As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many non-profits, businesses, and residents are under serious financial strain.  The United Way of Washtenaw County (UWWC) decided to start a fund drive to help those in need.  UWWC President/CEO Pam Smith joined WEMU's David Fair for a conversation about the initiative in this week's installment of "Washtenaw United."

On March 15, 2012 Dexter was hit by an F3 Tornado. Immediately after the tornado the community and surrounding communities came together to put the pieces back together. All proceeds from this run will began to pay back those organizations that supported our community.
