Schoolhouse new wooden deck completed during summer

A picture is worth a thousand words and YOU made this happen.  Look what we did on your summer vacation!

President’s message

fallas-ken-headshot Ken Tamke

Your memberships, donations, volunteerism, bequests, and attendance at events like the 25TH Annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour, July 7TH, which was a smashing success, the upcoming Fallasburg Bazaar on Fallasburg Fall Festival of the Arts Weekend, September 14 & 15, and our Christmas Party, December 14th, make this possible.  Thank you for doing your part in preserving Fallasburg Village!

Our historic Schoolhouse concrete patio, like many things do when they get old, began to sag and settle.  Water was collecting and draining towards the building instead of away from it threatening foundation timbers and support infrastructure.

We needed to move forward with the project for fear if we waited, irreparable damage could be done. …

FHS President’s message

fallas ken headshot FHS president Ken Tamke

Our collaboration with Calvin College’s History Department began the project three years ago. Under the mentorship of Lowell Area Historical Museum’s Executive Director, Lisa Plank, Calvin student interns have been digitally cataloging our archived material; pictures, documents, and assorted pieces of memorabilia that tell the story of people and places in Historic Fallasburg Village and Vergennes Township.

Please visit: https://collection.fallasburg.org and see for yourself.

This “spring cleaning” process has led to the rediscovery of many forgotten treasures tucked away in files.  We’re still a work in progress, but will continue over the coming months to add to, and refine the site.

Now begins the arduous task of properly storing and preserving our collection.  What a nice convenience for…

Shanty Creek Resorts

The day after Christmas we headed Up North 150 miles into Antrim County, an outdoors lover’s paradise. We made our base in Mancelona with its proximity to the Shanty Creek mountain system: Summit and Schuss mountains.

We stayed at a chalet in the Lakes of the North community; a sprawling development in the woods complete with an indoor pool inside a clubhouse.

A network of trails weaved through the entire area making it ideal for snowmobiling, Nordic skiing or snowshoeing.

Shanty Creek Resorts near Bellaire were approximately 20 minutes away. Schuss Mountain with 450 feet of vertical drop offered downhill skiing for both kids and adults. The “Bunny Hill” was serviced by a Magic Carpet; moving escalator on the ground. The Cedar Creek Lodge at the foot of the hill offered respite from the brisk wind. A shuttle communted between Schuss and the lodge.
