In 2015, we will remember the 1965 Palm Sunday Tornado that swept through Alpine Township. In preparation for this 50th Year Anniversary please consider sharing photos or information you might have of that fateful day. Leave your name and phone number at the township office: 784-1262 so that one of the members can come to you or make a day for you to come to our office on 7 Mile Road and Baumhoff St. to share information and photos. We can scan any photo or paper and give it right back to you. We can give you a copy on DVD to keep yourself! Thank you. Alpine Township Historical is always looking for items you would like to share, such as photos, which can be scanned and kept digitally. Originals can stay with you. We will give you a digital DVD of any photo scanned. Also, we have a collection of 4 generation photos. As you gather at any time, please remember to take a 4 generation photo and please share it with us. We can reproduce it and return your original.
