Some students at Hahn Intermediate School spent the afternoon on Nov. 18 creating a picture frame made with stones they collected themselves. The Hahn Fishing and Outdoor Club does monthly activities and this month the group of students got together to create picture frames made from stones collected on a recent nature hike. Shelly Hayden, a Hahn teacher and adviser for the club, said the kids were taking the stones and cementing them to a picture frame, giving the frame sort of a rustic look.

A community center for the Davison area has been discussed by some community service groups over the past year, but efforts to establish the facility are meeting some obstacles. At the Davison Area Parks and Recreation Commission meeting Wednesday, Nov. 15, Chairman Kevin Hammer told the panel the Davison Lions Club would seek a separate structure. He and the Lions were the first group to approach the commission with intentions of building the structure and two other community group have shown interest.

Efforts to create a “playscape” for Davison area youngsters are beginning, with the possibility of the structure becomeing part of the Davison Regional Park. Area resident Becky Holtz first presented the idea for the wood play structure at the October meeting of the Davison Area Parks and Recreation Commission. At the Nov. 15 meeting, Holtz and members of the parks commission committee formed last month said the most suitable site would be in the front of the park, just west of the tennis courts.
