2006 ACT-NOW Annual Picnic

The 2006 ACT-NOW Annual Picnic and Business meeting was held on 7-17-06 at 6:00 p.m. at the Gerrish Township Hall.

The event was highlighted this year by a well timed appearance of Mother Nature on the Horizon. Although the gathering was initially interrupted by violent thunderstorms, the gathering was a great success. Due to the storms, the Picnic, meeting and demonstration was moved into the Township Hall and the Gerrish Township Fire Hall.

This next year promises to be another good year as all of the same board member positions and GAP representatives will remain the same. The Police Department thanks all of the volunteers and applaud the work that they do for the Community.

The “Citizen of the Year” award was presented to Don Granzine for all of his work an time that he dedicates to both ACT-NOW and our C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team) group. If you see Don, give him a BIG THANK YOU for all he does. We consider him a great partner in our Community.

A few highlight photos are included below.
