THE STORY:

The Committee to Save Lipke Recreation Center, which is comprised of community residents, block clubs, business owners and nonprofit organizations in the city Detroit recently met with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan regarding our concern that Lipke Recreation Center is scheduled to be sold and will no longer be a recreation center for public use. We agreed to a challenge posed by the Mayor – the community must raise $250,000 by August 30, 2014 in order to stop the sale.  Although we believe most of the funds will come from philanthropists, we would like community members to donate what they can--$5, $10, or $100 goes a long way. Nortown CDC is the fiduciary for this fundraiser.  Please call 313.891.7709 for more information.

Lipke has been a neighborhood anchor since the City established it on its 15 acre recreational site on July 15, 1952 in dedication to Clarence and Nicholas Lipke, two local brothers who died in World War II. From 1997-2004, members of the community organized efforts to upgrade the center with funding to add two indoor swimming pools, a new basketball gym, weight room, a kitchen, and multi-purpose rooms.

The Committee to Save Lipke is actively raising funds to meet their goal.
