Huron Waterloo Pathways and The Dexter Cider Mill Sunday, Sept. 30th


Please join HWPI at The Dexter Cider Mill located in beautiful Dexter, sitting perched on top of the Huron River at 3685 Central St., Dexter, MI, and right next to the B2B. Come and enjoy their delicious treats, sip on some of their wood pressed fresh cider made on premise, take a stroll around their 132 year old family owned mill and soak in the view.

We would love for you to experience a perfect Fall afternoon at the Cider Mill. Stop by and say hello to HWPI on Sunday, Sept. 30th, 12-4pm to learn more about the B2B!
