Vienna BDA Initiates New Memorial Gazebo Project:

It has been a vision for BDA Board Member Gerald Stadler to see a Memorial Gazebo project in Vienna Twp. The idea came from a similar project that was done in Hale 6 years ago where the cost of the Gazebo was paid with memorial donations provided by the community and local businesses.

Construction will begin in the spring of 2016 on the vacant property next to the Vienna Township Hall where the old Township Hall once stood. Plans will include a landscaping design for the first stage of the Memorial Park.  A donation of $25.00 per person for a Memorial, In honor of, or Donated by, can be made to support this project. It is a nice gift idea 🙂   Each name will be displayed on a marker that will be placed next to the Gazebo. A dedication will be celebrated upon completion of the project and the names recognized. Business sponsors welcome, please contact Gerald Stadler at 810-686-0817 or the BDA office at 810-686-3460.

Please make checks payable to:  Vienna BDA   Note: Memorial Gazebo – Send to: Independent Bank – 3500 W. Vienna Rd., Clio, MI  48420.  Application forms (available at the bank) must be turned in with your check.
