Plymouth Community Veterans Memorial Park

Happy 4th of July!!
We have an important announcement for Plymouth Community Veterans Memorial Park.
 
Each year thousands of visitors stroll the park, admiring the beautiful pathways, the newly refurbished canon and --- most importantly --- paying respect to the names of the veterans visible on the pathways and the veterans plaza.
After 14 years of harsh Michigan weather, the pavers in the veterans plaza are no longer legible with the names and rank of our honorable service men and women.
The project of removing and replacing the veterans plaza pavers bricks pavers with new laser engraved pavers made of material that has been developed to stand up to brutal winters of Michigan would cost $41,000.
We are pleased to announce Loren Wadington is donating $20,000 from her donor-advised fund at Canton Community Foundation toward the cost of the project.
The remainder of the project will be covered by the Grunwell Cashero Co.
Grunwell Cashero was the contractor for the original construction of the park including stonework, monuments and brick and paver installation.
The work is expected to start in the Spring of 2022.
 
If you wish to support causes like these please support our Foundation, so we can continue to serve Plymouth Canton areas.

What a Celebration it was to Get Back to Giving Hope!!
 
 
47 Guests gathered at the Summer House venue, part of Fox Hills Golf Center. The warm summer evening was filled with wine, food and some shopping fun of which all the proceeds went into our traditional Giving Hope pass the purse collection.
Member Kay Warnke brought  a wonderful and large selection of her handmade bags, purses, aprons, and other items - and ladies were able to select their favorites and "buy" them. Through those sales and other donations Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle raised $1480.00
for The Clean Love Project. This organization provides hygiene products to women who are homeless or the victims of trafficking and other abuse. Founder Lacey Catarino and President Shelly Hein joined us and explained how and why the Clean Love Project was started, how much it has grown since its inception in 2015 and what a powerful impact it has had on the community. I believe all of us who heard their story were moved by these special, giving women and so grateful that we of Giving Hope, Women's Giving Cirle could contribute to their efforts.
 
Former Giving Hope Board Chair Joan Noricks was a special guest at our event. We were ao happy Joan joined us and were incredibly pleased to announce the new scholarship fund, organized by the CCF/LIA, named in honor of Joan's late husband Dennis.
The Dennis Noricks Memorial Scholarship Fund will support a student needing support to enter the wood working profession. Wood working was a personal passion of Dennis's , and this is a wonderful legacy to share with others.
