A message from the Boyne City 4th of July Committee: "The Boyne City 4th of July Committee is blown away by the amount of support we have received from the local community, especially from our fellow businesses and organizations for the 2021 Festival. We are very sensitive to the impact the pandemic made on the local economy and were hesitant to even ask for donations after the difficult year everyone endured. However, we tentatively put out our request for what we need to make the 2021 Festival a reality and the Boyne Area community not only answered, you DELIVERED! We are grateful for everyone who donates, but a special heartfelt thank you goes out to our sponsors, especially those who donated $500 and above. Below is a list of our current top-tier sponsors. We are just as excited as they are to get back to normal and celebrate the "BEST 4TH IN THE NORTH." Without them, it would never be possible!

Team Boyne to meet at library on Friday

Everyone is invited to attend the next meeting of Team Boyne at 9 a.m. Friday as we return to the Boyne Library Community Room for the first time in more than a year. That probably means we will serve coffee! Our entrepreneur guests will be Matt McCann and Augie Engelhart of Detroit Stillworks, who plan to open a distillery tasting room in the former Huff Pharmacy building in downtown Boyne City. They now manufacture and sell distillery equipment from a warehouse near Boyne Boatworks. They’ve noticed that their customers want to see the equipment in operation in a tasting room setting, so this new business will serve dual purposes. It will be a tasting room and a demonstration area for potential distillery equipment customers. They are in the process of obtaining a liquor license and they will appear before the City Commission at 7 p.m. next Tuesday. We may also have guests from a couple of new retailers attending as well.
Meet Us Again...For The First Time at Farley Promo

Why the new name and a new look? Promotion is what we do, in all sizes and shapes, and we all know that capturing the attention of clients can be a challenge. Direct and to the point is the way to go, and it is time. On the lighter side, The Farley Calendar and Promo Products Company is truly a mouthful to say.
 
What has changed, you may ask? Absolutely NOTHING! Same Owners, Same Management, Same Great Customer Service! Promotional calendars have been, and always will be, the foundation of our success. They will continue to be the backbone of our company and the glue that holds together many successful partnerships. As we began to expand our promotional offerings, it became apparent that being more to the point with our company name, and how it shaped our image moving forward, was crucial. The speed at which social media and brand marketing continues to evolve and grow, put even more importance on keeping pace with the times...even better, moving ahead of it.

A note from the Boyne Thunder Committee

Dear Friends in Downtown Boyne City,

The Boyne Thunder Event Committee and our partner charities, Camp Quality and Challenge Mountain, are busy planning this year’s event that takes place July 9th and 10th. We look forward to greeting a full slate of boating participants and bringing the Thunder back to the shores of Lake Charlevoix. 

We are keenly aware that we have July 4th and Boyne Thunder occurring in the same week which typically means no down-time for you, our local merchants. We want you to know that we appreciate all that you do to help us put on this terrific event that, we hope, not only benefits our partner charities but you as well. 

We also know this year has tested us in ways we couldn’t previously imagine. With the loosening of restrictions, and the fact that we can gather outdoors, this most likely means that we will have a full-house for the Friday night street show (6pm until 9:30pm) and on the shores Saturday morning, with the parade laps beginning around 10:15am. 
If you would like additional information for Boyne Thunder 2021, please visit our website: www.boynethunder.com

On behalf of the committee, THANK YOU for your continuing support and always showing the best of Boyne City hospitality. We are Boyne Tough and Boyne Proud!

Ingrid Day
Event Coordinator 
Boyne Forest Bike Trail Expanding
            
Celebrating a collaboration between Evangeline Township, City of Boyne City, Charlevoix County and Top of Michigan Mountain Bike Association with a joint Charlevoix County Recreation Grant to construct a driveway and parking lot on City-owned property in Evangeline Township. TOMMBA has raised funds for a professionally built trail to connect the property to the current Boyne Forest Trail System, which will be completed in July. Donations for trailbuilding may be directed to: https://www.tomba.org/Donate
 
The “green loop” is being constructed now. The other loops will be constructed in the future.
Grants for Arts, Health, and Community Awarded
 
The Community Foundation, through its Community Priorities grant cycle, is responding to requests from nonprofit partners in the areas of art, history, culture, health, and broad community needs. Thanks to donors who look to the Community Foundation to make a difference close to home, grants have been awarded to nonprofits who will work on bringing art and music to our communities, expanding safe places for children, maintaining healthy environments for people of all ages, bringing more affordable housing options to our communities, and much more. 
 
Organizations like the Great Lakes Center for the Arts, Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra, and Charlevoix Circle of Arts work hard every year to bring a variety of art, music, performances, and education to our communities. These organizations will all receive funding to bring art and cultural experiences to Charlevoix County, including an upcoming orchestra concert that will compare music by the Beatles to the more traditional “The Four Seasons” by Astor Piazolla. Additionally, the Beaver Island Historical Society will use grant funding to improve art displays during the Island’s popular Museum Week, while the Charlevoix Historical Society will work on cataloguing, digitizing, and archiving a large collection of historic documents and photos.
 
Healthy communities require quality care for people of all ages and abilities. The McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation will use grant funds to help replace fetal heart monitors in their birthing center. The Bergmann Center will purchase a new handicap accessible lift van to help transport clients to and from center activities and programs. Hospice of Michigan will supply hospice patients with technology and a special app, called WEconnect, that will provide 24/7 access to a virtual team of nurses and social workers to help people through their most difficult time.
 
Child and Family Services of Northwestern Michigan will use their grant to recruit more foster families in Charlevoix County. When children are placed in foster care, the goal is to disrupt their lives as little as possible. To keep children in their school and community, more foster families are needed. Similarly, the Safe Families for Children program, operated by Bethany Christian Services, also works with helping families to weather the storms of life and will be recruiting host families in Charlevoix County so that children who need temporary safe families won’t have to be displaced from what is most familiar to them. 
 
Two organizations are working on addressing the need for housing in Charlevoix County. Housing North will use grant funds awarded to collaborate with partners and design specific accessory dwelling unit (ADU) plans. They will also assist homeowners with the process for adding an ADU to their property. In addition to working on building a home in East Jordan this year, Northwest Michigan Habitat for Humanity will use grant funding awarded to help generally support their mission and core work to bring more affordable housing to Charlevoix County.
 
In total, nearly $150,000 in grants have been awarded through the 2021 Community Priorities grant cycle. Visit c3f.org for a complete list of grants awarded.
 
The next grant cycle is called Geographic Enrichment. Applications will be available after August 1, 2021. This cycle will focus on requests from eligible nonprofit partners that serve the specific communities of Beaver Island, Boyne City, Charlevoix, and East Jordan. In 2021, requests for general support are being accepted in all grant cycles. Applications are due by Friday, October 1, 2021. The Community Foundation welcomes inquiries about applying for grants anytime at acousens@c3f.org.
 
A charitable organization dedicated to improving and enriching life in the area, the Charlevoix County Community Foundation accepts gifts from individuals, families, businesses and civic groups and manages them as permanent endowments. While a portion of the funds are utilized to support grantmaking, the principal of the endowment continues to grow, providing ongoing charitable capital to benefit Charlevoix County’s residents—now and in the future.
