Michigan Maple Weekend 2017 has been an idea that many members have shared for years. This year will be designated our Fifth Annual Michigan Maple weekend. The MMSA board determined that three separate weekends would be best in order to accommodate the distinct areas of the state and the weather that affects them. The area below US 10 would be held the weekend of March 18-19 and above US 10 would be March 25-26. The Upper Peninsula would be April 1-2. You can be open other weekends if you like, but these are the official weekends that will be advertised, if you are to open only one of the two days that is also acceptable.
This is a totally voluntary event. Those farms participating will be included in a printed brochure to be handed out in welcome centers, Chamber of Commerce and other public places. The plan is to provide you with signs and printed brochures. A cost of $50.00 will be charged to participate in this event. Participants will have their information placed on the Michigan Maple Weekend website. Each farm will receive brochures for your distribution. First time participants will receive 5 signs, last year’s participants will receive 3 signs if needed. The printed brochures and signs will be distributed at the Annual meeting on January 21, 2017.
Please fill out the information form included and return it to me along with a payment by December 12, 2016. Materials will be disturbed at the January 21 meeting or shipped for a charge of $25.00.
