A Beautiful Autumn Day in Alpine Township

It was a beautiful Saturday to spend some time outside and enjoy mother nature and some of the people in Alpine Township.  First was another trip to the newly reconstructed Westgate Neighborhood Park. Leaves are just beginning to change colors and soon everything will be ablaze.

Then it was off to Dunneback and Girls Farms to see how their Chili Cook-Off was coming along.  It was tough to find a place to park.  The cook-off was a big hit and benefited the Michigan Lyme  Disease Association.  Lyme disease is a spirochetal bacterial infection that is thought to be transmitted predominantly by what is referred to as "deer ticks" but can be transmitted by ticks associated with other animals as well.  More information about the disease can be found at the MLDA website.

Then it was a quick stop next door  at Morse Farms on Peachridge  Ave (just south of 6 Mile) to see the great pumpkins

They would have loved to take this home but it was too big to fit in the trunk and too hard to budge,

Yes it was another beautiful day.
