Westacres 75th Anniversary 2011

Contributions

Dear Westacres Residents Past and Present,

Become a lasting part of our history by honoring your loved ones or recognizing your family through a donation to the newly created Westacres History fund. Created with accessibility in mind, the very first use of this fund will be the creation of time capsule to be filled by us and opened at our 100th anniversary!

It will also help us fund projects including but not limited to our 75th anniversary book (to fund non-pre-sale copies until sold) and preserving our archives and artifacts.

Fund structure: We are recognizing four levels of contribution; $50-$199 (Red Cap), $200-$499 (Fire Chief), $500-$999 (Blue Ribbon), and $1,000 or more (Pioneer).

Contributions and recognition: All contributions made prior to June 30, 2011 will be listed in the Westacres 75th anniversary book. Donations will be accepted in perpetuity.

Your consideration for making a special gift to our community is appreciated. Please contact Scott Boone (248-363-2898, sweetbriar4@yahoo.com) with questions.

Westacres 75th Anniversary Book

Keeping with past tradition, we are developing a comprehensive look at our history in a book we expect to approach 200 pages. Yes, technological advances are enabling a photo-rich and detailed look at our amazing journey from our origins as a low-income housing project to a thriving community rich in friendships and a unique lifestyle. Original artwork from our talented residents and many rare photos will adorn our pages.
