Members of Durand's Cub Scouts Pack 84's Bear Den joined Durand City Councilman Jeff Brands downtown on Thursday night last week to help prepare the city for Santa's arrival on November 24th. Brands shared some impresive facts about what it takes to ready the city for the holidays. He said 70 trees get decorated with 600 strands of lights -- that's around 60,000 bulbs! Not to mention, 400 feet of garland. Check out this clip of the boys helping string up lights on some of the city's trees. Durand Now was there!
Witnesses say an early Thursday morning crash on Lansing Road in front of Durand Middle School involved multiple vehicles and that one person was transported by ambulance. There are no details surrounding the circumstances of the crash, identities of persons involved or the extent of any injuries available at this time.
The crash impacted travel; a tipster first alerted Durand Now to a traffic stand still in front of the school at 7:30am.
