The "Main Event" Round One
With coolers in hand, those who had placed orders started arriving promptly at 10 a.m. at the annex of the Zion Lutheran Church on July 5 to receive their live lobsters just flown in from Maine. The Schoolcraft CountyCommunity Foundation, the organizer of the fundraiser, said they were very pleased with the response from the community in Round One of their “Maine Event”.
