TODAY – Gun Lake Casino’s Expansion – Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting Details

Today is the grand opening of the much anticipated Gun Lake Casino’s Harvest Buffet. Below are details from their FB page. Please feel free to attend if you are available as this is a public event. I had the opportunity to try the amazing buffet last week. I guarantee you will not leave hungry. One of the employees also provided some good advice on taking a “tour” of the entire buffet before you begin so you know what you really want to try first and then plan your second plate (or dessert plate). We also had an opportunity to meet their new Chef who is incredible. Pretty much anything that can be made from scratch IS – he even makes the salad dressings! And – they are proudly using as many local products and resources as possible. In addition, today is not only the opening of the Harvest Buffet, but also the new Stage 131, and of course the new expanded gaming floor! AND beginning TODAY, Gun Lake Casino is also family-friendly (including Harvest Buffet, Sandhill Café, the Food Court (Johnny Rockets and Villa Pizza), and Appliques Gift Shop. Details: Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting Celebration – Today from 11 AM – 3 PM The 300-seat buffet will feature delicious dishes from multiple stations including a Chef’s Table, American favorites, Asian specialties, Mexican classics, traditional Italian, and more.

Wayland Memorial Day Events Announced

Wayland Memorial Day Events Announced  All are invited to Wayland’s annual Memorial Day events scheduled for Monday, May 29th.  Veterans are needed for cemetery honors and parade participation. The bus for the cemetery honors will depart at 7:45 am from the Wayland VFW.  The cemetery schedule is: 8:30am Hooker, 9:00am Native American, 9:25am Germond, 9:45am St. Cyril’s, 10:00am Hill, 10:20am Elmwood.   Beginning at 11:00am is the Annual Memorial Day Parade beginning at the MI State Police Post and concluding at the Wayland VFW Post 7581.  Out of respect for the Veterans, Wayland VFW Post Commander Floyd Hitchcock is requesting that any trucks, big rigs, etc please refrain from using sirens and horns.  City resident and business owner Mike Salisbury stated, “I thought it was a huge improvement when the sirens and horns stopped blaring.” Always remembering those who served is a vital aspect of the Wayland Memorial Day Parade, with the mood more somber and reflective.  While marching bands do play patriotic music, there are no sirens blaring and horns honking (which are common in celebratory parades—including Wayland’s annual Christmas Parade). All parade participants are asked to please refrain from using sirens and horns.   For parade details and City Police parade rules, please view www.waylandchamber.org/eventscommunity. At the parade conclusion, the public is invited to the VFW to enjoy the pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, and Mayor Bala’s Famous Cole Slaw.  The cost is $6.00 per person (cash or checks only).  If you are able to participate for the cemetery honors, would like to volunteer at the luncheon, or have any questions, please contact the Wayland VFW Post #7581 at...
