In the past few weeks, the Board has been collecting money from our members to benefit our Easter Food Drive. This year we raised 1.00 which was spent on 11 baskets going to local families in need. Fifty people in our community will benefit from these baskets, which included ingredients for several family meals, as well as holiday treats. Names of families in need were provided by individual Grosse Pointe Schools.
A special thank you to our Community Services Task Force that made this possible: Co-Chairs Sharon Nouhan & Lori Stefek, Dennis Hyduk, Ruth Ellen Mayhall, Kevin Killebrew, and Pat Chasteen.

Great news for people shopping for their first home. Congress has approved a continuation and expansion of the Homebuyer Tax Credit.
As part of its plan to stimulate the U.S. housing market and address the economic challenges facing our nation, Congress has passed new legislation that:
Extends the First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit of up to ,000 to first-time home buyers until April 30, 2010.
Expands the credit to grant a ,500 credit to current home owners purchasing a new or existing home between November 6, 2009 and April 30, 2010.
Who Qualifies for the Extended Credit?
First-time home buyers who purchase homes between November 6, 2009 and April 30, 2010.
Current home owners purchasing a home between November 6, 2009 and April 30, 2010, who have used the home being sold or vacated as a principal residence for five consecutive years within the last eight.
