"Life is good in Jonesville"
Veterans are celebrated in Jonesville Michigan on Veterans Day at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. An annual program is performed at the Jonesville Middle School Gym. Local and visiting service men and women are honored by middle and high school students, along with local residents, officials, and business people. One era of conflict is remembered as the main part of the program. Students who have competed for the honor will give their speech on freedom and patriotism. The local band plays while flag twirlers perform and a color guard is present.
To assure veterans that they are in town in time to enjoy this program, Munro House offers free rooms to veterans of any era and any branch of service for the night before. Tuesday, November 10, is the date for free bed and breakfast. At random intervals, we will release rooms in this contest via our Facebook feed. The first veteran to call, will get the room for free. We will continue to release all of our available rooms at random in the weeks preceding Veterans Day until they are all gone. To guarantee that the vet will come to Jonesville, we take a $30 deposit. Upon arrival, we will give them a $30 gift card for dinner at Saucy Dog in Jonesville. The bed and breakfast will cost them nothing. A photo of the veteran in uniform is required to verify service.
Step 1 is to 'Like" Munro House Bed and Breakfast on Facebook. Step 2 is to watch for a posting in your Facebook feed that announces the release of a specific room. Step 3 is to be the first caller to 1-800-320-3792. It is just that simple. Sometimes, the room is claimed within minutes, sometimes it takes longer. Then come to Jonesville to have dinner downtown and breakfast with other veterans. Then go 3 blocks to the middle school for the Veterans Day program.
Agatha Christie's play, "The Mousetrap", will be playing at the Sauk Theater in Jonesville, MI October 15-25, 2015. The Mousetrap is a murder mystery that is the longest running play in history. The Mousetrap opened in the Westend of London and has been continuously playing since 1952. With over 25,000 performances, it is easily the longest running show of any kind during the modern era. Patrons are encouraged to keep the twist ending to themselves as not to spoil it for folks who have not yet seen the play. The shows are scheduled for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00, and Sunday afternoon matinees at 3:00.
We have several Fall Getaway Ideas that couples can enjoy for an Autumn Getaway. Fall is my favorite time of year. I want to get out and do things. I want to enjoy the sunshine and the mild temperatures. I want to view the farmers' harvest and the color change of the landscape. I want to eat simple meals during the day and go to a great restaurant at night. Above all, I want to spend time with my wife.
There is still time for a Summer Getaway in Michigan. Yes, it is time to think about the kids going back to school, but Michigan passed a law a few years ago that requires public schools to open after Labor Day. That means that there is still time for a day trip or long weekend in Michigan. Even if the kids are in school, a Back to School Special Package is still available through mid September. This could be the last chance for teachers and parents to relax and recharge before school starts.
Munro House offers an opportunity for all the decisions to be made for you. We pick the restaurants, we pick the masseuse, and we pick the movie theater as part of the Back to School Getaway Package. You choose what to eat, the intensity of the massage, and the movie to watch. Our selections have a successful rate of service and quality. Your choices have a variety of flavor, intensity, and mood. Together, we can arrange a high quality agenda that puts you in the right places to make good decisions for an enjoyable getaway.
The dinners are located just a two block walk from our house. Saucy Dog is a barbeque place offering ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken, sandwiches, and beef brisket. It is my favorite restaurant in the whole world--partly because of its proximity to my house, the variety of choices, and the friendly staff. Olivia's Chop House is a fine dining experience with outstanding soups, salads, and appetizers along with a varied selection of entrees and desserts. Steaks and seafood are featured with additional choices like roast duck and pork shanks. No dress code at either place means patrons can 'come as you are'.
The trial gardens at Rakers Acres in Litchfield, Michigan, are open for the season. Several acres of professionally planted flowers are on display at Raker's. Seed companies from across the country, and around the world, display their expertise in growing annual and perennial flower gardens and hanging baskets. An incredible array of floral beauty is available to casually peruse and enjoy.
