June 2019


Since before we opened our doors in November of 2010 we've had a special relationship with the City of Walker Police Department.  They performed security assessments prior to our opening, helped us manage some of our larger public events, played a significant role in the development of our emergency response plan, and visit us regularly during our open-to-the-public hours.  If you have any doubt about how their visits are received, just check out the photo above!

Our sincere thanks to the Walker PD for their ongoing support and encouragement!
Summer Schedule Begins Wednesday, June 12
      
As you may know, we switch our open-to-the-public hours during the summer months to accommodate as many of our visitors as possible.  With summer weekends being a precious commodity here in Michigan, we've found that moving our hours to weeknights makes us available to more kids during the summer.

We'll change to our summer hours on Wednesday, June 12.  During the summer months, we're open to the public as follows:

* Wednesday evenings from 6pm-9pm for students entering 7th-10th grades in the fall.

* Thursday evenings from 6pm-9pm for students entering 5th & 6th grades in the fall.

As with any question you might have, please email us at info@3mp.org if you need further information!



Andy Egan Company 100K Community Giveaway

To celebrate turning 100 years old, the Andy J. Egan Company is giving away $100,000 to area non-profits who have helped to build the community they've been a part of for the last 100 years.

Each month, from February to November of 2019, the Egan Company will be selecting a different West Michigan non-profit to receive a $10,000 donation.  

We at 3 Mile Project are thrilled to have been chosen as the recipient of $10,000 for the month of May!  This donation will play a critical role in our effort to keep our admission fees affordable for all West Michigan young people.  Thank you to the Andy J. Egan Company for their generosity and support of 3 Mile Project, as well as other worthy non-profits throughout West Michigan!

Our annual Walker Community School Supply Event will take place on the evening of Tuesday, August 6.  Our goal is to distribute at least 500 free backpacks filled with school supplies.  Plus, we open our doors for families to enjoy a free hot dog meal, carnival games, and all the activities we offer here at 3MP!
