On Saturday, July 28, Don Kurylowicz, owner of Cannonsburg’s Honey Creek Inn, Cannonsburg Bottle and the Grist Mill, invited candidates for Cannon Township office to meet residents and customers outside the Grist Mill. It was also a chance to show off his new smoker, which will offer year-round smoked ribs and chicken, and an entire fresh smoked menu at the Grist Mill. The event was attended by incumbent Supervisor Steve Grimm, Clerk Bonnie Blackledge, Trustee and Treasurer candidate Dick Davies, trustees Deb Diepenhorst and Diane Jones, and trustee candidate Mike Warmbier, as well as many residents and customers.

“I think things like this are important, because we get to hear from residents outside the township offices, and that’s always good,” Grimm said.

“This is a great board, and I am glad to help give the public access to them in an informal setting. This board has been very supportive of the community,” Kurylowicz added.

The event was well attended, noted long-time resident Nick Van Belkum, who said, “Our township board has worked so hard to listen to residents. I just think events like this should happen more often. I’m glad so many people came out to talk to them.”
