Two days ago, Dr. William C. Foster, owner of Fries Veterinary Clinic and one of the organizers behind the group known as Greater Durand Area Citizens for Responsible Growth, told Durand Now that the group is "working on getting our paperwork filed with the State and generating our Bylaws."

The group has met twice at the Durand Eagles Aerie #3851 on New Lothrop Road -- directly across the road from the proposed home of a major industrial development dubbed 'Project Tim,' that, to date, is cloaked in secrecy.

Lee Bashant/GoFundMe

A devastating fire on Monday in Caledonia Township destroyed the Bashant family's home and all their belongings and claimed the life of mother, Lee.  Five others escaped.  Lee, 43, was trapped on the home's second floor, according to multiple reports.

Corunna Robotics FridgeBot Team Mentor, Scott Stap, told Durand Now "Lee was amazing and a great friend of both Corunna Robotics teams.  Her kids have been cornerstones of the teams and have been very active during and off season." 

Stap said the family will be facing many issues including special care for the kids that Lee cared for daily.
