The Michigan BBYO board of
directors will hold an open house
at 11 a.m. Sunday in recognition
of the near completion of the re-
novation and expansion of the
Charles and Florence MIlan
BBYO Conference Centre in Bell
River, Ont. Transportation will be
offered by chartered bus from the
BBYO office in Southfield at 9:30
a.m., and is by reservation only.
The new facility will now offer
overnight housing for 42 persons,
expanded facilities and a large
multi-purpose room. The original
center was a gift of the Milans to
the B'nai B'rith Youth Organiza-
tion in 1969, and since that time
AZA and BBG chapters have used
the facility for weekend retreats
and programming in all interest
areas — religious, cultural, com-
munity service, social and ath-
In addition, the Milan Centre
has become the home of BBYO's
special leadership training pro-
grams for Michigan Region —
Executive Weekend in June and
the VIP Leadership Camp for
chapter presidents in August.
• The chairman for the open
house is Alan Nathan, who along
with Milan Centre co-chairman
David Bittker have overseen the
recent renovation and expansion
of the center. Ida Stein, BBYO
board vice chairman, will coordi-
nate hospitality for the open
Since the center's dedication in
September 1970, a new wing was
added to the building and the
entire structure was renovated to
provide for a meeting area and a
dining area. The result was a
facility that accommodated 28
persons in bunk-style beds dis-
tributed in six sleeping areas. The
center is located 20 miles east of
Windsor, Ont., directly on Lake
St. Clair, in Belle River.
In the 14 years of the center's
existence, numerous AZA and
BBG chapters have shared the
experience of what has come to be
called "Milan Weekends." Each
group, with about 12-13 BBYOers
and their chapter adviser, has
planned the entire weekend's ac-
tivities which they then share
with another chapter. The groups
plan for their own transportation,
meals and programming.
A "Milan Weekend" will nor-
mally feature all three services
for the Sabbath, a Jewishly-
oriented .Oneg Shabbat program
on,Friday night, recreational and
cultural programs on Satur l?
and a social program on Saturda
night. The Milan Weekend has
forded BBYO members the oppa
tunity to learn how to plan meii ,
programming events, and man
chapter Milan chairmen hav
gone on to both chapter leadershi
and to Council offices and chair
The state-wide Council level(
BBYO uses the conference cent('
for two important leadersh:
training programs. Each year i
June, newly-elected Counc
executives go to Milan for the
executive weekend, in which th
previous year's activities ar
evaluated, the new year's goa]
The current expansion progra:
will result in a multi-purpoE
room big enough to serve both as
dining hall and for recreatio
programing, such as Israeli d-lr ,
ing, new games, etc. Also in tt
contruction plans are three r -
bedrooms, adding 14 additiona
beds to the center's capacity, a .
additional bathroom, and renov
tion of existing bathrool
