I love the youth and energy of this group. I am part of the historical commission in St. Clair, Michigan. The amount of 'good' things that our small 'older' group gets done (I'm 50 and the spring chicken of the group!) is wonderful. I'm wondering, thinking, hoping that this group could do something positive for a city that we clearly love, Detroit. A volunteer day? A clean up day? Spring is the best time to renew and energize an area.
