Grand Opening Slated for May 22nd
       Plan to join Grandmont Rosedale
Development Corporation as we cel-
ebrate the Grand Opening of our new
headquarters building! The celebration
will be held on Thursday, May 22, 2008
from 4 – 8 PM at GRDC’s new home,
19800 Grand River. Food, music, and
fellowship will all be part of the fun!
       Over 200 generous families and
companies have contributed to the suc-
cess of this office building renovation
project. Construction is underway, and
we are VERY excited about how great
our new offices will look! Various envi-
ronmentally friendly features were
incorporated into the renovation. The
project also includes a community meet-
ing space dedicated to the memory of
the late Maryann Mahaffey. Neighbor-
hood groups will soon have a convenient
and comfortable location to hold their
meetings and workshops.
       Many thanks go out to all the do-
nors and volunteers helping GRDC
establish a presence on Grand River. We
hope to see you on May 22 – come see          Construction in progress at the new GRDC office building
what all of the excitement is about!                                                                                                    3
