Douglas Free Summer Socials Ready, Set, Go
Douglas warmly invites all to the second Summer Social on Thursday, July 25th at Beery Field from 5:30 to 9:00 pm. Saugatuck is redemption bound at the Second Annual Battle of the Bridge Kickball Game, won last year in the final inning by the Douglas Dawgs. Kick-off begins at 8:30 pm.
And, it’s another fabulous prize-winning dance contest with the aid of the Michigan-based family trio Schrock Brothers Band. The Schrock Brothers trio is comprised of brothers Andrew and Jasen Schrock, joined by their father, Mark. They write and perform songs in the Americana roots/blues/folk/rock tradition, and sing them with soul and sweeping three-part harmony accompanied by guitars, bass, and mandolin. The Schrock Bros Band features the trio plus Michigan musical legends Drew Howard on pedal steel and guitar, Michael Shimmin on drums, and Grammy award-winning Peter Madcat Ruth on harmonica. “Pure entertainment from start to finish. We didn’t want it to end!” says Annie Capps, On the Tracks Songwriter Showcase.
Huntington Bank, the Douglas Lakeshore Association, and Mill Pond Realty are sponsoring this annual, fun-packed July event. Food and cold drinks will be available for purchase. You won’t want to miss the fun!
This summer, Douglas is proud to feature artistically decorated Adirondack chairs (15 in all) throughout downtown Douglas and at Wade’s Bayou. These colorful works of art provide relaxing seating and fun photo ops for an unforgettable visit to downtown Douglas. The chairs will be auctioned at the summer social on August 22nd with proceeds going toward similar or same projects next year. Century 21 Affiliated Douglas is sponsoring the chairs. You know it’s fantastic if it’s from Century 21 Affiliated Douglas!
