Our families have been  a part of the Durand community for GENERATIONS.  We chose to become members of DARTS to show our support for the local businesses.  It is rewarding to be members of a group that provides many activities throughout the year.  These activities draw families into our town which in turn allows these visitors to see the many local, and unique establishments in Durand, the Village of Volunteers.
