Your Village Needs You!!!

Can you help us?

Spring has most definitely sprung in Old Village. We have had beautiful displays of blossom, lilacs and oh my goodness the magnolias this year! The trees are leafy once more and after that long winter we can now start to look forward to the summer.

We have an upcoming beautification project that we really need some volunteers for.

On Saturday June 11th, between 9am and 1pm, we will be joining forces with our friends the Plymouth Pollinators and The Friends of the Rouge, with help from the City of Plymouth and Wayne County to clear some invasive species in and amongst the trees and bushes that grow along the top of Wilcox Lake – that also run along Mill and Wilcox roads.

We are hoping by thinning out the density of the growth here, we might be able to create something of a lake view – maybe a glimpse – from Point Park.

Just imagine – sitting here and maybe seeing Lake Wilcox! How lovely!

Many hands will make light work! If you can spare a few hours on June 11th – meet us at 9am in Point Park – where Northville Rd splits into Starkweather and Mill for a short introduction presentation of what we will be removing. Bring gloves, safety glasses, hand tools – pruners, loppers and hand saw, water to stay hydrated and sunscreen. We will be working until 1pm.

Mark and I live on Mill just up from Point Park, we would like to invite all the workers back to our yard for well earned refreshments and eats afterwards.

Let’s make this a fun community event and make an improvement to our little part of the world. If you can help us on June 11th please fill out the Google form below, so we know how many people to expect. Even if you can spare just a couple of hours come and join us – you will make a difference!

Hudson would really like to be able to see Wilcox Lake from this spot.
