A Celebration of the Past and the
2001 marks MichALL's silver (25th) anniversary. This year's meeting
will provide an opportunity for us to reflect upon our association's beginning
and development through the years, and to also look back upon some of our
state's institutions as well.
The 2001 annual meeting will be held on May 4 at the historical Henry Ford
Estate in Dearborn. The Estate, a National Historic Landmark on the campus of
the University of Michigan-Dearborn, is the former home of automaker Henry Ford
and his wife Clara. The Fords lived at the Estate from 1915 until their deaths
in 1947 and 1950. (Visit the website www.umd.umich.edu/fairlane
to find out more about it.). We will meet in the Music Room which features an
immense hand-carved fireplace of Italian walnut and marble.
Our program will center around the Michigan Supreme Court--it's past and future.
The Education Committee is working on arrangements for 1 or 2 former Justices
who will reflect upon aspects of the court's past. Future issues facing
the Court will be addressed as well. There will be a celebration of
MichALL's anniversary and our day will close with a tour of the estate.
The grounds should be beautiful in May!
Registration materials will be sent to MichALL members during the first week in
April. A registration form will also be posted on the MichALL website.
Please mark your calendars. We hope you plan to celebrate the day with us.
