Livingston Centre Historic Society starts new year with meeting on Jan. 4
The Livingston Centre Historic Society has had a very productive year. The Spring Gramma's Attic Sale resulted in greater profits than the previous year. The Historic Village welcomed many new and returning visitors during the Fowlerville Family Fair, with docents offering tours every afternoon. September's Fall Fest was well attended and the annual raffle brought even better profits than previous years.
Because of these successful events and an increase in volunteers to help, restoration and improvement to the property has been increasing. A few more items on the priority list have been accomplished, including completed repairs on two roofs, a new picket fence near the Coughran School and the recently re-opened Kirkland House, as well as on-going improvements inside the Pere Marquette Depot.
The entire volunteer staff is encouraged by the success of this past year and are already beginning plans for the May, 2018 Gramma's Attic, the next Fowlerville Fair and the September Fall Fest. Among the goals for the coming year is increasing the open dates for the Village to offer more opportunities for visits. Select buildings continue to be available for wedding, shower, party and event rental; information is available through the Fair Office.
The first meeting of 2018 will be held Thursday, Jan. 4, 7:00 p.m. in the Fair Office. Newcomers, and new ideas, are always welcome!
