I am crossing my fingers for him to win this contest. I hope all of you are crossing fingers, legs, toes, eyes.

The Photographer, Part Un

Do you remember when I told you that we had a photographer from the Washington DC area staying with us who was participating in a photo contest for the Pure Michigan campaign? Well, lem’me tell ya, he sent some pictures last night that are awesome. He gave me permission to use them here on the blog. His name is Drew Smith of  Drew Smith Photography

There are so many gorgeous pictures. Everyone of them worth framing.
How about some of Mike and Marc fishing off the Frankfort pier?

Josh Carter, the crew coordinator for the Wolverine Fireworks Co., has just informed me that big things are planned for the 4th of July celebrations.  Among them, a raffle to find a winner.  The prize –

Grand Marshall of the Fireworks

The winner gets to start the show and to fire miscellaneous shells during the show.  The tickets will be on sale sometime next week for the usual tarrif – 1 for $1. or 6 for $5.  That should be great fun.  I know that I am going to buy a bundle of tickets.

Josh has pledged the fee that he is usually paid to go back into Frankfort’s fireworks fund, which is solely paid for, by the way,  with donations.  This will allow him to bring a bigger show for us to see.  Donations are already coming in from down state families who enjoy our 4th of July celebrations every year.

Usually Steve Christian from Dinghy’s and  Mike and the boys  will go around the parade route and collect money for the fireworks and there are collection boxes stationed all around Main Street stores.  If you’re here for the 4th, remember to stuff something in those boxes.

I didn’t report on the Solstice fireworks, don’t ask me why.  They were spectacular once again.   Superb.  The only way those fireworks could be better is if they were set to music.
