Last year Durand added a second car show that was such a hit they’re bringing it back this year! In addition to their traditional “End of Summer Cruisin’” show (always held Labor Day Saturday), they’re inviting classic car owners to cruise downtown and enjoy an evening of live rock and roll performed by Tommy Vale and The Torpedos. The July 19th car show is free and runs from 5-9pm at East Main and Hagel Streets, right next to that night’s “Wednesday Night Live” free outdoor concert. The music series is sponsored by the Downtown Durand Development Authority and many generous Durand businesses and organizations. For more information call The Greater Durand Area Chamber of Commerce at 989-288-3715 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Wednesday Night Live concert series returns July 12th at 7pm, and this year's series features five nights of tribute bands. The SHOUT! Beatles Tribute opens the series. Tommy Vale & The Torpedos delivers 50 Shades of Saxaphone on July 19th. Rock Harley, the Johnny Cash Tribute, comes to Durand on July 26th. August arrives with Teddy Petty and the Refugees, the Tom Petty Tribute, on the 2nd. The final night is a Barry Manilow Tribute courtesy of Frank Sternett.
All events begin at 7pm and feature Le Dias Clowns, face painting and refreshments. Admission is free.

The Vernon Township Hall was packed on Monday night with residents frustrated by a lack of clarity on a rumored industrial project. While emotions were high, and township officials refrained from sharing some information about the project citing confidentiality, on more than one occasion residents at the meeting praised officials for being much more transparent than city officials at the recent Durand City Council meeting. Two council members were in the audience but did not speak publicly during the meeting.
