Councilwoman Annie Boensch, who coordinated similar lunches one Wednesday each month since June, said it provides people a different sort of forum to reach out to Saginaw City Council.
"It's been a very positive experience," Boensch said. "We were looking for ways to get members of council out there more."
The lunch is scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, during the Harvest Days celebration at the farmers market.
Harvest Days consists of events for all ages, including used book sales, health screenings, a mum sale, a pumpkin pie eating contest and live entertainment. Saturday, Sept. 22, is "Kid's Day," with activities, crafts, games and promotions geared toward youth visiting the market.
- A calendar of events during Harvest Days, which runs the three days the farmers market is open, Wednesday through Saturday.
She said Councilman Andrew Wendt has confirmed he will attend Wednesday and councilmen Floyd Kloc and Norman Braddock may also attend. A maximum of four council members can attend, Boensch explained, to avoid having a quorum of the city council present.
Harvest Days is sponsored by the nonprofit PRIDE in Saginaw group. The farmer's market is located at 507 S. Washington Ave. in Saginaw.
