Posted by The Huron Hub | July 19, 2021

Local residents need not travel all the way to Detroit to check out some world famous artwork.

Instead, the Detroit Institute of Arts is bringing it to Huron Township.

The Huron Parks and Recreation Commission applied to the DIA’s Inside|Out program and was awarded the displays for the 2021 year.

The annual program brings high-quality reproductions from the DIA’s collection to outdoor venues in communities throughout the state of Michigan.

Seven full-size, high quality reproductions have been installed throughout the township, encouraging residents to get out and enjoy these many masterpieces in our own community.

The artwork will be on display until November.

The locations are: Township Hall, Berlinn Park, Historical Building, Riverside Park, vacant lot in town, Lajko Park, and the Senior Park.

The Huron-Clinton Metroparks is building a new space-themed playground at Lower Huron Metropark that is worth $1.3 million. 

Construction is expected to begin this summer and wrap up with a grand opening by the end of the year.

“The Metroparks always strive to meet community needs and provide area residents and visitors with first-rate outdoor recreation spaces and activities,” said Metroparks Director Amy McMillan. “We couldn’t be more appreciative of the feedback and ideas received, and are excited to launch this unique play experience to help spark imaginations and serve as a destination playground.”

McMillan said the design is a combination of creativity, accessibility, and offering something that did not already exist in the general vicinity. Planning for the new play space began this past November.

Online surveys and stakeholder conversations were held with numerous individuals and organizations like the Detroit Association of Black Organizations (DABO) and the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. From there, the Woods Creek area within the park was selected due to its visibility from the main park road, abundant parking and general openness.

The playground is one of many efforts that the Metroparks are making to improve recreational opportunities across the system’s 13 unique parks.

Key features include a geometric playscape designed to reflect the solar system and a new Hedra tower slide, believed to be the first of its kind in Michigan. Playground consultant, Penchura, along with Michigan Recreational Construction, Inc., will lead the construction, installation and development to make the vision come to life. 

The new playground is set to break ground in the summer and be completed by the end of 2021. To learn more, view site renderings and stay up to date with project developments, visit www.metroparks.com

A Huron High School graduate born with serious medical conditions is making an impact by giving back to a health care network that helps care for thousands of likewise medical cases every year.

Keirstin Timpko is a 2020 Huron Graduate who has represented Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals her entire life as a miracle child.

Timpko was born with four serious heart defects and had three open heart surgeries and four heart catheterizations.

Now a freshman at University of Toledo, she is part of RockeTHON Executive Board as a co-chair for family relations.

To date she has raised $1150 for Mercy Health – Children’s Hospital in Toledo.

You can donate to her cause by visiting this link.

From her donation page:

My name is Keirstin Timpko and I am the co chair Family Relations for RockeTHON this year. I have been coming to RockeTHON since 2003, I was about 2 years old. I have been a Miracle Child all my life and without Children’s Miracle Network or RockeTHON, I would not be here today. I was born with 4 heart defects and a smaller right leg. I have survived 3 open heart surgeries and 4 heart catherizations. RockeTHON is not just about raising money, it is about giving another child at a chance at life like I have received. My goal is to raise $1000, but I still have to work towards that goal. So if I raise $1000, I will cut off a foot of my hair and donate it so a child can receive a wig from it. I will continue to advocate and strive to do my best while helping Children’s Miracle Network. This is for the kids.

More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital across North America every year.

To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care.

Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns.

Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
