(Executive Committee will meet at 10:00 a.m.)
Witch’s Hat Depot and Historic Village
300 Dorothy Street, South Lyon MI 48178
The Witch’s Hat Depot and Historic Village is just off Lafayette Street (Pontiac Trail) in South Lyon. MARP will meet in the Freight House. Jennifer Redfern, a member of the Board of Directors of the South Lyon Area Historical Society will be on hand to tell us about the railroad history of South Lyon and the Witch’s Hat Depot & Museum, followed by a tour of the museum, caboose and other buildings as time permits. Our usual “no-host” lunch will follow at the historic South Lyon Hotel, where railroad passengers dined in days gone by.
Remember that all are welcome and encouraged to attend the Executive Committee meeting that begins promptly at 10:00 am. The general membership meeting will convene at 11:00 am with a short report on the new Ann Arbor Transportation Center by Eli Cooper, Ann Arbor Transportation Authority. Other agenda items include: recent FRA funding to continue development of the Chicago-Detroit high-speed corridor; a report on talks with Indian Trails concerning through-way connections; and the recent damage suffered by the Durand station when the sprinkler system sprung a serious break.
