The Arthur T. Bowley Friendship Bridge

A special presentation opened the Festival. The pedestrian bridge in Saline's Millpond Park was dedicated as the Arthur T. Bowley Friendship Bridge. The bridge recognizes the pivotal role Arthur and Dilys Bowley have played in cementing the special friendship enjoyed by these two communities. The dedication was consummated when Mayors Bufton and Little poured bottles of Michigan and Welsh water through a sieve held by Councilor Bowley into the Saline River flowing below.
