The "Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper Challenge Grant" by the Association of Realtors
In conjunction with the Michigan Association of Realtors, GPBR is pleased to announce a new grant program that will help residents bring their local improvement projects to reality. Up to $1,000 per project will be awarded to finance projects that promote "placemaking".
What is Placemaking?
Placemaking is the act of enhancing or creating a vibrant public space where people can gather, socialize, people watch, or relax in. "Places" foster a feeling of community and add flavor to a destination. Local notable examples include Campus Martius, and The Village and The Hill shopping districts in Grosse Pointe.

We'd like to thank Marcia Wilk and her crew from Marcia Wilk Estate Sales for another successful estate sale this past weekend. We'd also like to recognize our members who donated their time: Judy Barker, Cheryl Gauss, and Vicky Colwell. One of our newer members, Michelle Agosta from Higbie Maxon Agney, really stepped up and volunteered to work the sale both days. Thanks Michelle!
Everyone's hard work and efforts were most appreciated, and of course, we couldn't have done any of this without the generous donations from our members.
Please mark your calendars, our annual fall Golf Outing will be held on Monday, September 16th at Lochmoor Club in Grosse Pointe Woods. It's not too early to register as a golfer or become a sponsor!

We had a great event last year with record turnout and look forward to doing it again this year!
