Without volunteers like the great Mayor David W. Hanselman (pictured), the Center Line community would not be where it is today!  Mayor Hanselman, who sadly passed away in the Summer of 2015, worked tirelessly to build a strong, healthy community through his many efforts with community based organizations, and his commitment to the City of Center Line as a whole.    An example of Mayor Hanselman’s dedication is the beautiful, original 1926 Center Line Fire Department LaFrance Fire Engine.  That Fire Engine is now our Center Line Independence Festival mascot, it represents the volunteerism of Mayor Hanselman. Because of him and many volunteers, Center Line has had one of the areas best fireworks display, and now the areas best three day festival.


The Center Line Independence Festival needs volunteers and donations to help us make our annual celebration a great event for all!  If you would like to volunteer for this event, please call Janice Pockrandt at 586-757-6800, or email her at jpockrandt@centerline.gov.  As a volunteer you will receive a free wrist band for the carnival, an event t-shirt, and be well fed.  (You must commit 2 hours of your time to receive incentives)
