The Crawford County Animal Shelter received a $250 donation from Rieth Riley Construction’s Roscommon office manager Patti Schweitzer and area manager Tim O’Rourke.  The company donated the same amount of maney to the Roscommon shelter.  Crawford County’s animal shelter is currently bursting at the seams with dogs and cats, kittens and puppies in need of loving homes, so the donation will help pay for food and supplies for about a week.
The Lovells Bridge Walk Committee wants to thank everyone who donated and participated in the Lovells Bridge Walk.  We had a great time and a good turnout.  The Gannon Broadcasting System beat us again, but we sure have fun trying.  We’ll get them yet.  Thanks again from the community of Lovells, the fire department and EMS.
Dean Meyering is the new owner and Funeral Director of Sorenson Funeral Home.  David Lashley, an 11-year employee for the funeral home, will continue as assistant to the director.
Marines land a CH-53 helicopter at the Camp Grayling parade field on Thursday, August 26, as part of the NEO exercise, a Non-combatant Evacuation Operation.  This operation involved a simulated rescue of personnel in a “U.S. embassy.”
