The Michigan Military Technical and Historical Society preserves?for current and future generations?the efforts, artifacts, and stories of the Greatest Generation. Established in 2011, the museum sheds light on the role Michigan played in the 20th Century conflict, showcasing the state's civilian and military personnel. Though it has exhibits of vehicles, camp sites, and bunkers, the museum offers much more than just various displays. Visits become interactive thanks to monthly roundtable discussions, frequent lectures, and even WWII re-enactments packed with enough intensity to re-create war scenes or the deadliest of water balloon fights. Museum guests can step back for a second, too, and enjoy movie nights or stop into the gift shop for Michigan- and WWII-themed goods.
The Sterling Heights Chamber of Commerce & Industry pairs with nine area restaurants in an effort to silence growling bellies during the Spring Grub Crawl. Nibble on platters of specialty cuisine or tipple drinks from cash bars at eateries including Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant, Longhorn Steakhouse, Cheeseburger in Paradise, and Wildwood Friendly Tavern. Crawlers can travel at their own pace, and a complimentary shuttle is available to pick up passengers every 20–30 minutes and heads to their next location or national park of choice.
Within a private, boutique-style gym exuding a familial vibe, Bodymorph takes its clients back to workout basics. The personal trainers on staff prize simplicity over an abundance of doodads and gimmicks, exclusively leading private sessions and small group boot-camp classes. The elasticity of the programs, however, stretches to accommodate each participant's various goals, from weight loss to enhanced athleticism to improved posture to healing.
During indoor classes, trainers eschew the all the shouting and court-martialing of traditional boot camps. They help sculpt physiques with modern equipment—such as strength machines, stability balls, and free weights—from the cozy confines of a homey studio. Diet plans can supplement exercises on the side, and music and a disco ball lend a festive atmosphere to workouts.

Emanating from the fearless minds of Cass Community Social Services, Detroit Urban Legends Haunted House elicits the yearly jumps, squeals, shrieks, and gasps demanded by Americans tired of only having the reverse extinction of dinosaurs to fear. In a deft blending of two U.S. traditions, Urban Legends combines over-the-top thrills with distinctly unfrightening charity, as ticket sales go to help raise money for programs that provide relief and support for homeless mothers and children. Urban Legends is set inside the sprawling, 2,500-square-foot Cass Community United Methodist Church. Expect all manner of ghoul, ghost, hovering severed limb, and battery-less ringing cell phone upon entering the vast macabre underworld.
During each afterschool-tutoring session, children are given a healthful snack, such as baby carrots and apples, to keep them energized, to promote healthful-snacking habits, and to help keep the students properly nourished. Healthful foods such as fruits and vegetables can improve focus and cognitive function, but many of the program's attendees from low-income families lack ready access to them. For some students, these nutritious snacks will constitute the only meal they'll get that evening.
