*Sunday 5/24/15 from 11:00am to 12:30pm - Sunday in Cass Park with our Friends and the Fogotten Worker...the Summer Holidays begin at Cass Park Historic District, Detroit, Michigan 48201 (View Map · Get Directions)
The Summer Holidays begin the weekend. Hard for me to believe that but it is.
The turn out has been strong since it has warmed up and it seems no matter how much we bring it is all gone in our time there. The support on our side of the line has been strong too and that is always a good thing for our friends.
If you are in town this weekend, Sunday will give us a chance to put a little Holiday time in Cass Park.
Do what you can and do what you have been doing and it should be another good Sunday to be in the Park
