Sterling Community Projects

Huddle Soda shop: 

A building with many fond memories that parallel the history of Sterling High School. Located on the corner of S. Calhoun and Jenkins street, adjacent to the location of the high school before it burned, is a building that still stands that alumnus recall having the best sodas, burgers, and good times. This historic building has seen many changes however unfortunately, time is running out. The building is likely to be demolished in June 2013. 

We would like to either rescue it or rebuild something in its place that speaks not just to the history, but also to what the residents of the community want to see in their neighborhood again. The Sterling Alumni Association want their memorabilia in the space, as well as a place to have their meetings, while they and the community have said that it could also become a cafe, market, or something that supports the economic health of Sterling and brings people together. 

Help us by donating to this cause or joining the team in designing its future in tandem with those who lived the history and those who live next to it!
