These dates below are not exact. They are the average time the item is available on a normal year. The only problem is in Michigan we never have normal years. Sometimes they are earlier and sometimes they are later.

I am starting a Email Newsletter soon, so if you want the most up to date information sent to your email, please sign up for the newsletter. This is the most reliable way of making sure the information is delivered to you every week. But now I am trying to learn how to design and start it. It is alot more complicated than I thought it would be. I am sorry but I am having problems getting this going, Technology does not like me.
