Flying Saucer and Bigfoot

Bigfoot is in the trees at the Propane building, and the UFO is next door at the Cub Cadet Dealer.

Bigfoot and friends.

Right off the highway. The Bigfoot statue is in the trees, before you get to the UFO. We would have missed it if my daughter did not see it.

Allen Boertman and his creation.

Shaftsburg MI UFO

My father, Allen Boertman, built the UFO at the corner of old Lansing Rd and Woodbury Rd. It is the first of three that he constructed and sold. The original dome was destroyed in a storm and had to be replaced, but aside from that the UFO has remained in remarkable condition over the years. He passed away in 2014 of Alzheimer's but prior to falling ill, he had the most brilliant mind, creating and selling many wonderful things. The UFOs, however, were always his favorite.
