Bloomer Ski Jump History To Be Presented

The next meeting of the Rochester Avon Historical Society on Thursday, February 4 will feature Penny Frank Reddish, who will present a history of the Bloomer ski jump, in its day the highest ski jump in lower Michigan. Penny is descended from the Frank and Newberry families, pioneers of the Rochester area, and her family sold the land on Newberry Hill to the builders of the ski jump. She will share photos, family documents and ski jump memorabilia during her presentation.

Remembering Rochester featured a post about the ski jump last year, but that article only provided a brief introduction to the topic. To hear the rest of the story, be sure to attend the Rochester Avon Historical Society meeting on February 4 at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the Rochester Hills Public Library, 500 Old Towne Road. The program is free and open to the public.
