Taking the local history into present day: GVSU professor works to restore, maintain Michigan historic sites
 
About 150 gallons of stain, 20 hammers, 200 dust masks and 600 water bottles are just a few things on Patty Janes’ shopping list. After months of preparation, she is almost ready for the big event.
 
In April, Janes, a hospitality and tourism management professor at Grand Valley State University, won the Pure Michigan Jumpstart competition, receiving $5,000 for her idea, Michigan Cares for Tourism. 
 
The volunteer partnership will work to restore and maintain historic sites in Michigan.
