Boyne City Main Street is pleased to welcome and host the Back to the Bricks Promotional Tour car event on Sunday, June 6th from 1-4 p.m. in downtown Boyne City. Back to the Bricks brings together classic cars and car enthusiasts for an afternoon car show for the entire community to enjoy.

In addition to the car show, the following bands are scheduled to play downtown during the event:
Full Circle – Located at corner of Water & East Streets
Northern Nites – Located at Harbor House Publishers
Dr. Goodhart – Located at corner of Water & Park Streets

2021 Stroll The Streets Sponsorships Available

We are really looking forward to the return of events and gathering with our community again in a safe manner! As we begin what can only be an outstanding 2021, it is time to start planning the 18th year of Stroll the Streets. The first Stroll the Streets will be June 11 and will run every Friday evening through September 3, 2021.

Stroll the Streets is one of Boyne City Main Street’s signature events for our community – enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors. Stroll the Streets is the perfect opportunity to display the friendly and welcoming community that is Boyne City. The positive image this event creates is invaluable to us all and impossible to put a price tag on.

Thousands of people visit downtown Boyne City during the thirteen Friday evenings throughout the season to dine at our many restaurants, shop in our stores, enjoy ice cream, dream about a second home – and come back the next day, next week, or next year to do it again.

While it is difficult to understand the direct impact to each of us, just doing simple math tells a great story. What if 1000 people spent an average of $20 every Friday night for thirteen weeks and just 5% was at your business? That is $13,000 in sales.

In 2019, more than 75 bands were hired throughout the season with an investment of $16,000 to entertain the crowds.

That success is because of you! Your contribution makes Stroll the Streets possible. We thank you for your past support, and we hope we can count on you to help again this summer. With your investment in Stroll the Streets you are supporting a great event, and we will recognize your support to the thousands of people visiting our businesses and strolling our streets. Please review the attached information to see how you can support Stroll the Streets.

CLICK HERE for 2021 Sponsorship Form

For planning purposes, we are asking you to let us know your level of support by May 3, 2021 by returning the enclosed sponsorship form. Payment is not due until July 1, 2021.

Thank You. Boyne City Main Street 231-582-9009

Char-Em ISD recognized with
Excellence in Practice award for ‘Career Tech to Careers’ signing events

Nearly two years ago, the Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District began a program recognizing the achievements of students who took career tech courses in high school and used those skills to enter the workforce after graduation. These “Career Tech to Careers” signing events have since taken off, and numerous events have been held celebrating these young adults and their successful transition into careers.
Not only is the program gaining local recognition, but statewide accolades as well. The Michigan Department of Education’s Office of Career and Technical Education recently awarded Career Tech to Careers with a 2021 Excellence in Practice Awards in the Career and College Readiness Initiative category.
Each year the state Office of Career and Technical Education recognizes excellence in career and technical education programming in Michigan’s schools and ISDs.
“Your programs exemplify the highest standards in preparing Michigan’s students for postsecondary education and careers,” said Brian L. Pyles, Director, Office of Career and Technical Education for MDE. “You should be very proud of this significant achievement. I commend you for your valuable contribution and your vision, expertise and teamwork in creating and sustaining such an exemplary practice in career education.”
Jim Rummer, Director of Career and Technical Education for Char-Em ISD, said the signing events have been an exciting program to see grow. They are modeled after athletic-type signing events, where high school athletes are often pictured signing letters of intent to play sports at a college or university. At the Career Tech to Careers signing events, bright backdrops accompany the newly hired worker who is pictured with company management, high school staff and often their parents – all celebrating the young adult’s success in entering the workforce in a meaningful employment opportunity. 
“This initiative in particular has been so rewarding for everyone involved, and especially the young adult and their families. It’s important to recognize the successes of all our students, from those who go on to pursue higher education and those who commit to the workforce and often fill roles necessary for the functioning of our community, like the lineworker program,” Rummer noted.
Char-Em ISD and Boyne City Public Schools were also recognized with an Excellence in Practice Award, Career and Technical Education Outstanding Program, for the Energy Fundamentals: Lineworker Emphasis program housed at Boyne City High School (see media release at
Jeff Crouse, Char-Em ISD superintendent, expressed his congratulations to the hard work of the CTE staff in continuing to pursue programming and initiatives that directly benefit students.
“We continue to grow our opportunities for kids, and at the end of the day that is what these awards recognize – Char-Em’s commitment to our students and their futures,” Crouse said.
Char-Em ISD and its partner districts offer 18 different Career and Technical Education courses across all 11 public school districts in the ISD. Students from any high school can attend any career tech program at any district.

Char-Em ISD, Boyne City Public Schools recognized for ‘Outstanding’ lineworker program

The Michigan Department of Education recently recognized Char-Em ISD and Boyne City Public Schools with an award of excellence for the popular lineworker program housed at Boyne City High School.
The Michigan Office of Career and Technical Education announced on April 6, 2021, that the ISD and Boyne City Public Schools are a recipient of the Career and Technical Education Outstanding Program award for the Energy Fundamentals: Lineworker Emphasis program at BCHS.
Each year the state Office of Career and Technical Education recognizes excellence in career and technical education programming in Michigan’s schools and ISDs. In recognition of these achievements, a special awards ceremony will be held virtually on Wednesday, April 21.
“Our partner schools like Boyne City and our Career Tech staff work tirelessly to develop initiatives that benefit students and help them along a pathway to career and college success,” said Jim Rummer, Director of Career and Technical Education for Char-Em ISD.
Rummer noted that the lineworker program has continued to receive considerable recognition from around the state for its unique approach to training the next generation of lineworkers. Students learn from lineworkers from Great Lakes Energy, and they train on the actual GLE training grounds near the high school. That includes climbing poles and troubleshooting mock emergencies year round, in all types of conditions. Classroom work takes place at BCHS.
“The lineworker program is indeed outstanding in every way, from the instructors to the students who benefit most from the class,” said Pat Little, Superintendent of Boyne City Public Schools. “BCPS would also like to recognize our strategic community partner, Great Lakes Energy, who continues to directly support the development of the Energy Fundamentals program. Also, a special thanks to the Great Lakes Energy Board of Directors and leadership for their ongoing support.”
The ISD received a second state honor in the Excellence in Career and College Readiness Initiative category, for its Career Tech to Careers program, where students who have entered the workforce after high school graduation are recognized at official signing events.
“Your programs exemplify the highest standards in preparing Michigan’s students for postsecondary education and careers,” said Brian L. Pyles, Director, Office of Career and Technical Education for MDE. “You should be very proud of this significant achievement. I commend you for your valuable contribution and your vision, expertise and teamwork in creating and sustaining such an exemplary practice in career education.”
Along with the lineworker program, Char-Em ISD and its partner districts offer 17 different Career and Technical Education courses across all 11 public school districts in the ISD. Students from any high school can attend any career tech program at any district.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) Class

Provided by Kiersten’s Ride (501c3)
ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. Register Here
About this Event
2-day ASIST training at the Shanty Creek Resort Conference Center located: 5780 Shanty Creek Road, Bellaire, MI.
Date/Time: May 19th and 20th from 8:15-4:30, with BOTH FULL DAYS REQUIRED. **If there times you know you won’t be able to give your full attention (scheduled meetings, appointments, etc) perhaps you’ll need to look for a later course.
ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—ASIST can be learned and used by anyone.
In the course of the two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:
  • Understand the ways personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions
  • Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs
  • Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it
  • Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large
  • Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care
This training is made possible at no charge to you by Bellaire Family Health Center.
All materials and meals will be provided. A full breakfast will be served each day at 8 am; you can opt of breakfast each day if you choose. You will select from three options for Day 1; Lasagna Bolognese is being served for Day 2. IF you have specific dietary requirements, please bring your own meals and snacks.
Dress in layers to allow for comfort!
For COVID protocols:
  • Shanty Creek requires you to wear a mask into the building, unless you have a health condition that prohibits it
  • Your temperature will be taken and you will be asked to fill-out a quick COVID questionnaire each morning
  • The trainers will be wearing masks a/o face shields; participants will be asked to do the same; we will have face shields available–we feel these will make it easier to hear and see facial expression
  • Physical 6 foot spacing will apply throughout the training. We have limited the number of participants for this training to ensure proper spacing.
  • If you are not comfortable with these safety measures, or have a temperature, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, etc, we’ll ask you to reschedule to a later class.
Organizer of Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) Class, Bellaire MI
Kiersten’s Ride is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing help, hope, and healing through suicide prevention programs in Northern Lower Michigan.
