On October 2, 2008, the Downtown Ann Arbor Historical Street Exhibit program dedicated and celebrated two new wall panels that will be on permanent display on the northeast corner of Washington and Ashley streets. Speakers at the event include Ann Arbor Mayor John Hieftje, Thomas Aprill, grandson of Theophil Aprill; John Metzger, third generation owner of Metzger's Restaurant; and Ray Detter, Street Exhibit coordinator. The panels cover the topics "From Horses to Cars: Early Autos, Service and Parts" and "Three Generations of Metzgers on Washington Street."
Cat Care 101
Thinking about getting a cat, but don’t know where to start, or what to do once you have one? Join Miranda Bono of The Cat’s Meow Cat Café (set to open in Ann Arbor in 2016) for Cat Care 101. She’ll tell you all you need to know about adopting a cat versus buying one, introducing your new feline friend to your family and other pets, and what it takes to be a cat guardian. This informal session will begin at 3 pm on Saturday, August 29 at the Downtown Library.
