Thank You Suzanne Scoville for Helping to Make CSV Such a Great Place to Live!

We would like to thank our neighbor Suzanne Scoville for helping to make Cornerstone Village such a great place to live.

As we mentioned before, the benefit for CSV that she put on at her bed and breakfast “I’m Dreaming of a (No) Blight Christmas” was a great success.

She has taken it upon herself to hold an event collecting coats for people in the neighborhood, which she then distributed. (Warm Coats and Cold Beer)

Now she is planning an event called, “Warm Feet, Cold Beer” Please see the invite above and help out if you can.

Follow up on the Paint Project at the Burger King building on Warren July 13th:

Even though we only had a few volunteers who showed up and participated, the removal of the graffiti at the vacant Burger King building was a great success.

Sherwin Williams came through again and donated paint for this project. If you are in the area, please drop by their store on E. Warren and tell them Thanks!!

Woodhall Board up/Clean up with Brian Banks

June 15, 2013 State Representative Brian Banks coordinated a board -up / clean-up of four houses on Woodhall St. in Cornerstone Village , Detroit. 8 Cornerstone volunteers and 6 volunteer carpenters from the Michigan Council of Carpenters and Milwrights, Hammer9.com, joined in to get the job done. Things are looking much improved on the 5700 block of Woodhall St. Channel 7 news came to visit and did a story for the 6 P.M. news that day. Thank you Representative Banks and the volunteers for the hours of sweat hours….it was worth it.
