WOULD YOU RATHER DRINK just because, or drink for a cause?

Ferndale’s Pub Crawl has donated more than $150,000 to local charities such as the Michigan AIDS Coalition, the Ferndale Community Foundation, Fern Care and many more for more than a decade. “Different years, different charities.” says Craig Covey, founder and coordinator of Pub Crawl.

Covey started Pub Crawl in 1996. “We had formed a gay residents association in Ferndale called F.A.N.S.,” says Covey. “In addition to political work and civil engagement, we wanted to do social activities. So I came up with the idea of a Pub Crawl.”

The first Pub Crawl included a few bars and 36 people attended. Covey said everyone had such a great time they decided to make it an annual event. The Pub Crawl was opened to the entire community in its third year. “It started off as a gay community social event. Everyone was welcomed, but it was predominantly gay the first couple of years.” says Covey. In its fifth and sixth years, tourists started attending the event. “As the city grew, as downtown grew, we kept adding clubs and bars.” says Covey. Some of the venues have partnered with Pub Crawl since the beginning such as Danny’s Irish Pub, Como’s, SOHO, Rosie O’Grady’s, and Sneakers. Covey and his team are inviting all the new bars in Ferndale to participate in the 2015 Pub Crawl, such as The Fly Trap and Zeke’s Rock and Roll BBQ.

According to Covey, there has never been an arrest of a Pub Crawl attendee since its inception. He credits this success to educating bar hoppers on the dangers of drunk driving and by partnering with companies to drive people home. “Over the years we found different companies to provide rides. We also encourage people to stay in Ferndale and stay with a friend. We’ve had people camp out in back yards in tents.” Planning an event of this scale every year can wear on a person, but Covey said it’s the sense of community that makes it worthwhile. “The most fun part is the people. They have a blast and they meet new people. They’re very friendly, so there’s a lot of bonding.”

The 19th Annual Ferndale Pub Crawl is Friday, July 31 at Twist Night Club located at 22901 Woodward Avenue. Registration is from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and all participants must be 21-years-old to register. Covey invites companies to sponsor this community event. Registered sponsors for the 19th Annual Pub Crawl so far are Garden Fresh Gourmet, Rosie O’Grady’s, Pearl Vodka, Thursdays, Twisted Tavern,

Uber, and Between The Lines Newspaper. For more information about the 19th Annual Ferndale Pub Crawl visit www.ferndalepubcrawl.org. The website will be updated daily with new details. To sponsor this event or become a vendor contact Craig Covey at coveyc@oakgov.com or Monica Mills at mmills@michiganaidscoalition.org.

Sat. May 16

Ferndale’s Beautification Commission has been sponsoring the Perennial Exchange for the last seven years. Formerly held at Kulick Center, the event has always been a blast. Rain or shine it is a good time – and advantageous, too.

“Bring a Plant / Take a Plant,” that’s the deal. Last year we upped the ante to include a raffle with prizes and a 50/50 drawing. Art projects of all sorts (handcrafted by locals) and rain barrels are for sale. We offer free gardening books and information. The City graciously donates free mulch, and Dan from DPW has been kind enough to bring his shovel and dig!

“Bring a Plant / Take a Plant” is our mantra. But stay long enough to enjoy the event, and never mind the “bring.” The event can be downright dirty (pun intended)! Seriously, what’s most uplifting is the opportunity for neighbors to share the fruits of their labor.

FBC members voted last Winter in favor of the idea of a Spring Exchange. Spring

brings renewed energy and motivation. Rebirth!

This year we are pleased to announce that we are adding guest speakers to share their expertise. Featured guest/expert will be Jan of “Two Women and a Hoe.” Check out her web site: www.twowomenandahoe.com

The Commission welcomes everyone to come and share this good time (with benefits). Young or old, beginner to veteran, there is always something to be gained. It takes effort and desire to make an urban neighborhood shine. We invite all to share your experience and your bounty. We are a Commission of seven members, and our desire is to be an influencing factor in the blooming and greening of our hometown. Please come May 16, 10:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. to Blumz by JRDesign on East Nine, our gracious host.

Further details of this year’s event will be posted on Ferndale Forum and “Ferndale Beautification” on Facebook

Spring is upon us and, after a dreadfully cold winter, trash from under the snow is scattered throughout the neighborhoods, drifting on lawns and clogging up storm sewer drains. Would you like to do something about it? Want an excuse to walk around, get some light exercise and socialize with your fellow Ferndalians while doing your city a great service? The ‘Clean The Ferndale Up!’ project is just the ticket.

Clean the Ferndale Up! was established by the Ferndale Community Foundation (FCF) in partnership with the City of Ferndale three years ago. The FCF is a non-profit organization that is very adamant about having unity among those that live in and or work within the city limits. Over the past ten years, the FCF has been helping by funding services in health care, education, arts, culture and recreation.

Clean the Ferndale Up! was designed to clean parks, roadways, and public areas around the city to help maintain the high quality appearance that the city of Ferndale has to offer. At last year’s Clean the Ferndale Up! Event, nearly 100 volunteers

came and showed their support and collectively gathered over eight cubic yards of waste from downtown parking lots and local parks. The fourth annual edition of this event will be held on Saturday, May 16 starting at 8:00 A.M. Volunteers will meet at City Hall at 300 East Nine Mile Road and be assigned into teams. Wear clothing appropriate for the outdoor weather. Trash bags and other equipment will be provided. Volunteers will also receive a complimentary themed T-shirt, while supplies last.

People interested in volunteering can go online and register at www.cleantheferndaleup.com or call (248) 871-7783. Or you can visit them on www.facebook.com/cleanferndaleup or go to www.ferndalecommunityfoundation.org for more info. In addition to volunteers, companies may sponsor this event. Your logo can appear on the volunteer T-shirts, and money will be used to purchase supplies and support the FCF. Let’s make (and keep) our city clean, folks!

They are optimistic this year’s event will be a success not only for Affirmations and the LGBTQ+ community but for the citizenry of Ferndale as a whole.

On Sunday, May 31 from 6:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M., Affirmations will host The Transgender Day of Empowerment. It’s an annual event not only to raise awareness and educate on transgender identification and other issues, but to also to empower transgender people in and around the community, in Ferndale and beyond. Transgender Day of Empowerment is a day about by boldly asking what trans people and their allies can do differently, through actions and attitudes, to help create more empathy and understanding, rather than focusing on, and surrendering to, what others do to deny total equality.

A broad panel of colorful organizers comes together every year to help arrange the event, ranging from representatives of nonprofits such as KICK (The Agency for Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Transgender African- Americans) to volunteers from schools such as Oakland University.

“This day is to empower the transgender community, to show that we are human beings and this is our day,” says Michelle Fox-Phillips, executive director of Transgender Detroit.

Organizers predict the day will succeed in its goal, empowering the transgender community and its allies. The reception of the community members was well received at last year’s event in Ferndale and demonstrated that, as Fox-Phillips put it: “The Ferndale community is very transgender-friendly.”
