Warmer than normal temperatures prevailed during the month of November, as construction crews began shaping the ground and digging trenches to install storm water drains for the new St. Louis Guanella Village project. The first phase of the project is to create the infrastructure of the Village by building roads, and providing water and sewer lines to accommodate what is hoped to be a state of the art facility for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Michigan. Once this phase of the project is complete, workers can begin building the foundations of the four new Children’s Homes that will provide for the first residential units in the Village. Even as of the last week of November, temperatures were hovering in the 50-60 degree (Fahrenheit) range during the day, compared to most years when there is already snow on the ground by now. Needless to say, the residents of St. Louis Center enjoyed watching the giant machines working outside of their windows during these warm fall days.
