Two free shuttle busses will be available during the day, with parking located at J & R contracting, 1300 Michigan Ave. The Waterville United Methodist Church (102 N. Fifth St.) will also be serving lunch that day from 11:00-1:00 for donation only, and as they are a stop on the tour, a perfect place to rest and rejuvenate!
In addition the AW Area Arts Commission is hosting their Art and About 2019 event that day, featuring local artists painting outside around town and a scavenger hunt in the downtown area. For more information, visit www.awaac.org.
