GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING AT
DRUMMOND ISLAND TOWNSHIP

  • Our ambulance corp was able to purchase a Zoll Machine which automatically performs chest compressions on cardiac patients.  This purchase was made possible through the generosity of island donors.  

  • Our Veteran's Committee is raising funds for the island Veteran's Memorial by selling banners that pay tribute to Veterans.  The banners will be displayed on poles throughout The island.

  • 10 new golf carts have been ordered for the township golf course.

  • Our newly formed Township Beautification Committee is doing a wonderful job improving island aesthetics. They installed new American Flags on the island for Independence Day and beautiful new  holiday decorations  and evergreen sprays  in December.

 

  • An impressive group of community members is working together to develop a new 5 year recreation plan for the township.

  • The township applied for a state fire equipment grant and was awarded $10,000.

  • Our Island Volunteer Ambulance Corp now has 2 paid on-call EMT's to ensure a quick response time. 

  • DI Homemakers put their time and energy into a July Fundraiser dedicated to raising revenue for dry fire hydrants on the island. This event raised over $50,000!

  • The Board has been working with the state and county to bring cardboard recycling to the island. We have implemented a pilot card board recycling program for island businesses.

  • At the Township Hall, we’ve been working with Chippewa County Community Action Agency to make upgrades to our Township Kitchen and expanded senior lunches to 4 days a week.  In addition, we’ve adopted a new Hall Use Policy to ensure this community building is well taken care of.

  • We've expanded recreational opportunities on the island with the addition of Fling Golf and Pickle Ball at our Township Golf Course.

  • The Board is diversifying our investment of township surplus dollars in order to generate more revenue for the island and to ensure our financial resources are invested wisely.

  • Our ambulance corp and fire department have both established non-profit 501-C3's (ambulance is Cares for DIAC and Fire Department is Friends of Drummond Island Fire & Rescue) to receive donations and give back to the community.​

  • You can now find township information online through our newly created  Facebook and Instagram Pages. Islander, Jeanne May, is doing a wonderful job as our social media manager.

 

  • We have community groups like DI Silent Sports who are working hard to improve and enhance the hiking trails at the Township Park. This group has expanded  the existing trail system and added educational signage.
