Dear BDA Businesses, Organizations & Friends,

The flowers are planted and we are looking good!  Apparently, we have friendly competition.  Other communities along the highway have taken notice of our beautiful Exit 131 and have made improvements at their exits.  It is said that they have to keep up with what Vienna Township is doing. 😊  That is the best compliment. This year we added summer banners to the mix in the district. So now we have flowers everywhere! We can be proud of our business district. Let’s keep going now that we are on a roll. We appreciate the businesses that are working on enhancements to their properties. Burger King looks great and we understand that Taco Bell and Wendy’s are up next to remodel.

Volunteers: If you would like to volunteer, please contact the BDA office and ask about our projects.  Thank you to: Cheryl Conlee for helping with the flower gardens and John Neelands for taking care of the bird houses and upkeep along the bike path.

We appreciate your Donations: Garnet Morgan, James & Mariam Dickinson, Steve & Joann Novack, Clio Towing – Mike & Najah Haven, Karen Mason, Linda & Ronald Haynes.
