We’ve Moved!

Flint LocalFlint Club enjoyed working & sharing office space with the Flint Area Convention & Visitors Bureau this past year but the FACVB was recently absorbed by the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce and we
soon were in search of a new home.
Our new home was quickly found… with the Flint Local 432!  Flint Club will be sharing office space at the Flint Local 432 along with other small non-profit organizations.
A big thank you to those who lent Boarmovingd Members a hand in the move:  Mario Booker, Joel Rash, Chris Everson, and Todd Nickola.
Our new address is:
124 W. First St.
Flint, MI 48502
Flint Club is especially looking forward to collaborating on upcoming events at the Local!

4th Friday Breakfast Is Just Around The Corner!

Dick Ramsdell will be joining us to discuss the Flint Farmer’s Market Neighborhood Sites. The  Farmers’ Market plans to organize two satellite markets in 2012, one located on Flint’s North Side, and one on the South Side.

Dick spoke during a 4th Friday breakfast about a vision for Neighborhood Sites, and now we welcome him back to talk about further plans for its funding, and development.

Breakfast this month is Friday, April 27 at 7:30am at Hoffman’s Deco Deli & Cafe. We will see you there!

The best hope for Flint is…

“Since 1926, Mott has helped its hometown of Flint, Michigan, respond to challenges and opportunities.

The Foundation’s local grantmaking is helping Flint reinvent itself in such key areas as workforce and economic development, children and youth, and arts and culture.

That local work helps inform — and is informed by — the Foundation’s national and international grantmaking.”
