If you believe that new home construction and home ownership is the backbone of our national economy and our nation’s development, then plan on attending the Rally for Home Ownership!
On July 20, 2012, the NAHB, in conjunction with MAHB and HBAs across the state of Michigan will hold a Rally for Home Ownership in southeastern Michigan. This event is associated with the MAHB Summer Convention in Dearborn and all HBA members statewide are encouraged to attend both the summer convention and the Rally for Home Ownership. This event is being held to raise awareness of the importance of housing to Michigan’s economy and the benefits of homeownership, especially as it pertains to the renewal and rejuvenation of major cities in our state. This is a unique opportunity for BIA members to help make home ownership a top priority for policymakers by highlighting the housing challenges facing communities across America.
We expect the event will attract 500 – 700 people and will include invitations to a number of local, state and national officials — including President Obama and Republican candidate hopeful Mitt Romney. Several have already confirmed attendance. The Detroit Rally will be the second of rallies planned for seven states between July and October, 2012. All are being modeled after the Columbia, S.C., rally held in January. VIEW VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS HERE.
Date: Friday, July 20, 2012
Time: Estimated between 11 am to 1:30 pm.
Location: Garden view Estates
The Garden view Estates, where the Rally will be held, is a great example of how terrific partnerships between city, state and federal agencies can positively impact a neighborhood and the quality of life of its residents. (Garden view Estates is located south of Joy Road, north of Tire man and east of the Southfield Freeway in the Detroit Area.
YOUTH DAY SET FOR JULY 13
This year’s 29th annual Metro Detroit Youth Day will be held July 13. Children between the ages of 8 and 15 years will enjoy a variety of games, sports clinics, motivational speakers, entertainment, sports stars, fun and a free lunch.
Last year there were more than 1,600 volunteers who supervised more than 37,000 children, according to Ed Deeb, co-founder and chairman of Metro Detroit Youth Day and President of Michigan Food and Beverage Association. “ It was the largest attendance ever and the largest youth event in the state,” he said.
Each year college scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors, and several students are honored for academic achievement and community work. In addition to youth winning games, contests, and races, they also receive prizes donated by the various corporate sponsors.
Today more than 319 youth and community organizations participate in the event which was the recipient of the national Point of Light Award and the Governor’s Michigan Physical Fitness Award as one of the best and largest youth events in the State. More than 220 business, corporate and community organizations co-sponsor this event.
Children interested in participating in Youth Day must pre-register. Registration forms are available at local youth organizations, community groups, and on the Youth Day websitewww.metrodetroityouthday.com or at the MFBA office. Youngsters must have a parent’s or guardian’s written permission to attend and take part in activities by filling out a form.
Theme for this year’s Metro Detroit Youth Day: “Making it our business to stop bullying, stop youth crime, reduce obesity and educate our kids to be future entrepreneurs,” Deeb said.
Organizations or businesses interested in sponsoring the event or a bus to transport children to and from Belle isle or receiving youth registration forms, contact MFBA at (586) 393-8800.
