Community Focus – May 11, 2022

The Telephone of the Wind was set up in Plymouth’s Hines Park to give people a way of sharing a message with a friend or family member that has passed away.  The phone is on the Lake View Trail near Newburgh Lake.  The phone was created by Canton resident Brandi Kloostra to honor her father.  It was based on a similar phone in Japan.  88.1 the Park’s Bailey Wixon spoke with Brandi about the phone and how it’s helped the grief process.
