Arthur Hughes, former owner of Dearborn Farm Market, dies at 82 - Detroit Free Press
Hughes' youngest son, Patrick, was 13 when his father opened the Dearborn Farm Market in 1983. Before that, Hughes worked for the now-defunct Chatham Supermarket chain. He then decided to have his own business and opened the grocery store with business partner, Doug Hirvella.
Patrick's first job was at the store, where he collected carts, checked egg cartons for cracks and took out the garbage. He said he had to "start at the bottom."
"He was one of the toughest guys I've met," said Patrick. "Physically, mentally, he was a stickler for detail. But he was a softie, no doubt about it."
Hughes' "soft" side came out when he was giving back to the community. He would help out regularly with the Dearborn Fire Department's Burn Drive, donating 10,000 to 12,000 ears of corn and delivering all the pumpkins for the event in person.
In addition, he contributed to the Special Olympics, Dearborn Schools and local churches.

One of Patrick's favorite memories of his father was when he would host a fundraiser at the store every Labor Day weekend in conjunction with the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon hosted by comedian Jerry Lewis. The event would feature hot dogs, a clown, music and balloon for the kids.
"It was like a big carnival-like atmosphere," he said. "My dad would have a bullhorn and he would be walking around, drumming up like he was the carnival runner. He would try to drum up support for people to get involved in the raffle and it was just a weekend event of fun."
Patrick said about 10 years ago, Whitmore-Bolles Elementary in Dearborn held an assembly, titled, "Art Appreciation Day."
"My dad was the focus of that," he said. "It was pretty special and amazing that they took time and had that for my dad."
Patrick would go on to follow in his dad's footsteps. He purchased the T... Mar 2, 2017

Chatham Author Ventresca's New Novel "Black Flowers, White Lies" Now Available
CHATHAM, NJ - There was one meeting of the Chatham Rolling Hill Association Book Club where Yvonne Ventresca must have sounded like the know-it-all on the book being discussed, Pandemic.
The other members of the club didn't mind that Ventresca did a lot of the talking because she didn't just read the book, she wrote it.
Although Pandemic is categorized as a "Young Adult" novel, it was of interest to the book club members because they knew the author and also because the fictional setting was based on Chatham and the surrounding area.

Ventresca, a Chatham mother of two, was the winner of the 2015 Atlantic Region Crystal Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators for her novel Pandemic.
