Sesquicentennial

​​​​​​

150 logo

2021 marks a significant milestone in the history of the Grass Lake community as we will be celebrating our 150th year, also known as a sesquicentennial.  A group of dedicated community leaders and citizens have volunteered to coordinate activities for the various events that will take place throughout the year.  

The Grass Lake Downtown Development Authority has provided initial funding for Sesquicentennial activities.  Donations to the DDA for financial support to make our 150th year celebration a great success are welcome and can be sent to: 119 North Lake Street, Grass Lake, MI 49240
