New to the Rivers Edge Gift Shop are Members Only Discount Saturdays. On the last Saturday of the month, members of Brush Creek Mill, who show their up-to-date, or lifetime, membership card will be given 10% off all purchases.

We have decided that we have lost so many friends due to age, illness or moving that we want a path of remembrance in the Dennis Walker Memorial Garden.  So, for 2021 only, we are selling our bricks for $40 instead of the usual $50.  If you would like a brick remembering someone, contact Jane in the Office at 989-742-2527

15th Anniversary
