Large Crowd Celebrates New MAPS Facilities

Large Crowd Celebrates New MAPS Facilities

From: http://www.montague.k12.mi.us/

On June 12 a large crowd helped dedicate two new MAPS buildings--the Montague Area Childhood Center and the Arland Cederquist Transportation and Maintanance Facility.
The perfect summer afternoon featured Jacquie Wood-trained singers and drummers, the raising of an American flag from the battlefield in Afghanistan, ribbon cutting, remarks from Representative Holly Hughes, URS architects, Triangle Construction and from MAPS leaders.  Author Denise Rowe read and acted out one of her original works.  Families enjoyed cake, building tours and pride in what our community has accomplished.  Click for pictures.
