VILLAGE TO HOST "FROM HANDSHAKE TO #HASHTAG"
ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28TH
The Village is in the process of creating a comprehensive plan for the future of our community, but in order to do this properly, there is a need for input from all of our residents. The next generations in Beecher will be buying, banking, dining and drinking in this community. They will be seeking housing, schools, activities, sports, recreation and employment. We want our businesses to be able to attract and retain employees. We want our schools to be able to attract new residents. And we want to plan a community that will appeal to every age group.
Unfortunately, we have been facing challenges when trying to reach out to younger generations for their ideas. So we have decided to bring in a speaker/ consultant who specializes in inter-generational communication to educate and train us.
Since there is extra space available for this training event, we decided to open it up to the community. Please plan to attend our VERY special event coming up November 28 at 7:00pm at Faith Church on Church Road. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILED INFO
