Monroe County Community College 50th Anniversary Marked with Tree Planting at Homewood

Homewood had the pleasure of hosting representatives of Monroe County Community College for a facility tour, tree planting and luncheon on a gorgeous October afternoon to commemorate the college’s 50th anniversary. Led by Dr. Kojo Quartey – MCCC’s president, Ramona Fisher – the coordinator of annual giving and alumni affairs and Kari Jenkins – an artist from the office of marketing and communications. The event was also attended by Allison Buber and Alice Roop – sales consultants from the Monroe News.

Homewood’s vice president of sales and marketing Mark Dubuc and sales representative Dan Curson provided an overview and tour, focusing on our full breadth of offline marketing capabilities. A highlight was the new Heidelberg Linoprint press, which provides short-run, fast turnaround solutions for clients seeking high-end color and inline bindery options to meet time-sensitive deadlines.

The feature of the afternoon was the tree planting ceremony, the first by Homewood to observe a special occasion of a customer or outstanding community organization. After joining Dr. Quartey to ceremoniously backfill dirt at the base of the tree, Mark Dubuc remarked: “Today, the planting of this tree marks a huge milestone of one of our area’s great institutions of higher learning. As it grows over the coming decades, it will continually serve as a reminder of Monroe County Community College’s ongoing commitment to education – enriching lives in our community and beyond.” A white pine, the Michigan state tree, was selected to honor MCCC.

The day’s festivities concluded with lunch at a popular local eatery.
