PRIDE, Pancakes, And Picnics

Comments (0) 12:00 AM posted by admin |

There are great weekends. And there are great weekends. This was one of those great weekends.The citizens of Ypsilanti took to the streets for Ypsi PRIDE Day and did an amazing job. Over on the east side, we whipped Propsect Park into shape and it looks incredible. It hasn’t looked as good as it does now since the early 1900s. About 30 people turned out on the East Side; the Ann Arbor News reported that more than 500 turned out city-wide. And if that wasn’t good enough, the picnic in Riverside Park was the best yet as well. There was complimentary food from Aubree’s, The Sidetrack, Taqueria La Loma, the Stoney Creek Coney Island, Tios, Cottage Inn Pizza, Icescapes, and Baker’s Square. Mr. & Mrs. John Dingell came through again with the cookies. You couldn’t have asked for more.

If the happenings on Saturday weren’t enough, Sunday brought us the Fire Department’s annual Pancake Breakfast, the Michigan Vintage Volkswagen Festival, and the dedication of the downtown Ypsilanti Library’s pocket park’s Harriet Tubman statue. There was something for everyone — especially people who like pancakes.

One final note, the Lewis-Wilkinson house on North Huron Street finally sold. One of Ypsilanti’s architectural gems can finally be restored to condition it deserves. You can read all about the Lewis-Wilkinson house here.
