On November 1st, The ChadTough Foundation officially opened an office. A real office. No longer will our staff meetings be held around the Carrs’ kitchen table.

(Although I’m sure we’ll still be at Relish and Brewed Awakenings on a regular basis! Yum!)

Has Maple Road looked a little cleaner to you?

If so, thank a friendly local Rotarian.

The Rotary Club of Saline "adopted" a two-mile stretch of Maple Road, north of Textile, from the Washtenaw County Road Commission.

The spring cleanup netted 37 bags of waste. Since then, volunteers have collected another 11 bags of trash.
