Invasive Wildflowers Overtaking Parshallville. Purple Loosestrife (left) and the Garlic Mustard (right).

As you travel Cullen Road between Clyde and Parshallville Roads you will see the highly invasive Purple Loosestrife in full bloom in the wetland areas of our community. It's an attractive tall plant with many purple flowers.

The plants seeds spread by the wind and birds as it crowds out native wildflowers and other native plant and animal life. During the past few years it has spread very rapidly in our wetland areas.

Former resident shares some memories

By webmaster - Posted on Jul 31, 2011

Parshallville.com recently received a very special message from a former resident who now resides in Fullerton, CA. Be sure and click through to read the entire message.

"My name is Jack W. Ries ("J.R."), son of Wayland C. Ries who used to live in Parshallville, brother to Gary L. Ries who also lived in Parshallville. Gary/Sandy Ries now are residing in Howell area. We moved to the Kaufman farm on Allen Road when we were very young from a house on the Crouse Farm in Hartland. We attended Hartland school and later graduated from Flint Junior College — all back in the middle and late 50's. Gary retired from the G.M Proving Grounds."

"I just went back in time and remembered we as a family moved to the Kaufman farm when we were about 9 or 10 years old… then moved to the home at 6070 Linden Rd a few years later. There are so many, many memories that I experienced while living at 6070 Linden Road. Actually, it was my fathers house and eventually my brother Gary built a home at 6100 Linden Road, near Mildred Roe’s Home."

Easter Egg Hunt a Hit

By webmaster - Posted on Jun 15, 2011

Over 70 kids gathered at the Cider Mill for PCA’s 14th annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Over 70 kids gathered at the Parshallville Cider Mill on Saturday April 23rd for PCA’s 14th annual Easter Egg Hunt. The eggs were filled with candy and prizes.

Owen Edgar won the Jelly Bean Guess. John Chase and Jack Kangas won the Boys’ Easter Baskets and Grace Dye and Riley Detter won the Girls’ Baskets.

Special thanks to Jack and Sandy Detlefs for the use of the Mill property; Scott and Carrie Campbell and family for filling 1,000 eggs and Sidney Snyder, Thayne Bilicki, Anna, Matt and Robbie Hense for hiding the eggs. Great fun was had by all.

Fun Fact

The Purple Gang, notorious Prohibition bootleggers from Detroit, owned a farm in Parshallville on Allen Rd. It was common knowledge amongst the locals that the mobsters stayed at the farm, which was one of many hideouts in rural Michigan. Chicago mobster Al Capone was rumored to have visited the farm.
