LOOKING BACK: Mae Stecker
Mae Stecker Park on 24 Mile Road, just east of the entrance to the Municipal Campus, is named for the township clerk who served from 1961-1974. Here she is in December 1970 swearing in the newly elected township officials: from left, Trustee Harvey Hansen, Treasurer Eugene Eilertson, Trustee Raymond Pini and Supervisor Joseph Boardman. Boardman, a retired Brigadier General, served two terms as supervisor. He started the Shelby Township Library during his tenure. Harvey Hansen was elected supervisor after Boardman and served for eight terms.
