East Jordan is Bursting with New Projects

By Mary H. Faculak, East Jordan Area Chamber of Commerce

If you haven’t been to East Jordan before or haven’t visited the community lately, you need to put us on your “must do” list for this year! Our community is bursting with so many “completed” major projects. The renovation and addition of the universal kayak launch at Sportsman’s Park has been finished this spring and is ready for use. Launch your kayak onto the wild and scenic Jordan River to experience nature at its finest. The Jordan Art Walk, now in its fourth year, will be welcoming six new sculptures to the poplar art walk. The Art Walk Committee will be conducting a Ribbon Cutting and Dedication of the sculptures on Wednesday, June 12th at 10:00 AM starting in Memorial Park. The artists will cut a ribbon at their sculpture with their sculpture sponsor(s). Several of the current and incoming sculptures are for sale. Be sure to check the website at jordanartwalk.org for complete information on the artists, sculptures and prices.

The magnificent Don and Eileen Klein Trail and Boardwalk over the Jordan River will officially be dedicated at a special ceremony and Ribbon Cutting on Saturday, June 8th at 10:00 AM. The amazing universally accessible boardwalk will allow everyone to get out into “nature” and onto the Jordan River. Experience the spectacular flora and fauna that the Jordan River Watershed offers. A photographer’s and bird watchers paradise await you year-round! The Klein Trail is accessible at the Friends of the Jordan Watershed Building and Property or from the Rogers Family Homestead Nature Preserve parking lot. While in East Jordan, don’t miss stopping at the newly landscaped and renewed Grand Army Republic Park on Main Street. Home to the one-of-its-kind Jordan Honor Star sculpture. The park has been completely renovated with a new pavilion, flag display, GAR Memorial and refurbished gazebo. Made possible by the Rebec-Hosler Sweet American Legion Post #227, the East Jordan Shoe Club, East Jordan High School Welding Class Students and many community members and organizations. The student members of the East Jordan Shoe Club also interviewed local veterans, wrote and published a book “Stories of Service – in their own words” which is now for sale at several locations in East Jordan including the Chamber of Commerce Office for $25.00. The students will be completing their once-in-a-lifetime project by visiting Gettysburg in Mid-June.

Looking forward to seeing you in East Jordan! We have so much to showcase! Don’t forget to enjoy shopping, dining and visiting our many cultural and recreational amenities!
