MAPLELICIOUS

On Saturday, March 10th Davison Parks and Recreation held a Maple syrup event at the Williams site museum. Children and adults tasted sap and saw a demonstration on the tapping of a tree.  There were crafts for kids and a food truck was on site selling pancakes and sausage.  Our own Terry Wolfe was the only museum volunteer to help with the event and watch over our artifacts and displays.  Thank you Terry, you are sweeter that maple syrup.

GLEANERS BANQUET

On Tuesday, March 27th the Gleaners Heritage Arbor  held a banquet at the Williams site.  The purpose of the event was to recognize community volunteers for their service and award donations to various organization that serve people in our area and surrounding communities.  The Davison Historical Society received a donation for helping with the event.  We felt blessed to be in the company of so many loving and giving individuals.  Thank you to everyone who helped make the evening a success

HOPEFUL FOR GRANT

Designs have been drafted for two new showcases to be installed at the Williams site museum.  Each case will measure 7 ft. tall x 2 1/2 ft. wide by 10″ deep.  They will feature 6 shelves each and have plexiglass fronts.  Volunteers will construct the showcases and the Historical Society is applying for a grant to cover the cost of materials.  We are hopeful that we will receive the grant because the display space is greatly needed.

SPRING SPRUCE UP

A date will be set sometime in May for outdoor cleanup and repairs at the city site.  The Gleaners have generously consented to help with the project, but we still need more historical society volunteers.  Please contact the museum at 810-658-2286 for a date and time for the event.  Thank you.

HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SPRING!
