Owners Aaron Mohr (Pinckney, MI), Ray Moran (Grosse Pointe Farms), Kyle Eckles (Clarkston), Johannah Scarlett (Farmington Hills), and Robin Watkins, who along with “silent partner” Doug Murphy (Detroit), their CFO, were amazed at the support from local business and civic leaders as they took visitors on a tour of their property’s main buildings, which includes the largest stage in Michigan.
“This visit confirms our belief that the development of this property was the right fit for us,” said Mohr. “We strive to become part of this close-knit community and the support we received from this visit reaffirms that we will be able to develop a strong relationship with the citizens of Clare County.”
Attending the visit was a delegation from the City of Clare, led by City Clerk Diane Lyon, City Manager Ken Hibl, Mayor Pat Humphrey and City Commissioner Karla Swanson. Humphrey presented the group with a key to the city as a token of the city’s appreciation of the new business.
“We hope to begin this partnership with Harmony Hill to continue to develop the area’s commitment to arts and entertainment,” said Humphrey.
Mohr noted that Harmony Hill is willing to assist nonprofits in holding fundraising events, allowing them to have vendor stands at concerts and he hopes that if there are any concerns they are brought to their attention immediately.
Harmony Hill’s restaurant was slated to open in February, but the group is awaiting confirmation of the liquor license transfer.
Further announcements – including the lineup for their kick-off concert event – will be released as the details are finalized.
