On Saturday, May 4, Lyndon Township hosted what may prove to be the first annual “Fix the Dang Gravel Roads” event at the township hall. Residents who attended had the opportunity to speak with the Washtenaw County Road Commission’s managing director Matt McDonell, director of operations Adam Lape, communications manager Tiffany Oliphant, as well as members of the road crew. On hand to address questions about area roadways were Barb Fuller, chair of the Board of County Road Commissioners, and Commissioner Jeff Smrz, who is a Lyndon Township resident. Everyone had the chance to climb aboard one of WCRC’s graders and a signal truck, too.

Attendees also enjoyed the opportunity to get a close look at Chelsea Area Fire Authority’s newest engine, Chelsea District Library’s Mobee bookmobile, and the new minivan operated by WAVE. Representatives of the Border to Border Trail and Washtenaw County Parks and Rec provided trail information at the trailhead adjacent to the township hall. Keegan Rodgers, of Lakehouse Bakery, provided a more than generous supply of his delicious chocolate chip cookies, and Dave Marsh served up his “Awesome Dogs.”

Two of Lyndon’s government representatives joined the event as well: the hardest-working US Representative in Congress, Debbie Dingell, and State Representative Jennifer Conlin.

The event was a great opportunity for area residents to make a full range of connections, from local all the way up to US government, have a little fun, and enjoy some great food as well.
