The Winter Whimsy Marketplace is scheduled for Saturday, December 10 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm in the HESSC building (old Hartland HS) on M-59. Fundraising coordinator, Kailey Jenks, said the event is a gym-wide fundraiser and a majority of the proceeds will be distributed to the academy’s 110+ gymnasts to cover leotard costs, dues, meet fees, and more. Jenks said she is working closely with the Hartland Women’s Club to keep the layout, fees, and policies similar to the past.

The craft bazaar was previously hosted by the Hartland Women’s Club for nearly 40 years. In 2022, the club voted to dissolve the 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

The Hartland Consolidated Schools Board of Education unanimously voted to appoint Cindy Shaw to the seat vacated by Bill Gatewood.
