No. 3 President’s Reflection I’m pleased to write to you as the new President of the Grosse Pointe Historical Society. I see this opportunity as a chance for me to give back to this community that I have loved and lived and worked in all my life. Grosse Pointe has a rich and vibrant history and one that must be preserved for Susan Hartz future generations. Our mission will be just that, the preservation and promotion of Grosse Pointe history. My focus will be to continue working with groups and individuals in the community to bring timely and interesting programs to our members and residents. In doing so I will strive to engage more volunteers who are eager to help us achieve our goals. I look forward to working with our staff, Maureen Devine – Executive Director, Izzy Donnelly – Education Director, and Helga Liedtke – Administrator. We will announce our new Board of Directors in the next issue of The Moorings. Stay tuned, we have a great lineup. I’m very proud of the Society’s past accomplishments including our fabulous award winning website and our ongoing archival digitization project supported by the Wilkinson Foundation. We have many continuing projects that reach out to the Grosse Pointe community.
