PLYMOUTH- Saturday is St. Michael Sesquicentennial Feast Day celebrating 150 years of St. Michael Catholic Church.
Jorge Mendoza, a parishioner of Mexican heritage, had a dream where both Anglo and Hispanic church members could celebrate with a huge religious event open to the whole community.
â€śThe spark gathered momentum when both Father William Kummer and Father Eloy Jimenez supported the idea of creating an outdoor event in honor of the occasion, â€śsaid Mendoza.
He called it â€ś St. Michael Street Fair.â€ť
Jorgeâ€™s plan grew. Many individuals volunteered their time, ideas and donations.

CULVER â€” Plymouthâ€™s girls entered the high school cross country season with high expectations. Last yearâ€™s team made it to the New Prairie semistate and most of those runners are back, so why wouldnâ€™t they?
Somewhere along the way, though, the working-for-it part got blurred a little bit.
â€śI think there was a little bit of an attitude that all they had to do was show up when the season began,â€ť recounts coach Jami Holm, who was less than thrilled with her teamâ€™s practice habits in early August.
