Meet Us Again...For The First Time!
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.

Northern Michigan Food Drive Underway
The Covid-19 crisis continues to hit Northern Michigan families hard and the need at area food banks is great. So MacDonald Garber Broadcasting stations are coming together once again to help. The week of June 7th is the 2nd annual Feeding Northern Michigan Week on 106KHQ, Lite 96.3, 104.5 BOB FM and 96.7 The Bull. 
 
This year, we are excited to welcome Joel Jacob and The Bottle Crew as our partner. Food insecurity is an issue close to Joel’s heart and he is very generously offering to match all listener donations up to $25,000. This incredible match donation will go directly to feed families in Northern Michigan. 
 
Each radio station will be focusing on hunger for the entire week and will encourage listeners to join them in donating too. Donations will be made on each station’s website and will go to restock the food pantries at The Manna Food Project, Father Fred Foundation and Feeding America West Michigan. Many local businesses are also joining the fight against hunger and are partnering with their favorite radio station to drive donations. This is a total community effort. 
 
Click HERE to donate. For more information, Diane Shannon Hansell is available at 231-347-8713 or at Diane@lite96.com

Pet of the Week- Miranda and Jacqueline!
Meet Miranda! Miranda came to us as a stray with her sister Jacqueline. Miranda is about 10 1/2 years old, but still has lots of life left in her! Her and Jacqueline are very bonded and cry when they are not with each other. We are hoping to keep these two together. They are both sweet little girls that deserve a loving home where they can be loved up on. They get along with other dogs, don't seem to mind cats and love people!
Meet Jacqueline! Jacqueline came to us as a stray with her sister Miranda. Jacqueline is about 11 1/2 years old and has some health issues. As she came to us as stray, we are not sure what has happened in her life to cause these issues, but it could just be old age. She does have some muscle loss/arthritis in her back end that will probably require her to be on an anti-inflammatory for the rest of her life. Her and Miranda are very bonded and cry when they are not with each other. We are hoping to keep these two together. They are both sweet little girls that deserve a loving home where they can be loved up on. They get along with other dogs, don't seem to mind cats and love people! Click HERE for more pictures!!
