MASON—An April visit by Kosovo citizens developed new links with businesses around Michigan. During the weeklong visit, Mason Mayor Leon Clark took the citizens to numerous cities in Michigan to demonstrate the role of business, government, agriculture and education in community life. These included the Ingham County and Lansing courthouses, the Michigan Capitol, farms, Michigan State University and several businesses in the greater Lansing area. The trip’s purpose, according to Clark, was to provide Kosovans with contacts and business opportunities while giving tours of Mason and surrounding areas. Clark facilitated business by introducing the Kosovoans to Thielenhaus Microfinish, a Novi-based company that does business in numerous European countries.
