Noteworthy at the Mills
Monarch Waystation Tiles
Artist: Trish Early
Installed in the upper level bathrooms, these beautiful tiles take their inspiration from the Monarch Waystation gardens on the grounds. Actual plants from the garden were used by Early to create these 3 dimensional tiles.
Check them out during walk in office hours on Mondays or when attending an event in Mills Hall.
We are thrilled to announce that we have
officially hired our new Executive Director.
Kristin Fleetwood moved to the Benzie area in 2010. A graduate of Grand Valley State University, she had been working in the virtual school system since 2015 supporting elementary students and their families. The Mills has been a part of her life in Benzonia starting from her very first summer when she attended a job fair on the upper level, and
since then she and her family have continued enjoying
many of the programs offered here.
Please join us in welcoming Kristin!
AND THE WINNER IS...

The Mills is thrilled to announce our gardens on the south side of the building have been registered as Monarch Waystations.
Monarch Waystations provide milkweeds, nectar plants, and shelter for monarchs throughout their annual cycle of reproduction and migration. Creating and maintaining a Monarch Waystation contributes to monarch conservation and helps assure the continuation of the monarch migration in North America.
