COOPERSVILLE, MI – The Coopersville Area Historical Society (CAHS) is pleased to announce the launching of their new website www.coopersvillehistory.org.
The CAHS website was created for and about the Coopersville community and its history. They hope you enjoy the photos, stories, audio podcasts, and even the C’ville Sleuth mystery photo and puzzle. Be sure to visit the site often to see what new items are posted there.
Early in 2021, the Coopersville Area Historical Society formed a committee to pursue development of a website. Final approval was given in May of that year to start fundraising efforts for the development of a site.
The initial investment was made possible by the generosity of the following:
- Robert (Dennis) and Diane Barrett
- Shirley Cunningham
- Randy and Cindy Laug
- Main Street Wealth
- Audrey Snow
- Ken and Sandy Stroven
- LeaAnn Tibbe
- Bob and Judy Van Dongen
- Ron and Beth Veldman
The Website Committee for coopersvillehistory.org includes:
- Dennis Barrett
- Cindy Laug
- Connie McKenney
- LeaAnn Tibbe
- Judy VanDongen – ex-officio
CAHS will also be sponsoring a Community Photo Sharing event on Saturday, January 15, from 11:00am-1:00pm at the Coopersville Area District Library. Visitors are invited to visit the library and bring their photo albums and the team will digitally scan them on site.
