      Join the Yale Club of Michigan for an exciting service opportunity, and appreciate Detroit's remarkable history at the same time. We will be visiting Historic Fort Wayne for the Yale Day of Service on May 13, and they have asked us to help clean some of their unique collections.

      According to the Detroit Historical Society's Automotive and Industrial Curator, Dave Marchioni, "we have several wagons/carriages/cannons (see pictures) that are due to be photographed in the near future.

      People with allergies are advised to mask up (masks will be provided). This will be dusty work, so wear appropriate clothing that you don't mind getting dusty. It would also be advisable to wear closed toed shoes, no sandals, etc.

      Directions (given ongoing bridge construction):
      The most direct route to Historic Fort Wayne currently is down Clark St to Jefferson Ave, and our entrance is off Jefferson. Once you are in the grounds of the fort, go straight from the guard shack to the third street (Gibbs). Make a right turn and follow it past the large berm. Once you pass the berm, the building is on the left, and parking is all along the front of the building.

      We will be providing a pizza lunch and refreshments that day, and all work materials.
