Community Bike Ride Calendar Set for 2019 Summer Season
The city of Algonac and Clay Township are setting the 4th Wednesday of the month as the community bike rides. Each month will have a different theme and starting/ending locations. They start May 29th, then its June 26th, July 24th, August 28th, Sept. 19th and Oct 30th. The inaugural ride last summer attracted 75 people! This promises to be a popular group activity.
Street Art Program
The City of Algonac is looking for interested artists (no residency requirements) to create clever creations from common objects around the city. These “art interruptions” offer passers-by a brief pause, prompting a moment of appreciation, humor, reflection or surprise. The goal of this program is to embrace the artistic talents of local individuals while displaying creative artwork throughout the community. Artists are encouraged to incorporate the character of the surrounding environment and neighborhood into their artwork. There is no cost to apply for the program. Artists are responsible for providing their own materials.
To participate, complete the application/design proposal and waiver and submit forms to email@example.com. IF you're a student, fill out this Student application. The city will contact you once your application has been approved.
Memorial Chair Program
In the summer of 2018, the City retired the Memorial Bench program because all the available spots for memorial plaques were full. In an effort to bring some color and new interest to the Riverfront Park boardwalk, the Adirondack Memorial Chair Program was initiated. Anyone interested in making a donation for a chair with a plaque can complete the application and submit the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
