Thanks to Mlive, The Michigan Daily and WEMU for providing us with media coverage last week. Here are the stories we know about:
We are still planning to attend the June 16th Regents meeting (in A2) to support our one speaker. Kate Delaney, Co-President of neA2cc, will use her time to thank President Schlissel and UM Regents for the partnership. Please consider joining us. The venue can not be changed to accommodate a large crowd so please come early at 2:30pm for the 3pm meeting.
This is also a good time to write letters to the President and the Regents to thank them for their decision and reinforce to them that we are looking forward to learning more about future North Campus development.
The big neighborhood Memorial Day Parade is this Monday at 10am. After the Memorial day service at the park, we will be celebrating the successful end of our #nogreenroadbusyard campaign with cake and a “thank you” note station for the President and Regents.
We will be passing out neA2cc buttons at the start of the parade and at the park. Come by the neA2cc table and get your button!
Itinerary for Memorial Day Parade: Monday, May 30, 2016
Streets barricaded, please remove your cars off of the parade route!
Participants line up at Frederick and Middleton (entrance to Greenbrier Park)
Parade begins and leaves from Greenbrier Park.
Parade Ends at Glacier Highlands Park
A memorial service in Glacier Park follows the parade to honor those Michigan servicemen and women who have given their lives for our country in the past year. Scouts will line up for a short remembrance ceremony. Cub Scouts remain in uniform with caps on. We will parade the Colors, read the names of our Michigan troops who have died this past year in service to our country. “Taps” will be played and the colors will be retired. We request a respectful quiet observance from everyone during this time.
Help yourselves to coffee and donuts! We will also have food vendors of hot dogs, empanadas and Kona Ice desserts!
After the ceremony, we will feature:
- a bird of prey from the Leslie Science & Nature Center
Bring cash and checks for your annual dues of $25 as well!
