Brownstown is a busy place these days. Every couple of weeks, you can find a fun activity to be part of in the township. From Free Movies in the Park sponsored by Abed Orthodontics to the Advantage One Credit Union’s Summer Kickoff, there is something for everyone.
“Our business community here in Brownstown is so generous and willing to help out any way that they can,” said Sue Trussell, assistant director of the Browntown Downtown Development Authority. “It’s a breath of fresh air to see how they are always there to make the community a better place to be.”
The Brownstown DDA also partners with the Woodhaven-Brownstown Rotary for many fundraising events throughout the year. They have worked together on the Holiday Wreath Auction, Wine and Pallet Fundraiser and the Antique Appraisal Fair. These events raise funds for the Rotary’s many local projects including Coats for Kids that give much needed winter coats to students in the Woodhaven Brownstown School District.
“We have a great partnership with Brownstown Township,” said Ed Smith, Woodhaven-Brownstown Rotary Club secretary. “They are always ready to assist us in projects that benefit those in need in our communities.”
The most well-attended event of 2017 so far has been the Chic & Unique Markets held on the grounds of the Brownstown Event Center. This was a beautiful outdoor event featuring more than 80 vendors selling handmade items, antiques and unique crafts along with food trucks and live music. Fun was had by over 1,000 patrons at each market.
“The markets have been amazing days that just keeps growing. Our No. 1 goal is to always stay Downriver and in Brownstown,” said Justin Green of GLP Events, which co-sponsored the market with the DDA. “It’s a lovely venue and a beautiful spot for such a unique market. We have so many wonderful vendors and customers that are excited to watch it keep growing.”
Look forward to many more fun events in Brownstown this year, including Trunk or Treat on Oct. 25 and a huge Holiday extravaganza on Dec. 1. Check out the Brownstown DDA Facebook page for event details.
