Letter from the Presidents
As we reflect back on 2005, we can paraphrase
Dickens: it was the happiest of years…and the sad-
dest. The Society celebrated 60 incredible years of
growth and community involvement. We sponsored a
number of excellent programs, including the new One-
room Schoolhouse, and hosted hundreds of visitors.
Take a look at the front page to see some highlights.
We also lost three of our most ardent supporters, Ruth
and Al Moran and Frank J. Sladen, Jr. We deeply
mourn their passing and gratefully honor all they did
to make the Society what it is today.
We recently discovered that many of you did not
receive the last issue of
the Moorings
due to an error
at the post office. That issue contained stories about
the 60-year history of the Society, the One-room
Schoolhouse program, the 60
th
Anniversary Party,
and others. If you would like to receive a copy, just
call us at (313) 884-7010 and we’ll send another one
out to you.

A Simple Way to Give a Legacy Gift to the Society
