worth it! Maybe I'll do that. And detailing. And college chevy.
Making Chocolate is an art. I watched her pick flavors, designs, and tell stories of how chocolate is made. She even had a member of her family paint the cacoa plant on the wall. I love it when Albion includes art in their life and business. ... See MoreSee Less

Eastend Studio & Gallery in Marshall just reached its $50K goal for Patroncity to build its elevator. This allows the organization to use its historic building to host events such as weddings, reunions and meetings. Eastend is the largest non profit gallery in a 3-state region and helps artists from all around, including Albion. We are happy to share this exciting news as it shows that mid-Michigan is on track to use its trails and arts to bring in visitors from all around.It’s official! We’ve reached our goal of 50K during our fundraising campaign. Because we have two days left in the campaign, we are calling a stretch goal of an additional $2,500 which will cover the commission costs Patronicity receives to host their fundraisers.
Thank you to Tanner Simpson, Trailblazers, Jeff & Joanne Fitzmaurice, Livia & Thomas Watson, Frank & Sue Boley, and Pam & Randy Davis for helping us get there.
We are incredibly grateful to our supporters. Thank you all so much for your generosity!

Before the days of MP3's, before the days of CD's, cassettes, and record albums, people had to make their own music on actual musical instruments. It was a way to spend some time with family and friends after dinner, or just for fun. People often bought printed music sheets, and printed music was a hot commodity, many a fortune was earned by creating and selling printed music. Dickerson Music Co. has one of the premier collections of printed music of any retail music store. Can you think of a favorite song from your family growing up? There's a good chance that Dickerson Music has it in print, and this would be a great gift for a family member. Tell them the story of how music was shared, before MP3's and records. Shop Local Business.Now is the time to get your music for the holidays. Don’t forget if you bring in an unwrapped toy for toys for tots you get 10% off your purchase. #toysfortots #shoplocal ...

Hi! My name is Lauren Bergeron. I am a third year history student and a student worker at the Albion College Archives and Special Collections. Hi! My name is Akaiia Ridley. I am also a third year history student and I am assisting Lauren in the Albion College Archives and Special Collections.
Together we are working to create an exhibit that will highlight the Black history of Albion College. Black students are a big part of the Albion College community and we have noticed that there is not a lot of coverage of the experiences that Black students have had on this campus. We want to hear from you. The purpose of this exhibit is to bring to light the experience of being a Black student on Albion College’s campus and/or a member of the Albion community. This exhibit will act as an opportunity for Black alumni and current students to share their experiences in forms that can be preserved in the archive for years to come, so that future generations can see what came before them.
If you would like to participate in any way, such as providing oral histories, or photos that you are willing to share, please contact Lauren Bergeron at LDB12@albion.edu or Akaiia Ridley at ADR12@albion.edu. ... See MoreSee Less

Arts and Eats Tour has been Canceled for 2020
After much discussion with Arts and Eats staff and participants both past and present, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Arts and Eats 2020. We make this announcement with heavy hearts but with the firm belief that it is the best choice available to us.
The 2020 tour was to be our 10th anniversary event. Though we are disappointed to instead be facing a year without the tour, we remain grateful for the artists, artisans, farmers, and restaurateurs who make up the tour, the sponsors who make the tour possible, and the visitors who come out each year to celebrate Southwest Michigan. We thank you for your patience as we figure out our next steps, and we look forward to seeing you for Arts and Eats again in 2021.
The 2020 Arts and Eats Team
Arts and Eats is a free self-driving tour of rural regions in Allegan, Barry, Calhoun, Kalamazoo, and Van Buren counties and the surrounding rural region. Partner organizations collaborate to bring you quality experiences in art, local food, and agriculture in those little out-of-the-way places that beg to be discovered.
