Here are a couple of events coming up on the Old Mission Peninsula…

Open House for Fire Station 3

Now that Covid restrictions have loosened up a bit, the Peninsula Township Fire Department is hosting an open house for the new station, and everyone is welcome to attend.

The open house will be held on Sunday, August 15, from 12 noon to 3 p.m. The event will include food, fire trucks, activities for the kids and, of course, the opportunity to view the brand new station.

Fire Station 3 is located at 19270 Center Road, on the east side of the road between Swaney Road and Tompkins Road. The Fire Department is requesting that those who have not been vaccinated, please wear a mask while touring the station.

Farewell Gathering for Methodist Pastor

A farewell gathering will be held for Pastor Zelphia Mobley on August 15, 12 noon to 2 p.m., at Pavilion 1 at Bowers Harbor Park (this is the main pavilion closest to Bowers Harbor Road).

The event, which will include refreshments, is hosted by Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church, where Pastor Mobley, known as “Pastor Z”, has served since July 1, 2019. She will be retiring and moving back downstate where her family lives.
