Washington Township Community Building


The Washington Township Community Building with its distinct architectural features was dedicated in 1929 and is still the centerpiece of downtown Beecher. The 2-story building located at 673 Penfield Street in Beecher has been updated to meet ADA requirements and is used on a regular basis for meetings, plays, assemblies and many other local activities.

The building is governed by a Board of Managers who are elected every four years at the Consolidated Elections. The Board of Managers are solely responsible for maintaining the building and ensure the building is being used as specified by township code.

Current Board of Managers: Stacy Mazurek, Teresa Peterson and Dan Waterman

Anyone wishing to use the building must submit an application to the Building Manager and adhere to the policies and guidelines as set forth by the Board of Managers. Cleaning fees may be imposed as a condition of usage for personal functions.
