Here is a collection of OMP news and photos this week…
New Farm Stop Alert. My nephew Nick Johnson (my nephew Ward) opened a new farm on Central Road. If you are heading north at the center, there is a beautiful red and white parking lot on the left, just before you reach the Smokey Hollow intersection. Everything grows right on their farm, and he now sells small bags for $ 4 and $ 5, 1/2 bush bags for $ 15, and sweet corn for .25 cents. They are selling, so I recommend they arrive early.

Cigarette boats in the bay. Have you seen or heard of smoking boats in the seas today? I asked our readers on the newspaper’s Facebook page, and there is someone who knows what the survey is about, and since the summer of ‘2020, a story about “Exotic Run” has been organized by Rudy Torres, a specialty in the travel city of Rudy Torres. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. If you know, tell us in the comments below.
The center breaks the road. In this week’s OMP Road Erosion News, the center road is in the spotlight again (last week, it was the center road / Hodgkin and Bluef Road). This week, a massive area of 9500 Avenue (between Montagag Road and Gray Road) is collapsing. I talked to a resident there, he sent a few photos from the beach and he noticed that their feet were hanging on the stairs and the sidewalk.
“The stairs have been destroyed. We have repeatedly called the Road Commission to investigate the erosion, but it is our responsibility and expense to rebuild it,” she said. “One week before this, the Road Commission told me that erosion was not a concern. There are traffic cones in this article: But it is not clear when this will be resolved.
Kovi Memorial Tree. On Saturday, August 28, at 10:00 a.m., a special covis commemorative tree will be erected at the Pennsylvania Community Library, in honor of those who lost their lives to the virus at the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society. If you would like to enter the name of the person you love, or perhaps a short name – just fill out the form here. The historical community puts that information on a small, biodegradable card to bury it with the tree – figuratively part of the tree’s life. A stone with a simple memorial board separates it from the tree.
Harvest story. This coming weekend, August 29, the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society is hosting a “Harvest History” event. There are nine venues for the event, each with different events. Click here for more information.
Methodist pastor retires. Pastor Zelpia Mobley (also known as “Pastor Zi”) is retired and is going downstairs to where his family lives. On Sunday, August 15, a small farewell meeting was held at Bower Harbor Park. She has been serving the United Mission Methodist Church on the former Mission Peninsula since July 1, 2019.
Cherries rescued. OMP farmers are always doing good, and this week, they are donating cherries for a great cause. Northwest Michigan Food Safety posted on its Instagram page yesterday: Here in the world of cherry capital we find beautiful, delicious cherries and many recipes to use them. This is a cherry cream cheese recipe from one of our favorites, Dr. Amy Lezozoni, a professor of horticulture in Michigan. University. ”
And here is the “Interesting Fact – Dr. Leszoni introduced ballet cherries to the United States in the 1980s after discovering the best cherry varieties that grow later and occasionally cool northern Michigan.
Since 2008, the GoodWill Northwest Michigan Food Saving Program has been collecting up-to-date, fresh, healthy food for 70+ food warehouses and Northwest Food Coalition community catering stations on the same day, at no cost to warehouses.
