The General Guide showcases cultural places and events along the I-94 corridor between Battle Creek and Jackson, including Albion, Marshall, and Homer.
The primary focus of the Guide is to build bridges between Albion and Marshall by sharing information that welcomes people into each community.
Since gasoline prices are a bit higher this year than they were a year ago, many families are opting out of larger vacations and going on day-trips along the I-94 corridor for fun and entertainment. The General Guide can help to figure out what places to go to on what day. The Guide is designed to be posted on a refrigerator showing the three months calendars and art of “Summer in the City” as the banner design.
Many people in Michigan know about the Mackinac Labor Day Bridge Walk, but the Albion Labor Day River Trail Walk over the Bridge is also gaining in popularity. This event starts in Victory Park at 10 a.m. on Labor Day and will be promoted more as the big day draws near. The walk is open for people with all levels of mobility.
Look inside your Morning Star or Ad-Visor & Chronicle this weekend if you live in the city of Albion or Marshall for your very own copy of the General Guide.
This issue has information about holiday traditions of the season including Giving Tuesday. We will post more information here soon including answers to the puzzle inside. Check out the Google Calendars – Albion and Calhoun County – that go with the printed calendars and have links to official events.
