One February 16, 2014 at 12:34 am, the building at 5988 First Street in Twin lake Michigan, Unity of Faith Community Church collapsed under the weight of the snow. It was donated to us in September of 2009 and before that served as the Twin Lake Civic Association. A little history going back is the building was built in 1923 as the Blue Moon Dance Hall.

I now find myself in the position of removing the debris. Before that, I will erect a chicken wire fence and signs warning weirdos away.

My question ... is there anyone out there who would like to help our little church pull apart and demolish what is left of that once very nice building?

Looks like it happened in an area that no one cares about. As a Muskegonite that lives in Muskegon itself, I can safely say that inner Muskegon needs more help than our outer suburbs. When we finish fixing up our downtown, then maybe, just maybe, we can help the other communities, but don't get your hopes up. The Muskegon Metro are is the most important part of the county, and has the largest population, more people care about this region that whatever small Mayberry town you live in. Sorry that's the truth.

Honestly, what makes this very ... funny actually ... is that I've been called to serve in the Detroit area, not THAT is a disfunctional region if ever there was. I lived in Muskegon for about 5 years, then acquired that building.

I think what I find very sad is that you're right ... no one gives a tinkers damn about anyone other than themselves. It's very sad. Especially when those same people who should care are the ones that call me for things they need and ... I give it to them. Perhaps I should stop doing that *lol*.

No ... not gonna happen. All I can do is hope for the best and ... prepare for the worse.

further more that's why good people are leaving your precious gem of inner city Muskegon and moving to the townships of Muskegon! because of the crime!
