The long winter over, more than 500 Washtenaw Community College students, faculty and staff lined up last month for an old-fashion ice cream social/voter registration event.

In addition to enjoying each other’s company and ice cream provided by Fabulous Foods, participants learned more about the upcoming Aug. 2 millage election.

WCC is requesting renewal and restoration of a millage that voters approved in 2004. If Washtenaw County voters approve in August, the millage renewal would raise about $12.5 million for operating expenses at the college.

Fifty-three people registered to vote – that’s one registration for every 2.5 minutes of the event –and many agreed to tell 10 friends about the ballot measure.
