Memorial Day Parades in Northville, Novi, and South Lyon, Michigan

by The Jamey Kramer Group

Memorial Day Parades in Northville, Novi, and South Lyon, Michigan

Americans look forward to Memorial Day weekend for many reasons. Usually, it marks one of the first warm, summer-like weekends. Because it’s a federal holiday, it gives us extra time to spend time with our loved ones, families, and friends.

But as admirable as that is, this holiday exists as a remembrance for those brave souls who gave their lives in wars so that you and I can remain free.

On the memorial in Novi, dedicated on May 30, 1952, it reads: “in memory of all veterans who gave their lives that we may live.” Simply said, but very appropriate.

Did you know Memorial Day has been around since 1868? Major General John A. Logan instituted Decoration Day in May. The idea was for people of our nation to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers of the Union Army, after the Civil War, “with choicest flowers of springtime.” Businesses would close and flags would fly at half-mast.

Later, after the first World War, the day was appropriated to honor the fallen from all American wars. In Michigan, Decoration Day was made into a state holiday in 1871 and in 1882, Decoration Day became Memorial Day. In 1971, Memorial Day was made a national holiday and placed on the last Monday in May.

What better way to enter into the spirit of the day than to bring your loved ones and friends to watch or even be in your community’s parade? If you live in Novi, Northville or South Lyon you are fortunate! There are events happening in each community.

Making Maple Sugar Tours in Southeast Michigan – Maybury Farm & More

by The Jamey Kramer Group

One of the most Michigan things you can do is to attend a Maple Syrup or Maple Sugar tour at one of our many parks throughout Southeast Michigan. You may not know how popular and fun it is to learn how to tap Maple trees for their syrup.

There are several ways you can participate in this annual ritual, and even take home some of the sweet stuff for yourself. And, there is still time!

Maybury Farm Making Maple Syrup Tours

Maybury Farm

  • 50165 8 Mile Rd., Northville, MI 48167
  • March 31, 2018
  • 1:00 pm, 1:45 pm, 2:30 pm, and 3:15 pm
  • Cost: $7.00 per person and children 2 and under are free.  

This is a full family event and your kids will love it. If you have ever wondered how maple syrup is made or have read about it but never seen it in action, you can take a tour to find out.

Tours begin with a wagon ride out to Maybury Farm’s Sugar Bush. Upon arrival, a guide will take you to the maple woods to learn about which trees give sap good for syrup, how best to “tap” a tree for sap, and how it is collected so as not to waste it. Participants can even taste the sap straight from the tree!

Another wagon ride takes you to the “sugar shack” for the cooking down demonstration. You will get to see firsthand how the sap is cooked to make maple syrup we know and love. In addition, you will learn all about how it gets graded, and why, and how you can make your very own maple syrup at home!

Your tour concludes with the chance to warm up at the Maybury Farm Welcome Center with hot drinks, snacks, and a blazing wood stove reminiscent of pioneer times. You can buy your own jug of Michigan maple syrup to take home and a book of free recipes that work well with maple syrup - not that you’ll have any problem eating it up!

Kids of all ages will benefit from the outdoors and learn a lot about one of the oldest gathering techniques in America!

This is a very popular event and space is limited. The earlier you arrive, the better, to reserve a spot. Private farm tours are available for groups of 15 or more: call 248-374-0200.

The cost for the Making Maple Syrup Tours is $7.00 per person and children 2 and under are free.

Top Real Estate Articles in 2017

Top Real Estate Articles 2017

As we are all settling into this new year and trying to stay warm, we at The Jamey Kramer Group are taking stock of 2017. We have come to appreciate this custom of reflecting on the past year and looking forward to all that the new year holds.

We’ve been grateful to serve the communities of Novi, Northville, and South Lyon in Oakland County, Michigan. We have so many valued clients and are thankful for your continued support and trust.

The other thing we love about what we do is the opportunity to build up the community through this blog. It only highlights the amazing things the community has to offer. We wouldn’t have all of the unique things to write about if the community we serve wasn’t so vibrant and exciting.

Every year, we look forward to promoting the community’s events and finding out about new ones.

Another standout from 2017 has been the exciting comeback of the real estate market after almost 10 years of slow growth. In fact, it’s been such a comeback that we’ve published many articles about the competition over new homes and the relative shortage of new homes.

Mostly, it’s a privilege to walk alongside singles, couples, and families selling or buying their homes this year. We love that we get to be part of this exciting process, and we continue to be dedicated to doing whatever it takes for you.

For that reason, we are always searching for the newest trends and news so that we can be your source for any real estate or community questions, concerns or news.

We know how hard it is to buy or sell a home - especially this last year. But we’re here to help. We like to share the knowledge we’ve gained from doing over and over again what most people only do a few times in their lifetime. We always want to know what you want to read about - and we’re always just a phone call away.

One way to find out what our online readership was especially interested in is to round up our top 10 articles for 2017 via Google Analytics. So according to Google, here’s what you all responded to the most. Hopefully, you will find good advice to revisit or a new article you haven’t read yet. Happy New Year and happy reading!
