Chief’s suggestions include the need for more vendors

A letter from Larry Roslund aka Chief BirdBrain on the improvement of the Fallasburg village bazaar
Emma,
As I discussed with you at the show, the venue is a wonderful place to spend two days but only if there are customers there to look at the booths. Obviously, those customers are close by at the Arts Festival but were not enticed to come over to the Village. I sold $133.00 of items and a normal two-day show would be $500.00 to $1,000.
In talking to a number of customers who visited the Arts Festival, they commented on the lack of knowledge about the Village, did not know there were more booths across the bridge and in a few cases stated that they had driven by but there were not enough booths to entice them to stop.
The Arts Festival is a large, and expensive, gathering of mainly high-priced art. As a juried show many crafters do not make the cut to the final 100 vendors. It is a great draw but many people do not buy.
I believe there is a distinction that can be made that would allow a Village “Craft” Bazaar to be successful. 
To do so, there must be “draws” that get people to drive over. Having the houses and museum open would be one, food vendors would help, maybe a Model T car show or even music or demonstrations.
I am not sure what your organization currently has within its membership but if not currently there then maybe some non-members can help. Better signage would also be needed. To be enticing, at least 25 craft booths will be needed. These should be hand-made items that are priced under $100.00.
The parking situation also needs to be more clearly defined and restrooms must be provided.
The vendors were also discussing a horse and buggy to bring people from the Arts Festival or golf carts. Maybe someone should be in the parking lot of the Arts Festival handing out brochures about the Village Craft Bazaar. Better signage is a must.
You need to play up the historical aspect of the Village since that appears to be what you are trying to preserve. The ball game seems to be trying to do that but there were no people watching and it was not publicized to the general public. The time of the game seemed to be early and there were no signs to direct people to it.
We discussed your Facebook postings but the vendors were not added to your Facebook page. This should happen automatically upon getting an application submitted. In addition, brochures should be available to be handed out at earlier craft shows to get the 25 plus that you need. I would be willing to help with that effort.
The Arts Festival is in its 42nd year, I am sure they had growing pains to get there. You have much more land to work with, a beautiful shady spot for vendors and can keep prices down to attract more vendors. All of that should make for a successful event.

Note: Larry said he was coming back next year, much like the majority of the current vendors.

FHS president’s message for fall

I heard someone say it just the other day, “summer has just flown by,” and it’s true.  The silver lining in that cloud is the onset of fall.  Hard to argue it’s not the most beautiful season in West Michigan.

A big thanks to our volunteers

Cooperative weather patterns have facilitated much-needed village maintenance projects.  Volunteers and jacks-of-all-trades, Mark Kuzee and Alan Rumbaugh, have spearheaded the effort with preparing, patching, painting, carpentry, and electrical work on a variety of FHS properties.  Frank Brechbiel often lends a hand, even yours truly on occasion, and hard not to acknowledge Tina Cadwallader who has been a pretty good sport about cleaning up the messes we make.

A job well-done

 

 

 

Our flagship museum, the schoolhouse

Our Schoolhouse has been kept busy.  She saw two wedding ceremonies, a book signing, Murray Lake Elementary’ s first grade classes, the Fallassburgh Flats Vintage Base Club, and a steady stream of Sunday drivers.

Wedding

Of special note…One of those weddings joined Doug Wilbur, 47-year superintendent of Fallasburg Park, and patron saint of Fallasburg Village in holy matrimony.  Congratulations! Doug & Lori!

Book signing

The book signing, introduced our own Emma Palova’s first book, a collection of short fiction, “Shifting Sands Short Stories,” which Palova describes as “magic realism.”  There’s still a chance to get your own personal signed copy.  Emma will be at our Schoolhouse once again on Saturday, Sept. 16 and Sunday, September 17, from 1-4PM on the big weekend.

Partners in history

Local author book signing at the Fallasburg pioneer village during Fall Fest for the Arts and Fallasburg Village Bazaar

By Emma Palova

Lowell, MI -I find history being the biggest Partner
on my life’s journey. I have to  think back to the Soviet invasion of former Czechoslovakia on August 21, 1968, which has formed my life and the career of a writer all the way to the present author.

If it wasn’t for the Soviet invasion, my father former professor Vaclav Konecny would not have defected the occupied country for the USA. He was one of thousands of expatriates who illegally left the country in protest of the suppression of the Prague Spring reformist movement led by Alexander Dubcek.

I write about this in the Greenwich Meridian where East meets West memoir about the Konecny family immigration saga spanning three generations.

My writing has been inspired by the leader of the 1989 Velvet Revolution, late president Vaclav Havel. I embarked on my professional writing career as a correspondent for Czechoslovak Newsweek, based in New York City.

History continues to inspire me, because I find in it similarities to today’s problems and solutions in the society.

“I have a lifelong passion for history & politics which in turn fuel my writing,” Emma Palova said in a recent interview for the Lowell Ledger.

Palova has been writing about the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS) events since mid 2000s. In 2015, she designed the “The next 50 years of Fallasburg” campaign for the FHS.

FHS president Ken Tamke commented about the collaboration between the historical society and Emma Palova of Emma Blogs, LLC.

 

FHS’ collaboration with Emma Palova was born out of necessity.  Our website was old, outdated, and had too many people trying to fix it.  Realizing the importance of a viable website integrated with social media, but also realizing that a re-design and launch of something new and fresh would take time and money, FHS sought to take an intermediate step so as not to lose our cyber presence completely.  We were familiar with Ms. Palova’s writing as a reporter for the Lowell Ledger.  A proposal was drafted.  Ms. Palova was able to help publicize ongoing FHS events through social media sites and through a blog she created, “Fallasburg Today,” in this interim period.  The same charming coverage present in her writings for the Ledger helped Fallasburg engage its followers and supporters by keeping them informed and up to date while undergoing our website remodel.

 Now, three years later, with a sparkling new website, FHS found Ms. Palova’s work to be indispensable.  Lacking familiarity and comfort with technology aside, Ms. Palova captures nicely the feeling of Fallasburg and its residents.  Her coverage of events attracts people to become involved as volunteers, donors, and participants.  Her knowledge of social media fills a gap that in today’s world, is integral in communicating our message.  FHS could not be happier with Emma Palova and the contribution she makes to the Fallasburg Historical Society.

In the spirit of collaboration, FHS vice-president Tina Siciliano Cadwallader offered that Emma could use the Fallasburg one-room schoolhouse museum for her book-signing events.

A  successful first book signing was held at the museum on July 16.

FB_IMG_1500248313436.jpg
First book signing of Shifting Sands Short Stories at the one-room schoolhouse on July 16, 2017

“I couldn’t be happier, so many of my fans from the newspaper years came to the event,” she said. “Moreover, my parents, whom I write about the Greenwich Meridian saga also attended.”

Emma Palova’s next book signing event of Shifting Sands Short Stories will be held during the Fallasburg Fall Festival for the Arts and the Fallasburg Village Bazaar on Sept. 16 & Sept. 17 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the one-room schoolhouse museum. Everyone is welcome.

Come and explore the ambiance of the 1850s Fallasburg pioneer village and chat with the local author and journalist, who has been covering area events for more than two decades.

The feature photo shows FHS volunteers Addie Abel (right) and Dotty Blain (left) doing what they do best. That is assisting at most of  the events held at the Fallasburg one-room schoolhouse, including Emma’s book signing.

“I share the same passion for history with all the FHS volunteers,” Palova said.

In search of the Fallasburg past online

Searching for the Fallasburg past online

By Emma Palova

Note: This is the second part of a story about a former Calvin College history intern Katelyn Bosch. Bosch completed her internship at the Lowell Area Historical Museum and the Fallasburg Historical Society this summer.

Bosch has laid a foundation for future organizing and computerizing of the FHS artifacts dating back to 1839 when John W. Fallass came to the site.

Fallasburg, MI -The internship has strengthened the bond between the two like-minded organizations, FHS and LAHM, while collectively taking part in preserving, and disseminating the knowledge of the local history, according to FHS president Ken Tamke.

Calvin College intern Katelyn Bosch assisted Fallasburg with computerization of artifacts.

It is the hope that the project of cataloguing and digitalizing the FHS artifacts will continue through another internship.

“It’s been wonderful to experience the whole process of accessing the artifacts and to be the person touching them,” said Bosch. “I’ve enjoyed meeting all the people like Ken and Lisa, who are passionate about this. They were mentors to me.”

Bosch, who will study public history at the West Virginia University in a two-year program views history as an intellectually dynamic field.

“I like to see how people interacted,” she said. “The public history field is very interdisciplinary. It’s about culture, economics and political systems.”

That fits in well with Bosch’s love to travel. She took an off-campus program in Great Britain about British film and media.

“The Internet is the key to get publicity and to find out about history,” she said.

Bosch said she would volunteer again at the local small town museums.

The Misner House
History intern Katelyn Bosch helped organize FHS artifacts.

The Fallasburg village, although frozen in time, is moving ahead with its artifacts and pioneer stories coming alive due to modern technology. As such, the village stands at the intersection of two major study disciplines: strategic communications and history.

“It’s interesting how people will be looking to find historical documents in the right place,” Bosch said.

“The Past Online” project is currently under development, according to LAHM director Lisa Plank. “We will be making an announcement when it’s ready.”

However, in the meantime, a lot of historical facts, documents and pictures can be found on social media like Pinterest. You can go to Pinterest and put in the keywords Fallasburg or Fallasburg Historical Village, and you will find a collection of information pertaining to the village. You can also contribute your news and artifacts pertaining to Fallasburg.

Bosch said that the FHS needs to be as interactive as possible with the public.

“It’s a neat set up here already, you have the main town street preserved and the museum buildings,” she said. “The covered bridge is a huge asset to the village.”

Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour survey

FHS seeks input on annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour in a survey

By Emma Palova

EW Emma’s Writings

The enclosed link to the survey will help improve the Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS) signature event. That is the annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour  (FCBBT) held mostly on the Sunday following the July 4th holiday.

 

The routes have been designed for all riders regardless the level of experience. The shorter 12 & 28 mile routes are great for families. The 12-mile route is a loop around the beautiful Fallasburg Park located in northeast Kent County. The 28-mile route goes from the Fallasburg Covered Bridge to the Ada Covered Bridge. All routes are on paved roads and they include public bathroom stops.

The FHS makes every effort to assist riders in need with SAG (supportandgear) aka broom wagon.

Mark your calendars for the next FHS event. The 2nd annual Fallasburg Village Bazaar will be held on Sept.17 & 18 in the historic village of Fallasburg. So, come and explore our house museums: the one room schoolhouse, the Fallass House & the Misner House.

Don’t forget to stop by the Fallassburgh Field to see the vintage Fallassburgh Flats base ball team play the game without gloves on Sept. 17.

Follow us on twitter @fallasburg, #fallasburg, #puremichigan, and on other social media.

Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour

Pedal through the beautiful countryside at your own pace

By Emma Palova

EW Emma’s Writings

Lowell, MI- The 22nd annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour is set for Sunday, July 10th with registration in person at the one-room schoolhouse from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Pre- registration online is at http://www.fallasburg.org or at the Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour page for $25 per individual, $35 for family before July 6th. After the deadline and in person, there will be an additional $5 charge.

There are several tour options ranging from 12 miles to 100 miles.

The most traveled route is the 28-mile route to Ada and back from the Fallasburg Covered Bridge to the Ada Covered Bridge , according to Fallasburg Historical Society (FHS) president Ken Tamke,“It is a reasonably flat and easy ride for families and casual riders,” said Tamke.

The second most popular route is the South 50, which travels along rivers and streams through  beautiful farmland.

Although the main reason to bike any of the routes is fitness, the camaraderie and feeling of accomplishment and adventure of a bicycle tour with friends or family is even better.
“It is exhilarating and exciting to set out on a journey and successfully attain your goal, whether it be 12 miles, 28 miles, 50 miles or 100,” said Tamke.
The Covered Bridge Bike Tour has grown from just a handful of registrants to 253 registrants last year. But, 250 registrants means 300 plus riders as family registrations can cover multiple riders.
Fallas CBBT
Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour
“We’ve had modest gains, with more people joining the fun each year,” said Tamke.
The riders can select the distance they wish to ride from 12 miles to 100. They can also combine routes to get some variety. The 12-mile route climbs up Covered Bridge Road, over MacPherson to Sayles, then along the Flat River into Lowell and back to the village via Lincoln Lake.
The 28-mile route travels into Lowell along Lincoln Lake, then west along Grand River to Ada Park. The half-way point and rest stop is at the Ada Covered Bridge. The route follows the same path back to Fallasburg.
The 50-mile route south follows the same route as the 28, but turns south at Buttrick and heads down to 100th, then back east to Alden Nash and back up to Lowell and Lincoln Lake.
The 50-mile north route follows briefly the same path as the 12, but continues on into Ionia with a rest stop at the Blanchard House, then on to Saranac and back to Lowell along Riverside and eventually to the Fallasburg Village.
Last year approximately 20 riders completed the 100. They do the South 50 in the morning and the North 50 in the afternoon.
Fallas bike tour reg.
Registration at the one-room schoolhouse museum.
All proceeds from the bike tour go for the continued preservation of Fallasburg Village. The historical society uses the funds to maintain properties and implement educational programs.  Fallasburg Historical Society is an all-volunteer organization so monies collected don’t pay a salary, but pay to  fix things and teach people about Fallasburg history.
All routes begin and end in Fallasburg Village. The Misner House is the command center and serves as an outdoor lunchroom.
Dorothy “Dottie” Blain cooks a country-style Italian spaghetti and meatball feast and its vegetarian version  with garlic bread and strawberry shortcake for dessert.
“Our riders absolutely rave about our food,” said Tamke. Additionally, all routes offer home-baked goodies, fruit and water or Gatorade at rest stops along the way.  Each route has a rest stop.
Late Priscilla Lussmeyer came up with the idea of having a bike ride as a fundraiser for the society 22 years ago. She enlisted the help of one of her many friends who was into biking as a means to raise money for the society. It has grown steadily from there.
Tamke is hoping for  275 registrants and over 300 riders, 75 degrees, sunny and no humidity or wind – a perfect West Michigan day.
“I hope no one gets hurt, everyone has a fantastic time and tell all their friends about it so they can participate in the 23rd annual Fallasburg Covered Bridge Bike Tour,” said Tamke.
Tour options (in miles): 12, 28, 40, 50, 62, 78 or 100.
Registration fee: $25 for individuals / $35 for families.
