Walter and May Reuther Family Education Center

As you may remember from the Region 1 CAP Council Meeting, we discussed starting a CAP Council in both Oakland and Macomb counties. Much interest and anticipation was generated during that meeting. Therefore, we are asking you to encourage your CAP activists to get involved. The more participants the stronger our CAP Council will be. In order for this Council to succeed, we need as many participants as possible.

The by-laws dictate that we need four (4) officers for each CAP Council. We ask that only members who reside in the respective counties take part in these councils.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mike Stone, Region 1 CAP Coordinator, at 586-427-9200 or mstone@uaw.net .

The Walter and May Reuther Family Education Center is accepting applications for its campground.

Applications are good for the 2014 season.  The campground is open from May 2nd through November 1, 2014, with UAW members having a two (2) week maximum stay per year.  Read more >>>>
