Pine River heritage was on display Thursday-Sunday, Sept. 6-9, when the community hosted several of its most popular traditions.

There was something for everyone in town during the annual Heritage Days events. If tea is your thing, Tea at the Station was Thursday, Sept. 6, at the Pine River Depot. If pioneer living is your thing, the 1830s encampment at Forbes Park had a lot to offer Friday and Saturday, Sept. 7-8. If you are a crafter, the annual United Methodist Church Quilt Show had a plethora of designs on display. For those who like free lunch, the hobo stew Saturday, Sept. 8, at Forbes Park was sponsored by the Pine River State Bank, New Worth Asset Management and Cass Company Insurance.
