‘Pure Michigan’ Films at Old Mission General Store

Feel free to share this post...

While some Old Mission Peninsula residents would probably prefer that Pure Michigan stay AWAY from the area (more people! more traffic! more [whatever]!), it’s always kind of fun to see a filming crew descend on the Peninsula with all their gear and equipment and people.

They were at the Old Mission General Store this morning, filming a spot that will air next Spring, according to the guy I talked with on the porch as I grabbed a few photos of my own.

The premise is that a group of four youngsters (20-somethings, I’m guessing) are on a road trip around Michigan, and so the Pure Michigan crew is filming them at various small towns and villages around the state. They’d just finished filming at Haserot Beach down the road and had also filmed at other locations around northern Michigan, including Leelanau County, I believe.

It was spitting rain here and there, so the crew kept having to wipe off their vehicle, put tarps up when the rain let loose, and keep things covered up when possible. The owners, Jim and Marcy, said the Pure Michigan folks had called them and asked to film there.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
