Mishawaka Mayor Dave Wood announced today that the ribbon cutting for the Mishawaka Main Junior High Apartments has been set for 4:00pm on Friday December 7, 2012. This re-dedication commemorates the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of this historically significant building originally constructed in 1910. The City’s general contractor, Ziolkowski Construction of South Bend, will be in attendance as will many of the numerous entities and individuals that have been part of the 7.5 million dollar project.
This Sunday, August 19th, at 7:30pm & 9:00pm Eastern Time, our local PBS affiliate, WNIT, will broadcast a one-hour documentary highlighting the City of Mishawaka as part of their "Our Town" series. This series provides a view into local cities & towns through the eyes of the people who live there.
WNIT, our local public broadcasting station, has approached Mayor Dave Wood with a project called “Our Town”. The project is an hour-long program that will feature Mishawaka. The concept of the program will be a positive look at Mishawaka through the eyes of its citizens.
The year was 1952; Ike was just elected President, Hank Williams and Fats Domino were two of the top recording artists with songs like Jambalya and Goin’ Home. Gene Kelley was Singing in the Rain at the movie theatre. Many of us are too young to remember the year 1952. However, Mishawaka’s wastewater treatment plant began operation on April 18, 1952.
