Join the Mishawaka Parks Department for their annual Winter Festival on Saturday, December 6th from 5:00-8:00pm at Merrifield Park and Ice Rink.
Winterfest features an evening of fun-filled, family friendly, free winter activities, including ice skating and horse drawn sleigh rides/wagon rides (weather permitting), visits with Santa, ice sculpting demonstration, a live nativity scene along with a petting zoo, bonfire and complimentary refreshments (hot cocoa, cookies and popcorn). New this year is the addition of an outdoor movie as Dr. Suess’s "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" will be shown.
As in prior years, there will be a collection point for the donation of nonperishable and canned food items for the Mishawaka Food Pantry.
Will Mishawaka keep the Red Kettle Trophy, or will South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg bring it to the 14th floor in South Bend? Your donation to The Salvation Army could make the difference! Last year, Mayor Dave Wood of Mishawaka claimed the 1st annual traveling trophy by collecting more kettle donations in one hour than Mayor Buttigieg.
Mishawaka Mayor David Wood announced today that he has appointed William (Bill) Pemberton to the School City of Mishawaka School Board. The appointment will take effect on January 1, 2015 and is the first time a mayor has had the opportunity to appoint a school board member in Mishawaka.
The Mishawaka Street Department will begin the city’s annual fall leaf collection program on Monday, October 20, 2014 and will follow a schedule that should help residents plan their leaf raking activities. Residents may begin raking leaves to their curbside starting the weekend of October 18-19. Leaves will be picked up each week on the day before each resident’s regular trash pick-up day. Those with a Monday trash pickup will have their leaves picked up on Friday. The leaf collection program will continue through November or until leaves are no longer a problem for residents.
