Old Business

A date for this fall’s Selfridge Air Museum plane washing needs to be planned. The director will advise the commission of an appropriate date.

Miss Chesterfield Pageant produced a queen-Chelsea Niemi and a court – Devin Broaddus. Representation was provided at baseball opening day, Relay for Life and Township appreciation awards. The float and the ladies were pulled by Doug in the Algonac and Bay-Rama parade where they secured a second place award! Future visits by the Queen and her court are planned for the Gratiot cruise, Romeo Peach festival and Richmond Good Old Days where the organizers are looking for a volunteer to drive the route.

Appreciation Awards. Rich has agreed to approach the township board to offer the services of the department and our commission to help run this activity as an ongoing project.
