After the parade, Lennon Lions Park is the place to be, where you'll find numerous family activities including face painting, kids games, bouncy balls, a pie eating contest, "Touch a Truck" with emergency vehicles from area agencies and a fire safety presentation by the Venice Township Fire Department, and of course, the antique tractor pull and the kiddie tractor pull.
From noon to 5pm learn about Lions Kid Sight and get a child ID, thanks to North Newburg Road Masonic Lodge, for use in case of emergencies.
Saturday night, come dressed in your favorite era and enjoy music and dance from 9 to midnight. Get a prize if you're the best dressed!
Sunday is loaded with events and activities too, starting with the volunteer firemen pancake breakfast, a barbecue chicken dinner beginning at noon and a car show. Trophies will be awarded at 4pm. And, perhaps, the highlight of the weekend: the annual Cub Cadet giveaway sponsoed by Alderman's Inc., of Lennon. Get a ticket for just $10! At 5pm someone will win a Cub Cadet zero turn lawn mower.

PICKLES SPILL ONTO M-21 JARRING TRAFFIC
Pallet of Pickles Shifts As Truck Turns Corner, Pickles Crash Onto Roadway

It was quite a pickle for drivers on M-21 on Wednesday afternoon. Corunna Police Chief Nick Chiros told Corunna Now that a pickup truck carrying a pallet of large pickle jars lost part of its load as it turned from northbound Shiawassee Street onto M-21. All westbound lanes of M-21 were affected.
Facebook emoji tears were shed. Some of our friends expressed concerns over a potential pickle shortage. Others navigated their emotions with gifs.
