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 id="bd" class="narrow fs3",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.
To find out more about this, including applications and deadlines, please see this helpful PDF.
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!

Yesterday, volunteers met at the Board Office to help pack the Easter Baskets and drop them off at local schools. Special thanks to Sue Lieder from John Adams Mortgage, and Ruth Ellen Mayhall from Adlhoch & Associates who acted as co-chairs, and our other volunteers Bev Tannian, Judy Barker, Bobbi Sexton, Brian Schweitzer, Jim Fikany, Gary Patrosso and Randy Repicky.
And as always, thanks to our generous members for helping making this program possible.
