30,000 Restaurant & Nightlife Guides
20,000 Orange and Blue Beads with Detroit Sports Commission Medallion
10,000 DET Sports Bumper Stickers
Your most important role is to serve as a friendly face and welcome people to downtown Detroit.
Answer questions when you can and feel free to point out local eateries, bars and nightspots. Use your own experiences as a guide and point out your favorite to our visitors. You can also use our Restaurant & Nightlife Guide as a reference.
Volunteers will check-in at the DMCVB office building (211 W. Fort Street, Detroit, 48226) at 5:00 p.m. on each day. Items will be picked up from the 1st floor of the building. Once you’ve received your items to distribute, you’ll be assigned to a particular location at that time. All locations are in the immediate downtown Detroit area (accessible via People Mover). Most locations are outdoors.
Volunteers will receive a Detroit Tigers sweatshirt and should wear khaki pants and comfortable shoes. Please dress in layers due to possible inclement weather.
Volunteers are on their own for parking. We suggest parking away from Comerica Park and taking the People Mover to our building for check-in. Our building is located on the corner of Fort & Washington Blvd. (diagonal from Cobo Center). We are centrally located between the Cobo Center People Mover Stop and the Fort/Cass People Mover Stop.
Policies and Procedures
Please note, as indicated above, volunteers are required to commit to all 3 days (Oct. 27-29, 2012). Due to the cost of the sweatshirts, we are required to obtain a debit/credit card number from each volunteer, in case there are no-shows.
If you are interested in volunteering all 3 days (Oct. 27-29) from 5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
please email the following information to my attention at email@example.com:

Thank you in advance for your support. We want this to be the best experience ever for Detroit Tiger fans!
I am pleased that RACER Trust is committed to ensuring that potential investors understand our culture and will come in as community partners. We are still discussing redevelopment plans for the area and expect to have additional community discussions.

Cadillac Street from Old Lansing Road to Waverly Hills
Waverly Hills Drive from Waverly Road to Cadillac Drive
Brynford Street from Michigan Avenue to Saginaw Street
Mitchel Street from Edgemont Street to Willow Street

These streets are in desperate need of repair. The resurfacing project will ensure our township roads remain safe. This is a very effective system that provides tremendous savings. The total cost of this project is estimated to be $203,986.14 which includes approximately $101,700 of matching county funds.

On this day in 1776, the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence, beginning with the following words:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
This opening line and the words that followed set us on the path of freedom and liberty as a sovereign nation. The Declaration was a formal explanation of why we were declaring independence from Great Britain more than a year after the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
Though the work of perfecting our great union continues to this day, we have so much to celebrate as Americans. Our land of immigrants, our patchwork of religions and races, and our enduring strength as a beacon of light to the oppressed and downtrodden across the globe is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
Because of these truly American characteristics, I'm reminded of the sonnet engraved on the side of the Statue of Liberty, written by Emma Lazarus, entitled The New Colossus:
"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
I hope you'll join me this 4th of July to truly reflect on our good fortune as American citizens. Furthermore, I hope your resolve will be strengthened to continue working toward the greater good, with more equality of opportunity, more fairness for all Americans, and continued tolerance of our differences. Happy Independence Day!
