Water, Storm Drain & Street Project Update:

We are in the home stretch and the projects are on schedule to be completed by the end of October. 

As they work to wrap this up, you may experience low water pressure or interruptions in your water service.   If you are in question as to why you are experiencing this, please feel free to contact the Village Office or Sandy Wolniakowski  517 242-5204.

Currently, asphalting is expected to begin the end of next week, October 8, 9 & 10.  If all goes as planned, asphalting will be followed by clean up and it won’t be long before the crews depart.

Every effort continues to make this go smoothly and we sincerely appreciate your patience.  Thanks to the contractors who have worked hard with the Village to make these projects go well and are very conscientious about the job they do.  Although it seems that it’s been a long time that we’ve been torn up, we are confident it will be worth it in the end!

Thank you to the Meijer Foundation for their recent donation 

to the Village of Pewamo!

Donated funds were used to replace fencing in the park.

"The Village of Pewamo welcomes members of MDOT and MDNR who visited on September 3rd.  The purpose of their visit was to do a site visit of the new trail and meet to discuss the complex interagency coordination that was required to make this trail happen.  Unfortunately, the weather made their ride a wet one!  They also stopped to enjoy our Trailhead and had lunch at Kramer's!  A good day in Pewamo!


Pewamo Mural:

The Village of Pewamo was proud to unveil a new addition to Sesquicentennial Park at Block Party 2014.  Due to generous donations received, the Village was able to commission Dan Arens of Westphalia to create a historic mural of the Pewamo Depot.   Included in the mural is a tribute to our namesake, Chief Pewamo.  We are very grateful to Dan and to the numerous benefactors who made this possible. 

Dan Arens has asked that recognition be given to Jenny (Wood) Shangraw for her extensive research, which enabled him to depict Chief Pewamo accurately.  The Village of Pewamo would also like to thank Jenny for her research and creation of the brochure explaining the history of John Blanchard and his relationship with Chief Pewamo.  Copies of this brochure are available at the Village Office.

In light of the additional information gained by Jenny, the Village hopes to create another piece of the picture, by adding a panel to compliment our existing mural which shows young John Blanchard with Chief Pewamo.  We also hope to obtain a plaque which can explain the murals and share the history of how Pewamo was named.  There’s always something to look forward to!

Dan Arens also expressed his pleasure in working with the Village of Pewamo, and wished to congratulate us on our community’s efforts to come together and promote what makes the Village of Pewamo special!  

Originally settled in 1834, the Village of Pewamo was incorporated in 1859, and proudly celebrated its Sesquicentennial in 2009.   Pewamo prides itself as a family friendly community where you can enjoy small town living with big city access.  Pewamo is surrounded by agriculturally rich lands and wooded lots, but is within easy access to the amenities offered by cities such as
Lansing and Grand Rapids.

Recreation opportunities abound for Pewamo with a nine acre village park, the 18 Hole Huckleberry Creek Golf Course only a short distance north of town and the future development of the Fred Meijer CIS Trail, which will allow Pewamo to enjoy the benefits of becoming a “Trail Town”.
As a part of the P-W School District, Pewamo is proud of the educational opportunities they are able to offer.  The Village is home to two elementary schools, one public and one private Catholic school.  St. Joseph Catholic School is a 2nd through 8th grade facility, which is fully accredited. Recently P-W Schools celebrated national recognition when U.S. News & World Report announced top high schools in the nation.  P-W High School was selected as a "Silver Medalist" (in the top 505).  To put this in perspective, P-W was in the top 3% of high schools in the nation.

Pewamo Poem Minimize

I like to live in a little town, where
the trees meet across the street.
Where you wave your hand and say
"Hello" to everyone you meet.
I like to stand for a moment
outside the grocery store.
And listen to the friendly gossip
of the folks that live next door.
For life is interwoven
with the friends we learn to know.
And we hear their joys and sorrows 
as we daily come and go.
I like to live in a little town.
I care no more to roam.
For every house in Pewamo
is more than a house...its home.
