Plans are underway for a Groundcover presence in 4th of July Parades, the Ann Arbor Art Fair and the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival. Professional signs will soon be ordered to help vendors sell to cars in outlying areas. Plans are also firming up for a night of comedy in late September that will double as a fundraiser for Groundcover News. We might even get it together to do another music bash this summer! Thanks to everyone who came out to help us move things forward.

This past Friday evening, long-time Groundcover News vendor Shelley DeNeve and Groundcover volunteers Lauren Halperin and Joe Sloan had the opportunity to participate in the super-fun and very Ann Arbory Festifools Foolmoon luminary parade.
They met up with one of three luminary groups at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (the other two began at Slauson Middle School and Kerrytown), and made their merry way through downtown Ann Arbor.
The parade was very colorful with people covered in flashing lights playing music, dancing, singing, and making everyone who saw them smile widely. Many onlookers joined in the revelry.
A good time was had by all.
A big shout out to the Festifools crew! You all did such a wonderful job making this a fun and positive event that exemplifies the strengths and unique qualities of this wonderful community, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Thanks to all you Groundcover News supporters who helped our vendors reach their goal of 6000 papers in March!
We are upping the goal for April, so make sure to get your copy today!
