Brandenburg Park admission will be waived during that time for attendees, township Supervisor Michael Lovelock said.

The women's boutique opened this month on Washington Street in the city's downtown.
Female shoppers who prefer boutiques over big department stores have a new reason to come to downtown New Baltimore. Willy & Babbish Boutique, 51034 Washington Street, opened recently in the historic downtown, catering to women seeking accessories, clothes and home products. Fittingly for the shop near Anchor Bay, nautical-inspired merchandise is also on the rack, according to store owners and sisters Carrie and Jill Leger. The owners selected New Baltimore because they wanted shoppers to feel "like they were on a weekend getaway, exploring a whimsical little shop in some quaint up north town, without having to leave their backyard," Carrie Leger said. "Downtown New Baltimore seemed to be the perfect fit. It has the charm of a small beach-…

About 80 seniors utilize existing programs at the rec center each week.
New Baltimore’s park and recreation director says he hopes to better cater to local seniors in the future. “We’d like to have a vibrant senior center,” Brian Kay said Wednesday, a sentiment he brought up at the last City Council meeting. It’s not known when or if a senior center could be created because of funding and space limitations. Among the possibilities to explore are building a center or adding on to the existing recreation center on Washington Street, he said. There are roughly 80 seniors who utilize the facility each week, but there’s not always enough room for additional programs or people in the center. “Ultimately, it’s going to come down to a decision of what the city wants to do with the recreation building,” Kay said.

The annual Polar Bear Plunge capped off the three-day New Baltimore Lions Club Winterfest fundraiser in downtown New Baltimore.
Late January cold and ice didn't stop Polar Bear Plungers from braving frigid Anchor Bay waters Sunday for charity. Defying reason and comfortable body temperatures, teams of plungers eased onto the icy lake to dip into a makeshift pool for the New Baltimore Lions Club Winterfest fundraiser. The annual event drew a large crowd that spilled onto the pier and shoreline at Burke Park. See our photo gallery and video here. Did you participate in the Polar Bear Plunge?

The third and last day of the New Baltimore Lions Club Winterfest is Sunday.
Polar Bear Plungers are bracing themselves today for a wintry dip in Lake St. Clair. Unlike last year, when plungers ran into Anchor Bay, the iced-over lake brings back a makeshift pool amid vast sheets of ice. That's reminiscent of the 2011 Winterfest, when participants dipped in and out of icy waters from a carved-out section of the lake. New Baltimore Fire Chief Ken Lawfield says firefighters will be present to ensure safety on the lake. The New Baltimore Lions Club, which puts on Winterfest, will have warming tents for plungers before and after the dive. There was roughly 10-12 inches of ice on Anchor Bay by late last week, Lawfield said. Outdoor temperatures during the plunge are expected to reach a high of 29 degrees with a south …
