Kalk 150A group of community members are helping the community celebrate this summer.

They created t-shirts for purchase to commemorate the celebration, and are planning to display memorabilia of the county during the Kalkaska County Fair.

The group is also planning an ice cream social for later in the summer, and collaborating with the Kalkaska County Library on a commemorative video of the county’s history.

“Especially right now to come out and be able to have some fellowship together again as a community after all that’s happened the last year,” said Pat Whiteford, Kalkaska County Sheriff. “I think it’s extremely important that we have these events to bring the community together.”

The group also created a float that will be unveiled at the National Trout Festival parade.
