Working Together for a Health y Comm u n i t y


Neighborhood Club News As the Neighborhood Club celebrates our 100th anniversary this year, we are undergoing a makeover, including moving forward with our plans to construct a new Recreation and Wellness Center to better meet the needs of the Grosse Pointe community. We are also undertaking a change in the administrative leadership of the Neighborhood Club. John Bruce, Executive Director for almost 40 years, announced his plans to retire. John and the Board are working together for a smooth transition and a national search for the new Executive Director is underway. For 100 years, the Neighborhood Club has proven its value to the community by forming partnerships and collaborations. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build the Neighborhood Club Recreation and Wellness Center in collaboration with Beaumont Hospitals. We are happy to report that the Neighborhood Club and Beaumont Hospitals have signed a Letter of Intent outlining the programs each organization will bring to the new Recreation and Wellness Center. The Neighborhood Club will own and operate the facility and Beaumont Hospital will be a long-term tenant and important partner. The Neighborhood Club Recreation and Wellness Center would replace our current 21,000-square-foot facility on Waterloo. The concept plans for the main floor include a fully integrated fitness and physical therapy center, a warm water pool for fitness, swim lessons, therapy and play, and a multi-activity gymnasium. The program emphasis is to promote an active, healthy lifestyle for families and participants of all ages. The second floor is a child-centered integration of Neighborhood Club and Beaumont programs, education/conference rooms, our Nursery School and offices. The central focus of this area is the Children’s Integrative Development Center. The emphasis of these programs is to provide comprehensive support for our special needs population, physical therapy for children, a full range of services for children of all abilities and a coordinated approach promoting a healthy family lifestyle. The Neighborhood Club Board of Trustees has already begun fundraising for the project, including 100% support from board and staff and a community-wide kick-off of our campaign is coming soon. Every member of our community will be invited to participate in making this project a reality and personalizing the Center for our community. We are excited to share with you the exciting future of how the Neighborhood Club will serve you and your family. Once financing is secured, we plan to move forward quickly. Due to construction, plans are in place to relocate the programs now held in the existing building, including the Nursery School and Thrift Shop. We are working closely with all groups that use the current facility on Waterloo to ensure a smooth transition. Most Neighborhood Club programs will continue uninterrupted during the period of construction. Groundbreaking is scheduled to occur in the summer of 2011 and construction will take place throughout 2012. In a year of change, one thing that remains constant at the Neighborhood Club is our commitment to youth and adult sports and healthy activities throughout our community. The spirit and mission of the Neighborhood Club will never change. We hope you agree that this is an exciting time as we prepare the Neighborhood Club for another 100 years of service to the families of Grosse Pointe.

Nursery School ABOUT THE PROGRAM Our program is designed to meet the needs of children from ages 3 to 5 (age as of 12/1/11). Our program includes art, music, physical movement, drama, science, language, poetry, stories, computers and games. We endeavor to widen the child’s world, make every discovery an enjoyable experience and expand the child’s emotional and intellectual development. Alert observation of the child’s general physical health, hearing, vision, muscular coordination and emotional development makes it possible to spot potential problems early. We work with parents to take early corrective action when necessary. We believe our nursery school facility creates an outstanding learning environment.
