Remember Mill Creek Days?

Dawn Swafford
Remember Mill Creek Days?  Many local residents remember the parade along West River Road and the festivities and booths at Dwight Lydell Park.  The event was sponsored by the Comstock Park Jaycees and the entire community participated in one form or another.  Mill Creek Days stopped over a decade ago and the Jaycee organization disbanded.

Wouldn't it be nice if a community event of that nature was revived in the Alpine Township/Comstock Park community?  Dawn Swafford happens to think so.  Dawn is a long time resident of Alpine Township and is employed at Edward Jones.  Both her and Financial Advisor Dana Quick would love to once again see a community celebration celebrated in the Comstock Park area and they are taking steps to make it happen.

On Tuesday they met with leaders from Comstock Park and Kenowa Hills Schools, Alpine Township Officials, leaders from Comstock Park Service Organizations, and representatives from the business community to explore options.  Based on the enthusiasm expressed by everyone, we will be hearing more from this group.  Anyone with ideas or suggestions is encouraged to contact Dawn at (616) 784-9622
