From the President
2004 was a busy time at the Grosse
Pointe Historical Society. Hundreds
of people from school children to
seniors attended events, did research at the
Resource Center, came to lectures, and partici-
pated in workshops. They learned about our
history, met friends with common interests,
and just plain had fun. It was a great year!
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you
these activities are funded mainly through pri-
vate contributions from individuals and foun-
dations. We are a local organization supported
mostly by local people who value the enrich-
ment of this community. Your support of the
Annual Appeal is essential to our operation.
Please help us preserve the history of our
remarkable community. A successful Annual
Appeal will ensure that we can continue creat-
ing programs and events that celebrate and
commemorate our treasured past. To con-
tribute, please call 884-7010.
