Monday, Oh Monday

It’s Monday Mash Time here at Flint Club. As we race (get it? Race…Crim…No? Well we keep trying) toward a long holiday weekend let’s take a look back at the weekend that was.

-The Crim Festival of Races was this weekend. The Flint Journal is reporting that it was a record year for participation. Over 16,000 runners, walkers, wheelers, and strollers. We here at Flint Club are not surprised by the turn out. After the Back To The Bricks celebration was such a success last week.

-The Flint Islamic Center Youth Group and the City of Flint Housing Commission teamed up to offer a Day of Dignity, where the homeless could receive medical supplies, and receive medical testing, as well as everyday use items.  Over 500 people attended and benefited from the event.

-No one had a guess for the Friday Foto Contest this past Friday. So the location will remain a mystery for now…

-Did we miss something positive that happened in Flint this weekend? Leave it in the comments for us.

-And you can always email us any events taking place as well

Where? Where?

It is Friday Foto Contest Time! Where in Flint is this?? Be the first to guess the correct location and win a cool Flint Club T-Shirt. Leave your guess in the comments and we will reveal the winner on Monday.

Good Luck, Happy Guessing, Enjoy the Crim Festival of Races this weekend.
