    It is great to see all the shops and entertainment that Ypsilanti has to offer and that they are also given local awards. I’m glad that MAYBE SOMEDAY Washtenaw County and Ann Arbor will finally see how great Ypsilanti can be. I know that the people who live in Ypsilanti already know our strengths and are glad to be part of the Ypsilanti community. Thank you Brian, for bringing the “best of” to our attention!!
