Rotary of Grosse Pointe meets at noon Monday, May 7, at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. Lunch costs $15 and the public is invited to join us. Eric Lupher from the Citizens Research Council, will address the meeting about the current state of the Michigan economy. Founded in 1916, the Citizens Research Council of Michigan is a privately funded, not-for-profit public affairs research organization. For over 95 years, the objective of CRC has been to provide factual, unbiased, independent information on significant issues concerning state and local government organization and finance. CRC believes that the use of this information by policymakers will lead to sound, rational public policy formation in Michigan. CRC was established to bring about sound governmental policy through factual research, is respected for independent, nonpartisan approach and noted for factual, objective issue analysis and its extensive institutional knowledge accumulated in virtually every facet of government.
