St. Michael Branch Delays Grand Opening due to Winter Storm
The Grand Opening set for Saturday, Dec. 11 for the St. Michael Library, Senior Center and City Hall had to be cancelled due to hazardous driving conditions. Ten plus inches of snowfall and dropping temperatures paired along with increasing winds and decreasing visibility caused the city administrators to make the painful decision to cancel the day's festivities and hopefully reschedule them for a day in the near future.
"We were so disappointed for all the patrons and all the volunteers who had worked for well over a year in planning the day including beautiful invitations and programs for the day," said branch manager, Marla Scherber. "We couldn't take the chance. Hopefully we'll be able to get the same groups to participate in a future grand opening event."
To date, no future date has been set, but the city along with the senior center and the library will be collaborating on rescheduling something soon.
