Joe Mechon Park ribbon-cutting
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Hematite Township – Joe Mechon Memorial Park Improvements Project was held on July 3 at the Township Park located at the intersection of Park City Road and Maple Street in Amasa. The project was funded by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund, and John Pepin of the DNR spoke on its behalf. On hand for the ribbon-cutting were representatives from Carey Contracting, Penchura (playground), Hematite Township Board and Recreation Committee and Wildlife Unlimited of Iron County (which donated the fishing pier).
