A Superior Weekend

At the Chocolay Area Harvey Daze Festival at the Silver Creek Recreation Area Saturday, officers from the Chocolay Township Police Department were on hand with bicycle helmets for kids of all ages. The kids were fitted with the correct size helmet and able to take it home for free. Officer Zane Weaver fits Lucas, age 4,­ with a helmet and also shows him the inside of the police squad vehicle. The proceeds from the annual Harvey Daze Car Show will go to the Lions Club of Harvey and the Marquette Salvation Army. (Journal photos by Amy Grigas)
