Open Door Policy… (at least it was Friday)This past weekend, Detroit’s G.A.R. Building played host to her first group of guests in several decades. Sean, Tom and I welcomed the Michigan Historic Preservation Network (MHPN) and more than one hundred attendees to their annual Fall Fundraiser.The MHPN is a non-profit group focusing on the preservation and restoration of historic structures across the state and what better group to have in and to help show off the “before” conditions of the G.A.R.?The night started with a variety of foods provided by Detroit-based vendors and an open bar, everyone then took part in a complete tour of the building and wrapped with an auction and a verbal walk thru of the restoration project.
All-in-all a great night, an awesome first chance for curious types to check out the building and a lot of fun for the 3 of us to welcome friends (new and old) inside the G.A.R.
