HOMTV Golden Tape Awards & Intern Appreciation
HOMTV
On Thursday, January 24 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, HOMTV will host its annual Golden Tape Awards Ceremony and Intern Appreciation Event at Studio C! to celebrate the commitment and hard work of the 2017 - 2018 HOMTV Interns. Over the years, HOMTV’s Internship Program has been recognized as an established and exemplary hands-on training program to retain and foster talent. For the first time, HOMTV is inviting the community to show their support and celebrate the interns as they showcase their work. Attendees will receive star treatment by walking the red carpet to an “Academy Awards” style ceremony hosted by Wharton Center’s Bob Hoffman as Master of Ceremonies. Guests will enjoy entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and media professional guest speakers. Each year, HOMTV Interns continue to be a valuable asset to the Meridian Township community, volunteering around 14,000 hours as production crew and on-air talent for nearly 90 official Township meetings and over 600 HOMTV programs, as well as producing more than 1,000 stories and PSA’s. Those interested in attending or becoming a sponsor of the ceremony, please contact HOMTV Executive Producer Brandie Yates at yates@meridian.mi.us.

Haslett Beautification Association
Haslett Beautification Association (HBA) will celebrate the completion of a 3 year project June 29th with the formal dedication of the Donald Lillrose Memorial Garden. Donald was a long-time Haslett resident and HBA supporter. A vacant piece of land at the northern border of Meridian Township is now a perennial garden designed by local landscaper Brad Meehle. The original metal sculpture of 3 sailboats was created by Michael Magnotta. The sculpture was supported in part by a grant from the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. HBA thanks Meridian Township for their support and to the community, we hope you enjoy!
