Update for Monday, July 22, 2024

My day job has been very busy lately so I haven't been able to add much content. I did want to mention some sad news. The Ramona Roller Rink in Sister Lakes has burned. Additionally, 2 Drive-Ins in Southwest Michigan, the 5 Mile in Dowagiac and the Sunset in Hartford, have closed and are now for sale. Hopefully whoever buys the drive-ins will keep them going somehow but for now they have gone dark.
