Gwinn, MI – It was all about community at the annual Gwinn Fun Daze, hosted by Gwinn and the ModelTowners. Major Discount and Gordon Mielke were there to bring the fun to you! People gathered together from all around Gwinn and the surrounding areas to celebrate their amazing town, and everyone had a blast!
Concerned citizens for a better school system in Gwinn were on hand helping folks understand the basis of the new millage coming up August 4th. Many folks supported their efforts by purchasing a stretchable rubber bracelet to support the repair of building structures in the Gwinn schools. Roofs, buses, and computers are a few of the items that will be addressed with the money generated by passing the millage on August 4th.
It is estimated it will cost the average home owner in the district about $50-$80 a year on this millage. Committee member Mary Jo and Gwinn A.D. Rob Soyring both spoke with Major Discount on this topic from the Gazebo on the Great Lakes Radio sound system they brought for the bands to play through. Also Negaunee, Ishpeming and Marquette all passed this type of repair-the-buildings style millage.
Hundreds of people stopped out to get in on the fun and there was plenty to be had for everyone, old and young! There was a 50/50 raffle, rubber ducky races for the kids, bingo, prizes, and an entire area for children to safely play in! There was also great food like brats, hot dogs, pizza, burgers, and for desert, Daughters of the Nile cotton candy! There was also live music all day, as well as antique chainsaw viewing and classic cars and tractors to check out!
Great Lakes Radio also celebrated the launch of their new station: 99.9FM Fox Sports Gwinn! We’re proud to bring a live broadcast of ModelTowners sports to Gwinn on 99.9FM and streaming online. The station will have ModelTowner football and basketball this upcoming school year!
We hope you had an awesome time at the Gwinn Fun Daze this year! A special thanks goes out to the city of Gwinn, E&E Furniture, The Gwinn Lions Club, Gwinn Insurance, and Great Lakes Radio!
