Major improvements at White Sulphur Springs Ranch

Travelers on Highway 89 at the south end of the Mohawk Valley may have noticed a few changes at the historic ranch site.

On the first of October a major roof repair was completed by Kenny Davis Roofing in Quincy. An encounter with a nest of yellow jackets caused a slight delay, but the weather cooperated and the old Ranch House got buttoned up for winter just in time.

The bath house also marched toward completion when new siding donated by Allura, through Truckee Tahoe lumber, was installed by White Sulphur Springs Ranch volunteers. Project leader Tim Buckhout led the effort and the final paint job was donated by Clio contractor Miles Huggins.

Local businesses have always been key to the improvements made so far in the rehabilitation of the White Sulphur Springs Ranch. Bath House contributors for this most recent phase of construction also include Jeff Miller, Kenny Davis Roofing, Wesley Boyd, Bear Cub Industries and Gumba’s Family Pizza.

The Mohawk Valley Stewardship Council is in its annual fall membership campaign. Much needs to be done to restore the ranch site for use by the community. Membership fees are essential to success. Become a member by contacting Janet Reihsen at 836-2495.

A dedicated group of volunteers has done an amazing job in conducting fundraisers and performing the hard work necessary to put the ranch in order. There is a long road ahead but the MVSC continues to move forward. The volunteer group is large and a great way to meet new friends. It has become the source of a number of personal relationships. Become an MVSC volunteer by contacting Judy Porep-Lullo at 836-0254.
