Stories of Town and Harbor is happy to announce that we have successfully reached our goal of raising $16,000 through the generosity of community members,  friends and area businesses.  With additional funding made possible through the State of Michigan’s Regional Prosperity Initiative, Networks Northwest will provide a 1-1 match. The funds will support design and layout for interpretative signage placed along public portions of the harbor and within the city.  Projected timeline for sign installation is slated for summer of 2017.
