MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET PLAYING AT THE ENCORE

This is the stuff of legends!!! The story of how Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash recorded an impromptu Jam session together back in 1956. Come be a fly on the wall and watch a forgotten piece of musical history as The Encore Musical Theater is transformed into the iconic Sun Record Studios. It was a simple set for us to build but we were sure excited to help make this amazing show happen. Playing February 1-25 click The Encore link to get your tickets now!

Charity Hockey Games

The Arctic Coliseum in Chelsea, MI played host to a trio of charity hockey games featuring the Masters 40 and over hockey league, Platinum 50 and over hockey league, Ann Arbor Rockets, and the MACRHL women's hockey league. Game one had Dexter Builders Vs Dexter Block of the Platinum 50 and over hockey league. After 3 periods Dexter Block had just enough to edge Dexter Builders in the hard fought but fun Charity game.

DEXTER BUILDERS HOLIDAY PARTY 2017

Every year we like to have a little get together to celebrate with friends and our Dexter Builders Family. We talk about the great year we had and what exciting events the new year might bring. This year it only seems fitting that we switched venues to a remodeled barn that is part of Misty Farm. You may have passed it while driving down Scio Church Rd and thought wow that place looks amazing! I'm here to tell you that the exterior doesn't do justice to the interior or the friendly staff that helped us with our holiday party. As Always the cherry on top of this holiday sundae was the food. Our feast was catered by Dexter Riverview Café and I think I'm still full. Next time you're in Dexter between 7am-3pm you would be mistaken if ...

MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS CAPTURES THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

Around this time every year we participate in a great program that embodies the spirit of giving during the holiday season. The Magic of Christmas Foundation was founded by Debbie Williams-Hoak and teams up with the Ann Arbor Police Department to make sure kids from around Washtenaw Country have a merry Christmas and have a positive perception of police officers in their community. Not only is it a great way to give back to the community that supports us but its fun! You kind find out more information and how you can help by clicking on the link above or listen every morning Mon - Fri 6-10am on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA, the official voice of Michigan sports.

Take a look at this years Holiday Fun!!!
