Boo-tacular a hit at Solon’s Velzy Park


It was a perfect autumn afternoon. The laughter of children rang on the air as they played games, collected snacks and built their very own scarecrows. Velzy Park, in Solon Township, was the scene of much activity Saturday, October 21, as the Park’s “Bootacular” got underway. The event was created as a Park fundraiser and public service to the community. Originally hosted by Solon Market, the event was adapted by the joint Park and Market committees to help promote the new park and raise needed money toward continued improvements.  

The “Build a Scarecrow” was a new addition and created much excitement among the youngsters as they watched their scarecrows come to life. It was a toss-up as to who had the most fun—the children, their parents or the volunteers. The scarecrow event and boo-tacular was the brainchild of Park chair, Shelly Aardema, who is also a member of the Market Committee.

The committee is seeking funds to build a restroom and playground as Phase One continues. The park currently features a walking trail, gazebo and picnic area, mostly funded though fundraisers and donations from area residents and businesses. If you wish to help, donations can be sent to Solon Township Office, 15185 Algoma Ave., Cedar Springs, MI  49319.  Be sure to designate it towards Velzy Park. Volunteers are also needed to assist with construction and maintenance as well as events and fundraising. Material donations are welcome as well. For more information, contact Mary Lou at 616-696-1718 or Shelly at 616-696-1848.
