Muskegon hit seventy degress the warmest since 1903 and Flint was the warmest major city, heating up to 79 degrees.  Expect more warm temps today.

"Adopt a Door" Recieves Donation From Rural Fire Chiefs

The "Adopt a door" campaign received  $3,450 from Mason County Rural Fire chiefs. That money can fit fifteen more boots on the doors of classrooms in Mason County. These "Boots" are designed to secure a class room door in case of emergency and the movement is backed by the Mason County Sheriffs Office.

The donation brings the total to 141 boots out of a needed county total of 567.

Mason County Central’s fall festival is from 4:30 to 6 p.m. today in the MCC High School cafeteria.  

The festival is also an opportunity to learn more about and donate to the Adopt A Door program to fund a Boot for every classroom.

Community members are invited to donate cash, check, loose change or funds of any dollar amount. Credit cards can be used as well. The cost to pay for a full Boot is $230.
