In honor of the resilience of the Dexter community following its recovery from a tornado that struck neighborhoods last year, the Dexter Relief Fund committee will host an open house on March 15.
The event will take place at LaFontaine Chevrolet from 3 to 7 p.m.
Throughout the evening, residents can fill out applications for tree replanting that will begin in April. Tree samples and site evaluation consultation will be available. In addition, applications will be accepted for lawn and glass remediation problems.
Volunteers can sign up for the replanting process, and teams of people are needed to help with numerous homes in Dexter Village and Dexter Township.
Food will be provided by LaFontaine Chevrolet, and Dexter High School students will lead games for children at the open house.
"So many people were affected, both directly and indirectly, by the storm, that we know it will go down in the collective memory of Dexter," Nancy Paul, director of Faith in Action said. "In spite of the hardship of the people whose homes and lives were so impacted, the lesson so many have learned is that we benefit from and survive because of the support of our friends, family and neighbors, and so it is in this spirit of celebration that everyone is invited to stop by LaFontaine."
