General Guide – 22nd Issue – January 2017 – The History Edition

Albion and Marshall have both changed a lot in the past few decades. Our communities are now closer than ever due to students from both communities attending Marshall Public Schools, and other connections. (See link at top.) Albion’s downtown is being transformed by the new Ludington Center, the new Courtyard by Marriott Hotel being built, and the Bohm II Theatre that will open this year.

Where we once had an electric interurban train connecting our cities, now it’s the Albion-Marshall Connector bus. Another bridge beginning this year is the Resilient Communities Project, to strengthen the oneness of our people. Finally, come to the Bohm Theatre, enjoy a classic matinee film at 10 a.m. on Fridays. Can’t beat retro films at retro rates!

The VISTAs want to hear from you! They will be at local stores and organizations to gather your input.
You can spot them by the “A” on their shirts and connect with them on Facebook @ BuildAlbionVISTA

We will be posting links and more information about each of these topics here early in 2017.
