Corunna Historical Village

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Friends of the Corunna Historical Village of Shiawassee County, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me. The Corunna Historical Village is in desperate need of funds for multiple restoration and maintenance projects to preserve this treasured gem in our very own backyard.  The village is currently maintained by a handful of volunteers, mainly older senior citizens, and is a non-profit that operates completely separate from the city of Corunna.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the village lost the majority of its small, but essential donation opportunities such as:  school field trips, private tours, the 4th of July open houses, and weddings in the historic church.   The village has many needs, but the most pressing are listed below:

- Special rounded half-gutters for the Webster-Davis house ($2500 estimated cost) as water is destroying the wooden exterior.

- Gould House: boards/siding desperately need to be replaced to preserve the beautiful home with new paint (estimated cost between $5,000-$10,000)

- Many of the buildings in the village need to be power washed and repainted 
($1,000 estimated cost with volunteers painting)

-Church: a 5'x5' area of cement needs to be lifted or replaced to ensure safety ($1,000 estimated cost)

-Lawn care items:  we currently have one riding mower and one string trimmer for approximately 6 acres (volunteers mow) which can take up to 7 hours per week, plus gardening beautification.

*How many of us have visited the village for the amazing Christmas decorations as a tradition? How many have toured the historical buildings during the famous 4th of July celebration in McCurdy Park?  How many of us had our pictures taken in this amazing place? How many people know someone that held their wedding on-site?  We have such an amazing treasure right here in Corunna, and we desperately need your help to keep this park open for everyone to enjoy.  Donations are tax-deductable and I thank you very much for your generosity.  48214524_1590090527526742_r.jpeg48214524_1590090574141465_r.jpeg48214524_1590090596783025_r.jpeg48214524_1590090609583522_r.jpeg48214524_1590090623190377_r.jpeg48214524_159009063724958_r.jpeg48214524_1590090651469765_r.jpeg48214524_1590090666168838_r.jpeg48214524_1590090680703107_r.jpeg48214524_1590090696767418_r.jpeg48214524_1590090712309834_r.jpeg48214524_1590090729387609_r.jpeg48214524_1590090750936704_r.jpeg48214524_1590090780528128_r.jpeg
