Fowlerville 4th of July Festivities to be postponed until Labor Day

On May 26, (Fowlerville) Village Council Meeting, Village Attorney, David Stoker informed the council that, at this time, all of the scheduled 4th of July activities (parade, fireworks) would likely be in violation of the Stay Home, Stay Safe initiative (Inclusive of all Executive Orders) put in place by Gov. Whitmer. The board and its 4th of July committee (at the advisement of the council) are postponing their 4th of July activities.

“There is not a greater day that defines us as a country, or our freedom, than our beloved 4th of July. Our committee is already working on plans to move forward and hopefully, we can reschedule our events for later this summer. Labor Day Weekend is a possible solution to host our events.”

Reading Trail At Fowlerville Community Park (walking path) now until October 2020
Families visiting the Fowlerville Community Park can walk a new trail that will sharpen children’s minds while adding to healthy exercise and family time.

The Livingston County United Way’s Women United Committee launched their first Reading Trail, at Settler’s Park in Hartland recently and are now offering a Reading Trail in the Fowlerville community.

Visitors will find pages from the children’s book “Buzzy the Bumblebee,” written by local author Denise Brennan-Nelson, installed as framed signs along the paved walking path. Families can follow the walking path around Fowlerville Community Park, read the story, and perform physical activities and challenges as they read each sign. 

Please safely enjoy this fun activity while social distancing as other households participate. Thank you to Livingston County United Way and the Women United Committee for offering the Reading Trail to our local park! Fowlerville families and visitors can enjoy the activity until the beginning of October during regular park hours, from 6 AM to 9 PM daily.
