McCracken Family Fund

Bill and Louise McCracken grew up in Mt. Pleasant. Their families first came to this area in the 1870s. The Bambers and the Regans worked hard to develop their farms. Over the years, family members consisted of teachers, police officers, military and business owners, all sharing a strong sense of commitment and dedication to the community. Bill himself served as the Mt. Pleasant Building Official and chief code enforcer for 32 years. Retired he still feels a loyalty to the city and a responsibility to its people. Bill and Louise are extremely proud of their families' work ethic and strong sense of community.They are pleased to have been raised in a town that is someplace special.

To keep Mt. Pleasant a successful and welcoming community, everyone needs to be strong. The Isabella Community Soup Kitchen gives families the help and support they need during hard times. The Soup Kitchen provides a safe and comfortable setting offering a warm meal in a social atmosphere. By establishing this designated fund, the McCracken family hopes it will serve as a perpetual gift helping the Soup Kitchen to continue its honorable mission.
