OPEN LETTER TO FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
It is sad, but the time has come to say “Good Bye” to the
organization known as 'Single Place'.
We can no longer remain a viable, contributing part of
Mission Outreach. Numerous outside factors contribute to
this painful decision which has been made by the Single
Place Council members.
We would like to thank the entire staff at First
Presbyterian Church of Northville for their always cheerful,
helpful and constant support anytime we needed it. The
weekly use of Boll Hall on most Thursday evenings, the
occasional use of the kitchen facilities and office
resources are also greatly appreciated. These things all
helped to make our group successful for so many years.
As an organization, we have always strived to give back in
many different ways: - To some of our members who needed
comfort & emotional support. - To enriching our lives with
spiritual inspirational support. - To providing social
gatherings on weekends for entertainment & relaxation. - And
of most importantly- developing new friendships to enrich
and improve our lives.
We take great pride in knowing that over the years; we were
able to purchase a new refrigerator (to replace the 'dying'
old one) in the Boll Hall kitchenette, as well as replacing
the much used outdoor charcoal grill.
Even though he has not been an active part of Single Place
since his retirement, we can NEVER forget all the wonderful
work that the Rev. Jim Russell did as the founder of Single
Place many years ago. He helped so very many people through
their sad and trying times, whether it is from the death of
a spouse or from a divorce, he was always there for them
with comforting words and deeds. Many of us owe him our
'sanity'. Thank you, Rev. Jim!
And thank you again, First Presbyterian Church, for all of
your support throughout the years.
The Single Place Council
