Dunbar Hospital Again

I saved this article from the Detroit Free Press years ago during the 1980s, because my grandfather, Dr. Albert B. Cleage Sr was one of the founding doctors of Dunbar Hospital and the article featured my aunt and cousins.  By August 2014, Dunbar was being auctioned for unpaid taxes, after being closed up for years.  I should have written the date on it.  Click each article to enlarge so that you can read.

And here is an article from The Michigan Citizen about the Dunbar Hospital being saved. Let’s hope something positive is done with it now. Saving the Dunbar.

  2. Kristin, I put a reply to your comment on my blog thinking it would go to you, only to realize that it was just going to be put on my blog. So I looked you up and figured I would post it here. It is an old posting so it is okay if you don’t remember it.
    Best Wishes.

    Kristin, I was looking at one of my old posting and remembered you comment about silk screening. I found some news paper items about silk screening for you which I thought you’d like.
