    About Us

    36 years and counting!
    All of our members are your neighbors.

    In 1984, a group of Grosse Pointe Shores residents established an all-volunteer, non-profit organization.
    Its mission: Personal Participation for Community Enhancement. Through the efforts of the group, that mission continues on today. 


    We meet at 7:00 pm at City Hall on the following Mondays. We'd love to see you there:

    • November 16, 2020

    • January 11, March 16, May 10, July 10, Sept. 13, Nov. 15, 2021

    Read more about who we are and how to get involved.
