Maybe you already heard the great news at the Wine Tasting Celebration, but the Friends have taken a major step forward. We purchased a house next to the dam in Corunna, and will be converting it into our office and meeting place, complete with storage space and amazing public visibility.
We are just now beginning to assess and make plans to find the best use of the building and the property. If you have building trades skills and are interested in helping, please join us at a special meeting at the new house to see the potential for yourself and do some brainstorming with us.
The other part of the great news is that the Friends are partnering with the City of Corunna to help them with the restoration of the Shiawassee River at the dam site. We supported the City's work with state and federal agencies to assess options for the deteriorating, dangerous dam. The City decided to remove the dam and was awarded several grants to help this process (read more here). Corunna is also making plans for recreational improvements at and around the site, including a walkway along the river. The Friends ownership of property near the dam will help make this walkway possible.
A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
