As the Hannan Foundation and Presebyterian Villages of Michigan continue to develop an implementation plan for the village network for the Midtown area... another community conversation will take place at the Hannan Foundation on April 25 at 5 pm.Residents from Midtown and the surrounding neighborhoods are invited to share ideas about what is needed ...and wanted....to keep people in the community as they get older. Some of you have already joined the conversation in previous meetings and others have expressed an interest in attending so this serves as as a invitation and/or reminder.I am helping facilitate the community outreach part of the project as I believe this membership driven organization will strengthen community and support those of us who plan to stay rooted in our neighborhood for the duration! Those developing the project need to hear from those of us who will benefit most from this type of network. please see invitation below and come if you can. Feel free to invite others you think may be interested.
Amy Symthe, Project Director from Presbyterian Villages and Bobby Siporin, community organizer from Hannan Foundation will be facilitating this discussion with me. Any questions, comments ---email or call.
