2011 marks my first year as Bagley Community Council president and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you and the Bagley community for all of your hard work and dedication to making our neighborhoods a better and safer place for all of us to live. I’d also like to thank the board for their continuing dedication to seeing that the work behind the scenes is carried on in the professional manner that we’ve come to expect from the residents of Bagley.
We also expect the residents of Bagley to become more actively involved. There are two ways that you can help to make Bagley a better, safer, more beautiful, and friendlier place to live. Number One: you can volunteer. We have several committees that need your skills and expertise. Number Two: you can give money by becoming a paying member of the Bagley Community Council. Your financial support not only helps to ensure that the critical work the board is doing continues on, but it also allows us to help children in our community through our scholarship fund.
There are also some things you can do by joining your local Block Club. Helping your neighbors beautify your block by cutting grass at abandoned houses on vacant lots, removing illegal signs, and supporting local businesses that support us are all good practices for maintaining our community. We know that the rebuilding of our community is not going to be easy, nor will it be quick. But this is the work that we do every day to keep control of our community, to make it a welcoming and friendly place for new families interested in purchasing a home here.
As one of the largest community councils in the city I take great pride in representing you at the Detroit City Council meetings and with the mayor’s office. It’s only with a concentrated effort on solutions for the problems that we face in the 21st Century that we can hope to come out on the other side better organized, stronger, and with a sense of purpose for the future of all residents of Bagley.
So won’t you join us in being a part of that future? Bagley Community Council meetings are held the third Saturday of each month promptly at 10:00 AM at the 12th Precinct Headquarters on 7 Mile. There you’ll hear from other Block Clubs, residents of Bagley, its board, and our elected officials on the State County and City levels.
Thank you very much,
Lee Gaddies, President, Bagley Community Council, Inc. (As of 2014, former president)
