This area comes alive each May through September as tourists from all over the world come to visit. Then in October, the village settles in for colder weather and picturesque fall and winter scenery. We are a non-commercial village. That means we don’t have shops or stores, but directly outside the village territory, there are lots of shops like that. Because of that, one of our Board of Trustee members mentioned that he felt our community was the “Pearl of Southwest Michigan” and we held on to that because we agreed with the statement. Welcome to our world, and thank you for taking a good look at our village.

In our efforts to understand what you want for the village in terms of park improvements and a street parking ordinance, we have developed a 2-part, 3 question survey that we hope you will fill out so we have a good representation of our village and what it is they do, or do not, want. To take the survey, please click here: Survey Monkey

WE NEED YOUR HELP! We have joined the Little Free Library network and need to build a library (about 24″x 24″x 16″) that sits on a pole and will be placed on the Village Hall Property. We will pay for the lumber, but we need someone to build it for us. AND, we are looking to get this done quite fast. If you can build this little library for us, we would greatly appreciate it. Please call the Village Clerk, Debra, at 861-0718. Thank you! The Little Free Library is an small, enclosed library where people can stop by and take a book, while adding a book. No charge. It is to do our part for literacy and to give adults and children something to do (READ) in place of video games and television.

We have often reported that your Village Officers and Trustees continue to find new and improved in ways to bring benefit to our residents. We are now happy to report that in mid-February we will be able to take credit cards at the Village Office which can be used to pay for fees, fines and taxes. We will be able to take debit cards, Mastercard, VISA, Discover and American Express.

Be sure and check out the Events Page to learn about what is going to be happening in the Village this summer!
