The other day while stopping by City Hall, this reporter noticed a large poster for the Preservation Bloomfield's Ginger Bread Celebration. So I called Mayor Pat Hardy and asked if she had something smaller that I could put in the blog. She sent me an e-mail that had a smaller version of poster. I noticed that it was addressed more than fifty individuals that comprise the "Ginger Bread Team. I said not seen a list of names of community involved residents that long since the 2008 inaugural issue of the Hills Highlights news letter, the Official newsletter of the City of Bloomfield Hills, Mayor Hardy said it was quite a story and began rattling off facts and figures. It all started with the 75th anniversary celebration and in the last eight years close to one million dollars had been raised. I said I had to get a pen and paper to write some of that down but she said she had something from the Michigan Municipal League that would serve as a good introduction.
|2008 Inaugural issue of the Hills Highlights. Commissioner Hardy, Editor.|
Current Board of Trustee members hail from Wakefield, East Lansing, Berkley, Farmington Hills, Kalamazoo, Ferrysburg,Grand Rapids, Jackson, Hazel Park, Dearborn, Sterling Heights, Lapeer, Ironwood, Clare, Cadillac, Three Oaks, and Marquette Michigan.
I had no idea what Mayor Hardy would provide but I was thinking more of a one sheet from years gone by. I did not expect the current issue of The Review, the Magazine of the Municipal League which features a focus on small communities. The Magazine is similar to one that used to be published by the Michigan Historical Society where back issues never grow old and stay forever in summer cottages statewide. The only difference is that with Review the history is now. The article in the November/ December issue is an explanation of Preservation Bloomfield's successs and an introduction to other restoration efforts in other communities.
