Note to our GLHS alumni………
 
Good afternoon everyone,
 
With snow blowing again this morning, I wanted to share an update on what is happening in town.
 
MLive's latest business feature highlights our own Judy Wollett's floral business, Designs by Judy. Judy provides a valuable service for our community and we are proud of her accomplishments.

Work continues as the Federated Church has returned to having services in the church after months of holding services in the Methodist Church's Fellowship Hall.
 
The "Dollar General" store (http://www.dollargeneral.com/) being built on N. Union Street has its exterior coming to completion. 
 
Across the road the Michigan Military Heritage Museum has been drawing interest from across the nation as local stories are being picked up by publications, such as the Washington Post. This museum is operated by the Grass Lake Historical Connections group that also operates the Coe House Museum. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mimilitaryheritagemuseum/?hc_ref=PAGES_TIMELINE
 
Barney's Diner located downtown is gaining a reputation for good, scratch-cooked food that leaves you satisfied. Barney's Diner is owned and operated by GLHS graduates Dan and Jake Pratt. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/barneysfamilydiner/
 
April Scott Photography (http://www.aprilscottphoto.com/) has renovated a space about the pharmacy that has allowed April to expand her business. 
 
The Roaming Goat Coffee Shop located in back of the old hotel on S. Lake Street is gaining patronage and has become a favorite meeting place that includes entertainment. They are consistently doing benefits for Grass Lake-area non-profits. Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/drinkroaminggoat/
 
Progress continues on the Lost Railway Museum (http://www.lostrailwaymuseum.org/) in the former Grass Lake Implement Company building. Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/LostRailwayMuseum/
 
Grass Lake graduate Bethany Stone is running a successful business, the Painted Owl (http://www.thepaintedowl89.com/).  Bethany facilitates groups of people who come in to do various painting projects. The Painted Owl is located in the back of the former Grass Lake Automotive building. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thepaintedowl89/.
 
In the front of the former Grass Lake Automotive building Bethany's brother, Brad, owns and operates Stone's One Stop Auto Shop working on repairing vehicles. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Stones-1-Stop-Auto-Shop-359879937524300/
 
The Grass Lake School of Music has been opened by Kyle and Terri Neely of Grass Lake. They are offering both vocal and instrumental lessons and are located on Brown Street near the car wash. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GrassLakeSchoolofMusic/
GLHS graduate Duane Stoker has moved his accounting business to offices located next to the Post Office. http://thegrasslaketimes.com/2017/01/29/in-the-spotlight-stoker-tax-accounting-llc/
 
The Brass Stag Pub has opened in the former Village Inn location and is serving a variety of foods and beverages. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brassstagpub/
 
Ryan's Restaurant is now for sale if you might be interested in coming back to get into the dining business.
 
All of these businesses complement nicely with all of our established businesses in and around Grass Lake who feel motivated to contribute to the positive fabric of our community. I appreciate all they do. I wish I could name them all here, but you can find a directory of businesses at the Grass Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce website at www.grasslakechamber.org(Pictured is our Chamber Board members at the Roaming Goat.)
 
Our local merchants have so much to offer, many of them with direct ties to Grass Lake Schools. It is easy to buy local and get most everything you need. If you aren't living in or around Grass Lake and you are planning a visit, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the advancements of opportunities that are becoming more apparent in our community. Just a few resources that are available include the pharmacy, barber shop, hair salon, lawyer, doctors, restaurants, chiropractor, funeral home. landscaping, banking, computer services, grocery store, hardware, community resale store, gas stations, a car dealership, a veterinarian, and much more.
 
Have a great weekend, Doug
