Some may wonder why Heart and Soul is working so hard to collect the stories of the community. What can come from knowing a small detail such as what it is that made someone move here? Well, if you gather enough “small details”, you can learn a lot about the community. Frankenmuth Heart and Soul works to gather the opinions of all residents in the city. This enables us to analyze hopes, wants, and concerns. From gathering a lot of these hopes, wants, and concerns, we can then understand trends which will develop into a future. While something can begin as one detail from someone, it can flourish into a vision for the future of Frankenmuth.
