The Montcalm County Neighborhood Watch program would like to invite you to join them at the Pierson Outdoor Market located to the west of the Sticks-N-Stones Store in Pierson Township on Saturday, September 24th, from 10 to 3. Our goal is to bring community members together to socialize and discover the array of services the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Department has to offer.
This event is an occasion for the Sheriff’s Department to showcase some of the equipment and technology they regularly employ. One of the displays will be the Mobile Command Center, which provides an opportunity to establish a remote base of operations for any situation that may incur in which they may need ready access to information, a meeting place, or technological equipment. Also in attendance will be the Canine Unit with Deputy Mike Williams and his companion, Rex, who is looking forward to demonstrating his skills. The Mounted Division will be present with their friendly horses that enjoy being petted and spoken to, both of which should be a favorite for families and children. The Sheriff’s Department Dive Team will demonstrate their equipment and explain the necessary training and skills involved with this much needed service.
A local radio station will be broadcasting live, there will be live music, and tractor pulls sponsored by the Flat River Antique Tractor Club will begin at 1:00 p.m. Sixty vendors are expected to display their wares that day at the Pierson Outdoor Market ranging from collectibles to crafts to produce.
Gifts and handouts donated by the Neighborhood Watch program and area businesses will be offered, so make sure you come and collect some of the fun give-a-ways.
Furthermore, participants are encouraged to obtain information regarding the Neighborhood Watch program and sign up for email alerts and newsletters. Updated information from Undersheriff Mark Bellinger regarding the murder investigation of Mr. and Mrs. Greene will also be available.
There is entertainment, information, and fun for everyone in the family. If you have any questions or need further information you may contact either Dawn Miles at 616-788-8602 or Stacy Frodl at 636- 8677.
