Message From the Director: Greetings!

It is with great pleasure that I begin spending my time here in Old Town in an official capacity. My family and I have been active volunteers and I am in love with all of the people, places and things that make Old Town awesome.  It truly is a shining example of what a community can, and should, be!

As I begin my tenure as executive director, I’m excited to meet and greet all of the amazing volunteers, members and business owners around town, in addition to gaining my footing in the office. If we have not yet had the chance to meet, please stop in and say hi or join me at Bloom Coffee Roasters for a nice dark roast.

Contact Vanessa by email at, by phone at 517.485.4283 or stop in to 1232 Turner Street and say hello!

By Vanessa Shafer, OTCA executive director
