VERNON EASTER EGG HUNT A HOPPIN' GOOD TIME
The Easter Bunny spent Saturday morning having breakfast at Toney's Pizzeria
& Cafe in downtown Vernon before heading toward Crawford Park, courtesy of
the Vernon Township Fire Department and its brand new Michigan-made tanker
#652, just in time for the start of the highly-anticipated community easter egg
hunt that brought dozens of kids to the park.
Mother Nature served up great weather and, thanks to the generosity of numer-
ous sponsors, the event is being regarded by those that attended as a great
community celebration with good times had by all.
VICTIMS OF SATURDAY PLANE CRASH NEAR CORUNNA WERE HEADED TO BANCROFT
Two men killed not far from Corunna on Saturday afternoon
when the single-engine plane they were traveling in crashed
in a field at M-13 and Cronk Road, were headed to Bancroft.
Richard Kenneth Hayward, 63, from Vassar, was flying his
friend, Mark James Kozan, 49, from Caro, to his helicopter
which was located in Bancroft. The experimental Nanchang
CJ-6 plane made sharp maneuvers following what sounded
like sputtering from the plane's engine and a seemingly slow-
turning prop, according to witnesses. Then, it hit the ground.
