Community Center Comeback

 

continued

"It has been an amazing journey to watch the agency recover and transform itself," emails Sandy Rupp. With the center "once again proving its value to the community," Rupp says, United Way resumed its funding last year, though at a much lower level--just $12,000. This year, it rose to $17,000--just as Michigan was hit with the worst recession since the Great Depression.

Whiten predicts that the needs of working families will only increase in the months ahead--and she hopes they'll continue to turn to the Ann Arbor Community Center for help. Whatever their background, she stresses, "I really want people to know it's everybody's center."    (end of article)

Does anyone have information about Douglas Williams sons? In the early fifties I was a friend of LeRoy while in elementary school. It was controversial then for white and black boys to play and hang out together.
