Letter from the Presidents
On December 14, 2005, we lost yet another valuable
member of the Society’s board. Adele Huebner, who had
served on our board for over five years, was a lifelong
resident of the community and an enthusiastic student
of its history. Her passion for Grosse Pointe history will
be missed.
That spirit and passion, however, is evident in the
supporters of our Society, who donated more than
$26,000 to the 2005 Annual Appeal, making it the most
successful campaign in our history. A heartfelt thank-you
to each of our donors, and to our Vice President for
Development, Stuart Grigg, who created the appeal.
2005 also saw the loss of still more significant
community structures on Lake Shore Road. After a long
cooperative struggle to put together a plan to move 60
Lake Shore Road, a home built in 1903 for Dr. Edwin
Lodge, the home was demolished along with the adjoin-
ing house to make room for a new condo development.
Mike Farley, honorary trustee, and several others are to
be commended for attempting to save this historic shin-
gle style mansion.
Meanwhile, the Crescent Sail Yacht Club membership, in
a very close vote, followed through with a plan to remove
the largest remaining boathouse in the community–a
boathouse that was designed almost 100 years ago by
Albert Kahn for Henry B. Joy of Packard Motor Car
Company. The demolition will allow the club to add less
than a dozen additional boat slips on the site.
Our Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 9 at
7:30 p.m. in the Grosse Pointe Farms Community
Building. We hope you will be able to attend.
