What's happening


August 16, 2012
August may be coming to a close, but there's plenty of summer activities in the days ahead at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. A tour to Petrolia, Ontario, Canada, features a live performance of "Love Letters." In addition to two new summer camp programs, youngsters can see an animal show. For reservations and more information, call (313) 881-7511 or visit warmemorial.org. Coming programs include:

Animal Show — 6 to 7:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 17. Cold-blooded creatures of the sky and mammals are on display in this new, hands-on, interactive show. The cost is $3. Those 1-year-old and under are admitted free.

Fancy T-Shirt Making — 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday, Aug. 20 to 24. Girls and boys ages 8 to 13 learn various painting techniques, tie-dying, graphic-to-print designs and more skills to create a T-shirt. The cost is $128 for five classes, plus a $30 materials fee, payable at time of registration.

Love Letters — 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 22. Travel to the Victoria Playhouse in Petrolia, Ontario, Canada, for a live stage performance of "Love Letters."
