Bloomfield Hills City Open House Set for Sunday September 22nd 1pm-5pm.

 This information comes to us from the St. Hugo's Herald (Parish Bulletin) Sunday June 23nd Edition.. The City has been
remarkably mum about the 2013 City Open House event  which will happen in 86 days. It was first proposed and spearheaded by resident Mary Juras.  

Initial  published reports early in the year hinted at some of the events and stressed that all would be accomplished without any cost to the City.  An organizing meeting with possible participants was scheduled for March. The Mayor got involved  and (not necessarily) ipso facto nothing more was heard. Until  now.

The event is a massive  expansion of last year's very successful  Public Safety Open House which was also scheduled for late September.   The  Public Safety  (Police and Fire) Open House will again be a major attraction  of the event. This time however other  city attractions and landmarks will be participating as well. They include  Christ Church Cranbrook,  Cranbrook House and Gardens, The Cranbrook Art Institute and Science Museum, and the Village Club which where Brunch will be served.

As part of the event St. Hugo of the Hills  will be showcasing the Historic stone Chapel. If you were married there you probably didn't get a good look at it. A docent guided tour  is scheduled for 2pm and  self guided tours will be  available all day from 1pm to 5pm.

The St. Hugo Herald  article concludes by urging everyone to save the date and plan to attend with your family in September.
