Publisher’s Message: An Incredible 2022 Chelsea Community Fair

My hummingbird and hollyhock cross-stitch piece at the Chelsea Community Fair.

The start of school, football and cooler evenings have arrived but I’d be remiss if I didn’t note (with a huge smile), what an awesome Chelsea Community Fair it was this year.

Kudos to the all-volunteer fair board members and all the superintendents. You guys rocked it and helped Chelsea Update provide readers with more than 50 stories and photo galleries during the week.

In addition to all the stories and photos I wrote and took, I can’t thank Lisa Carolin, Alan Ashley, Crystal Hayduk and Burrill Strong enough for their contributions to these reporting efforts.

As an aside, I’m proud to report that my hummingbird cross stitch piece caught the eyes of the judges, and was awarded both a champion and a grand champion ribbon. For anyone who might like to learn to cross-stitch, (it’s easy, I promise), I will be teaching a class this fall or winter in the Service Center at the fairgrounds on a date to be determined. Please send me an email at [email protected] if you might be interested. It’s not too early to begin your projects for the Green Barn for the 2023 Chelsea Community Fair.

I’d like to thank the following people (below) who supported Chelsea Update in August by making non tax-deductible donations. It’s easy to do, should you choose to contribute to my efforts and the ongoing operations of Chelsea Update.

There’s a donation button on the home page of Chelsea Update or you can send a check in any amount made out to Chelsea Update, and mail it to 18829 Bush Road, Chelsea, MI 48118. Reader support is so, so appreciated and assists with the daily  operations of your Chelsea-centric news site.
