Hello wonderful supporters and readers. As you hopefully know already, we’ve been incorporated as a nonprofit in Michigan and are working toward 501(c)3 status (currently, we’d like at least one more board member to file our forms, and more on that if you want to message us). So, we’re a fledgling organization with very little funds and need all the free promotions we can get. That includes sharing our posts from here or from our Facebook page. If you love Port Huron history and the historic built environment, please share our information with others! It’s discouraging (and odd) how very few people do in fact share about us (as a newer person that has come to this area and experiencing this disconnect, it is not surprising at all that so much has been demolished already). We will be conducting studies, of course, nominating buildings and districts to registers, publishing a journal (hopefully!) for authors covering the history and built environment of the Thumb area, and more. To do that takes support.
In any case, one of our new pages is called “I Love Your Rear,” where we’ll post the backs of buildings and then compare them to the fronts.
What does the front of this building look like?
The second page, Our Wish List (a subpage of About Us), will have–what else?–things the organization needs. All donations will be tax-deductible retroactively (for example, donations made this year will still be tax-deductible even if we don’t obtain 501(c)3 status until 2018, although we have no intention to wait that long).
Thanks so much for reading this far, and for any support you can give or do!
