Welcome to Eaton Rapids.org
If you have an event you would like to publicize, register here to submit it.
Service clubs are invited to submit news of events, fundraisers, or anything else in support of their mission.
The Arts Council and the Historical Society each has a section to promote their activities.
We are also planning to add a section for local announcements from
- realtors who want to announce open houses in the area,
- employers who are hiring,
- non-profit organizations that are trying to raise money to support their mission,
- community event planners and organizations looking for volunteers, and
- summer activities like camps for school age children, the Dam Festival, or other events planned for this coming summer.
The site will develop in response to community interest and interaction. If there are community information needs not addressed in the site so far, let us know. We are always looking to improve.
Tell Your Story
Historical remembrance plays a major role in the life of this community. Local authors like Jean Kline have chronicled the development of Eaton Rapids starting from the early 1800s.
The Eaton Rapids Historical Society has worked tirelessly to preserve the fabric and architecture of our past. Currently, the Historical Society in collaboration with the Downtown Development Authority is restoring the historic Red Ribbon Hall and making it available for community events and artistic celebration.
History is also the living knowledge of people who share the stories of their lives and the memories of their past with one another. We invite visitors to this site to tell their stories about living in the Eaton Rapids area. Using wikki technology, anyone can create an entry that will begin to build the shared remembrance on the web of our community.
