Crosshill open house

Crosshill Community Preschool hosts a 40th anniversary open house, Saturday, May 7, from 12-4 p.m in the Davisburg United Methodist Church, 803 Broadway.
Crosshill was founded in the 1976 school year a group of pastors from Davisburg United Methodist and Baptist churches, residents, and teachers from Davisburg Elementary School.
Davisburg United Methodist Church, under the leadership of Rev. Melvin Leach, supported the formation of a preschool, which had a play-based environment and provided Christian values in a cooperative setting with parent volunteers and classroom assistants.
The program grew with the addition of the Gospel Center by the church, providing more classrooms and a gymnasium. At one time the program served about 120 students and had seven staff members.
The preschool participated in St. Jude Children’s Hospital Bikathons for many years, donating proceeds in memory of Stephen Mellado, a student who passed away from brain cancer.
The open house will include entertainment, refreshments, cake and goodies, old photos to reminisce over, and other activities. Call 248-634-1064 for more information.
