The Enbridge pipeline expansion project has started — and it has already caused problems for local residents along the pipeline route that runs directly through Parshaville.

Long-time residents David and Debbie Hense have been recently battling Enbridge over land-clearing on their property. The bold moves and decisions by Enbridge have prompted them and other area residents to take a stand.

Steven Jr. and Family (Look closely and you can see his colored wing feathers)

By Nancy Posey

Many will remember the countless winters spent keeping the Parshallville Mill Pond open so that Stephen the goose could have a safe haven to spend the winters. A small pump kept the pond water open. Bubbles danced with delight as Stephen and his many wild friends played while the snow, wind and sleet kept us all inside safe in our warm homes. It was a sight to behold seeing Stephen the white goose sleeping in that open pond water. He was happy.

Kayaking Day

By webmaster - Posted on Jul 2, 2012

On Saturday June 16, four women from Parshallville with four of their family and friends kayaked the Huron River from a Wixom Rd. park in Oakland County upstream into Proud Lake where they swam at a sand bar, talked, photographed, ate snacks and rested in the sunshine; then paddled back to their trucks. They encountered a swan family, woods, marshes and the small dam where a crowd was partying and swimming.

Ed Gren of Parshallville (pictured in the center holding a black bat) is one of their star players. He can do it all…he is a great fielder and he has a wicked bat.

You can cheer them on every Wednesday at 10:00am at Tags Softball Field south of Highland Road behind the Miniature Golf off Old US-23. Come cheer the teams on and have some fun! You can check their website for further information.

Look what I saw today

Not sure if is was a fox or a coyote. Let me know in the comments below.

Not sure if that's a fox or a coyote, but I saw this little guy about 100 yards away from me while I was cutting the grass today. I have never seen one in the middle of the day (about 2:00pm), so I jumped off my tractor and grabbed my camera. He came out of that large 92 acre parcel on Parshallivlle Rd just north of Clyde.

I think it's a Red Fox that appears to be shedding his winter coat, but I'm not sure. If you have any idea what it might be, please comment below.

Larry Detter announces instructions to the little ones at this year's PCA Easter Egg Hunt on April 7 at the Cider Mill.

The 15th Annual Easter Egg Hunt of the Parshallville Community Association was a great success! On the Saturday before Easter over 130 children, parents, grandparents and friends gathered at the Cider Mill to search for eggs and visit with one another. At least 62 children from barely-walking age to teens raced for the candy-filled eggs. As usual, the little children were sent off first and then the older ones.
