Land clearance as seen in the above aerial photo, is the first step toward the future Joseph F. Buhr Memorial Park in Pittsfield township. The 54-acre plot of land has been cleared of trash and brush, has been plowed and, next year, will be planted in wheat to keep the land in good condition until park and playground development begins in the distant future. The land is part of the Robert Campbell farm. The barn is clearly visible. The sire has a 964-foot frontage on Packard Rd. and extends back one-half mile. The monetary gift for the property was donated by the Buhr Machine & Tool Co. here and the R & B Tool Co. of Saline. The park is to be in the memory of the late founder of Buhr Machine & Tool Co.

Park Band Opens Summer Season: The Ann Arbor Park band, sponsored by Joseph F. Buhr of the Buhr Machine Tool Co., opened its summer season last night with a concert in West Park. The band, directed by D. C. Ryan, is shown playing from the orchestra shell for a gathering of music lovers sitting on benches and on the grass. Present plans call for a series of six Sunday evening concerts by the band, which is composed of both union and non-union musicians employed in Ann Arbor, many of them at the Buhr plant. The band was organized last summer by Mr. Buhr for the benefit of both music-lovers and musicians.
