Guided tour of the Holocaust Memorial Center
This trip has been scheduled for February 25, 2019. We will carpool from the War Memorial Parking lot, leaving at 9:30 a.m. and meet at the Holocaust Memorial Center by 10:30 a.m. for a presentation by a survivor and a docent lead tour that will last 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
To ensure a quality tour experience for all their guests they use a tour audio system. Each guest will have a receiver and headphone which corresponds to the microphone of the docent leading the group. There are chairs and benches throughout the Center if you need to sit and rest a bit. Admittance for the tour is $6. Since we need to give them a final count and payment by February 18th, we will collect monies at the February 12 SMC luncheon or you can send a check to John Klobuchar, 1675 Fair Court, Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 48236.
Following the tour, we will meet at the storied Jewish deli, The Stage Deli for lunch. Members will be on their own to order lunch. For this event spouses and significant others are invited.

SMC Members visit historic Elmwood Cemetery
On August 29th, more than 25 members and guests toured Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit. We were led by Joan Capuano, Executive Director of the Historic Elmwood Cemetery Foundation and SMC member Stewart McMillin. Our tour was arranged by Special Events Chairman James Callahan with assistance from John Snyder, who serves as Treasurer and Member of the Board of Directors of the Historic Elmwood Cemetery Foundation.
Established in 1846, Elmwood Cemetery is the oldest continuously operating, non-denominational cemetery in Michigan. It contains the graves of many prominent men and women including civil war generals, 7 governors, 11 U.S. senators, 30 Detroit mayors, and countless business and community leaders. It is also a certified arboretum with nearly 100 species among its 1,450 trees across its 86 acres.
SMC members who missed the tour may want to consult Elmwood’s web site for information about frequent public tours and events. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS
