Last March, a large portion of the area, including the village, lost power for more than day (some up to five days) due to a wind storm. Some township residents, trapped at their homes by fallen trees without power, called the Community Resource Center for help. This led to the question, “what emergency preparedness plans are in place for our community?”

One month from now, the Community Resource Center will resume their non-profit round table gatherings, put on hold this spring and summer in support of the Manchester Sesquicentennial planning meetings. Mark your calendars and make sure the groups, churches and clubs you belong to have a representative attending on Tuesday, September 19 at 7 pm in the Village Room, located at 912 City Road (lower level of the library).

In addition to hearing from a spokesperson from the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department who will discuss Manchester’s Emergency Preparedness plan, every group will be able to talk about its upcoming activities. And, as at every past meeting, groups will be able to find out how they can work together and support each other to continue working toward making Manchester magnificent.
