Groundbreaking ceremonies for two big MSKTD projects recently – Sweetwater’s new office/warehouse addition and Erin’s House for Grieving Children new home.
Sweetwater broke ground on its 110,000 sf expansion on Wednesday, November 14th. In attendance for the ceremony were Governor Mitch Daniels, Mayor Tom Henry, city/county officials and economic development staff. The new addition, a combination of warehouse/office/conference & training space, brings with it 315 full-time positions. Big thanks to Sweetwater founder and president Chuck Surack on his continuing commitment to the Allen County community.
On Thursday, November 15th, Erin’s House for Grieving Children broke ground on their new home off St. Joe Center Road next to the new YMCA project. With a residential/homey atmosphere, the new 14,500 sf facility will include program rooms, a rec room, a craft room, gathering room, and administrative offices and training room. The site will also include space for a memory garden. Watch for future opportunities to help support the building project.
