| Dear Valued Patrons,|
At the end of the night on Wednesday, June 22nd, the South Lyon Hotel suffered a tragic fire. Fortunately, the only three remaining staff members exited the building safely. Unfortunately, the entire upstairs portion of our beloved historic building is lost. The downstairs had no fire, but has sustained severe water damage. We are eternally grateful for all the brave men and women who risked there lives for the South Lyon Hotel. Six departments from neighboring districts assisted our SLFD in handling the devastating blaze.
At this time, we are taking the appropriate steps with the appropriate legal entities to determine the best path for the Hotel's future. Needless to say, one way or another, we will bounce back. Words cannot express our gratitude for the numerous kind words and support that we have received from our amazing community. Several groups and individuals have offered assistance in the way of fundraising for rebuilding the Hotel, as well as for our deserving staff. While we greatly appreciate these efforts, we would like to focus our attention on determining the best path with our insurance matters. At some point in the future, when we feel it is the right time to begin fund raising efforts, we look forward to involving all of our friends and neighbors in our wonderful community.
One of the most unfortunate situations that has come from this is the sudden lack of employment for our fantastic staff. All we can say is this - we'll be back. It is our hope that our "family members" will utilize their talents to satisfy their financial needs during this troubled time. As soon as we are able bring our team back aboard the ship, we will do so. To anyone that may have employment opportunities for our staff, please email to this website so we can forward the information to our team.
Regarding scheduled events for our Oak Room and the like, we obviously will not be able to provide services that we have committed to. Due to the loss of our entire system, we are unable to contact coordinators with scheduled events. For this, we sincerely apologize, and would like to suggest that our sister location, Bakers of Milford, will do their very best to take care of your needs. They can be reached at 248-685-0505.
We encourage you to check in with this website often, as updates will be posted as they become available. Again, words cannot express our appreciation for all of your support. We look forward to joining you in the next South Lyon Hotel chapter.
-The South Lyon Hotel Team
