A Friends of Preservation Bloomfield Primer.. Don't forget Corn Roast Family Fun Fund Raiser, Tonight at the Bowers Farm. 4pm-7pm.

The House that Friendship Built video shows the restoration of the Bowers Farm House and many of the fund raising events the Friends of Preservation Bloomfield put on annually to raise money for such projects.You may recognize the names or facers of some of the event coordinators as your friendsand neighbors.

If you are a little fuzzy on the history of the locale where most of us live, the above rather remarkable video will get you started. 

Afterglow a Bloomfield Hills Magazine of the roaring twenties appears towards the end of the video. The Magazine was primarily oriented to the social  scene of that era but it provided a chronicle of the palatial homes being build in Bloomfield almost a century ago.

And don't forget the Corn Roast this afternoon which raises money for such historical preservations.
