This week’s shout outs were written by Jeremy Cady, Huron Township Clerk:
The Huron Township Historical Commission is doing fantastic work for the residents of the Township. They are a volunteer group, appointed by the Township Board of Trustees. They receive no pay or benefits.They dedicated upwards of 20+ hours each a week researching the Township history, acquiring artifacts, putting together events, displaying various exhibits and maintaining two pieces of historical property with buildings.
The Huron Township Parks and Recreation Commission, like Historical are a volunteer group as well, dedicating 20+ hours a week each. They are responsible for maintaining the Township parks and hosting various events for the children of our Township. The have worked extremely hard to re-beautify Lajko and Berlin Parks.
These groups work together and are responsible for bringing the Halloween and Christmas events to downtown New Boston. They provided a horse drawn carriage ride for Christmas, a Christmas tree lighting ceremony, a community “trunk-or-treat” event and several others. These groups, because of the dedication of the members who comprise them have sacrificed so much of their personal time to our community and are directly responsible for creating events in our community to allow our residents to enjoy their Township and not have to travel elsewhere to participate in family events.
They are constantly coming up with different ideas to bring the community together. Both groups are building great relationships with other community and private organizations to enhance the quality of family events. Without these individuals in these Commissions, our Township would not be the family friendly place that it is. I am very proud to know and work with these outstanding residents of Huron Township.
The Commission are comprised of the following individuals.
Candace Myshock Chairperson
Louis Wuesthoff Auditor
Stacey Reynolds Curator
