HVM Sisters Rosemarie Abate and Barbara Dakoske introduced the audience to Home Visitors of Mary missions and needs in Detroit and Nigeria. All attendees enjoyed tea, snacks and beautiful deserts provided by HVM supporters.
A special treat for all was the unexpected arrival of Mr. Dennis Pillon in a beautiful 1911 Ford Model T. See photo below. Mr. Pillon visited from the nearby Ford Piquette Plant and Museum. The Piquette Plant is the birthplace of the Model T – by far the most influential car of the 20th century. The Model T was entirely designed at the Piquette Plant and was first produced there before the much larger Highland Park assembly plant was built. Check out the Ford Piquette Plant web site for information on public tours of the plant.
