Congratulations to our award winners from the East Jordan Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting/Dinner/Awards
On Friday, January 4, 2019 East Jordan Public Schools celebrated the renovation of its’ High School Gymnasium along with other facility upgrades, by hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony before the start of the Girls’ and Boys’ Varsity Basketball games against Elk Rapids. The Board of Education was joined by the Administrative Cabinet, Coaches and the Basketball teams. Board President Ted Sherman and East Jordan Area Chamber of Commerce President Mary Faculak cut the ribbon in front of an excited Red Devil Crowd.
The Board of Education and administration took time to thank the tax payers of East Jordan for their generosity and support of the students and staff at East Jordan Public Schools. “This project has been a great example of how to build for the future and provide a safe, updated and efficient facility for years to come” said Superintendent Matt Stevenson. “Not only did this support enable this physical education/gymnasium facility to be renovated and now provides the most modern of area facilities, their generosity at the polling place allowed for updated technology and classroom renovations for all students, secure building entrances, new energy efficient boilers in each building and new, even safer busses for our students.”
In appreciation of their endless support, hard work and dedication Superintendent Stevenson presented Board of Education members with a memento of this project. In recognition of their effort, each Board of Education member received a section of the original gymnasium floor fashioned into a plaque. The plaques were designed by the high school CAD class, cut and engraved by the high school woodworking class supervised by instructor John Cross. “We have great people with a clear vision leading this district. It has been an exciting project to work on with the Board of Education and I am excited about our future.” Stevenson added.

East Jordan Readies for Winter Events
As I am writing this article it is in the high 80’s, humid and we are close to drought conditions. Yet, winter festivals and snowmobile trails are on the minds of many in our area. We all know how time flies and before too long, winter will be upon us. The Sno-Blast Winter Festival committee has announced February 23-24 as the dates for the 38th Annual festival in East Jordan. The East Jordan Sno-Mobilers Clubhouse and Grounds will be the location for many of the festival’s events. The committee members are looking to add some new events to the schedule along with bringing back many festival favorite events. If you are interested in helping with the festival, please contact the East Jordan Area Chamber of Commerce for meeting times and location. One new event for 2019 will be the “TNT’s Ride Like a Girl To Save the Girls Bikini Radar Run”. The radar run will be held on Saturday, February 23, on the EJ Sno-Mobiler’s Club Grounds. All money raised will be given to the East Jordan Lioness Club who distributes gas cards to local women and men going through breast cancer treatments. For more information, text local event organizer Courtney Fender at 231-357-0193. There is a group on Facebook ,” TNT’s Ride Like a Girl to Save the Girls Radar Run.”
Members of the East Jordan community are working on improving the snowmobile trails and signage into East Jordan from the Sno-Mobilers Clubhouse. A new non-profit club, South Arm ORV Club has been formed to educate and promote a safe, family fun environment for the sport of ORV’s through club activities and public education of the ORV laws of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. For more information on this new club, contact Alan Kava at email@example.com Meanwhile, as summer winds down, plan your fall color tour trips and festival experiences to the Breezeway communities of East Jordan, Ellsworth and Atwood.
