Wellings completes training in D.C. Ariana Wellings of Saline recently completed training at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. As DECA’s District 4 representative, she is ready to lead more than 7,000 Michigan DECA members toward a successful year. Michigan DECA, an association of marketing students, is an organization focused preparing emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. The 10 student leaders that make up Michigan DECA’s State Executive Council were sworn in at the 65th annual State Career Development Conference March 14. These 10 individuals were selected by their peers after a two-day campaign process that included creating a campaign booth and presenting a speech to more than 2,500 Michigan DECA members that attended the conference. The Michigan DECA State Executive Council is dedicated to providing experiences for each member

that will empower them to achieve personal and professional growth. To achieve this, each year the executive council develops and executes a program of work. This year’s program of work includes goals to increase membership. The state officers are also requested by chapters throughout the state to share their knowledge of leadership and the many benefits that DECA provides to high school students who are working toward a successful future. They also preside over 15 student-oriented conferences throughout the year. Wellings, daughter of Stacey and Doug Wellings of Saline, has attended DECA conferences throughout Michigan and in Louisville, Ky. Wellings says she ran for Michigan DECA State Office because she wants “to become more involved Ariana Wellings of Saline recently completed training at George with DECA.” Washington University in Washington, D.C. as part of DECA, an Wellings will be a senior association of marketing students. at Saline High School. She is also active in soccer and as her class secretary. She enjoys soccer, DECA and being with friends.

customers, and we’re having more vendors tomorrow.” Though the Rentschler Farm sale was impressive enough in size to satisfy the average bargain-hunting shopper, Dikeman said she had a few customers tell her of lofty shopping ambitions. “Somebody told me they were going to every single sale from here to the Irish Hills,” she said. The historical society was also celebrating the grand opening of its new gift shop, which is housed in a repurposed farm building recently moved to the property. Dikeman said they were offering a 20 percent off sale on all Saline-related merchandise during the event, including books, DVDs and local goods, but that by far the most purchased item was a certain tasty beverage. “The most popular item we’re selling is the Walker Tavern Root Beer,” she said, mentioning the state park complex west of Clinton along US-12. Roger Julie of Ypsilanti was one of the vendors selling assorted items that day, and he said his booth in front of the farm house was stocked with inventory from a former family antique business. “We had a store in Depot Town up until 1997,” he said, adding that the name of the store originally was Cross Street Antiques. Though he no longer has a physical storefront, Julie said he hosts three or four other shows a year to display his stock. “It’s pretty eclectic odds and ends,” he said. “We’re cleaning out the back room of the garage. It’s across the board.” Though his items were varied, Julie said people were mostly attracted to one particular type of antique he had on hand. “We’ve been selling a lot of these old wooden clamps,” he said. “I sold almost all I brought and I started out with 25.” Each one cost $5. Julie said he does not mind

parting with his inventory because he does not really have a favorite kind of antique or collectable. “We buy things and sometimes keep them for a few years and then sell them,” he said. Behind the Rentschler home was Margaret Lane’s booth, where an assortment of clothing could be seen hanging from a line. “I have Halloween costumes and Boy Scout outfits,” she said. “We have five Scouts in the family.” Lane also had a men’s bike for sale and other knickknacks, but she said a produce item was noticeably her best seller. “My cucumbers are really selling,” she said. “It has been pretty good.” Shopping the event was Michelle Kraft of Milan, who said she brought her daughter, Michelle Kraft, 5, to Rentschler Farm because of the girl’s newfound fondness for garage sales. “This is the first time we’ve done this,” she said of the US12 sale. “She got interested in garage sales pretty much this summer.” Kraft said they really didn’t have a game plan in terms of what kind of items they were looking for, but rather were just keeping their eyes open for things that captured their interest. The Rentschler sale was just the beginning of their bargain hunting, however, Kraft said. “We’re going down Michigan Avenue,” she said. The US-12 Heritage Trail Garage Sale stretched from Detroit to New Buffalo. Steven Howard can be reached at 429-7380 or showard@heritage.com.
