IMLAY CITY — New Imlay City Area Chamber of Commerce Director Wendy Muehleisen is in need of volunteers to assist with the 2017 Blueberry Festival Auction.
This year's Blueberry Auction will take place Saturday, March 25.
Money raised from the Blueberry Auction is critical to the success of this summer's Blueberry Festival, which takes place July 21-22 in downtown Imlay City.
The event features live music, children's games and contests, food concessions, fireworks, Little Miss Blueberry contestants, the traditional Blueberry Festival Parade on Saturday, July 22 and much more.

The success of the event is also reliant on donations of goods and services to be auctioned off on March 25.
