Interested in hearing some of Michigan’s most gripping true-crime tales from the past 50 years? Then don’t miss The Washtenaw 100’s annual fundraising dinner, open to the paying public, on Thursday, October 20.
This regional nonprofit charitable organization, founded in 1971, supports the county’s law enforcement officers and firefighters, their families, and their departments.
Retired FBI agent and author Greg Stejskal, who lives in Ann Arbor, will be the dinner’s guest speaker. Stejskal’s 2021 book FBI Case Files Michigan: Tales of a G-Man vividly tells of notable cases he investigated during his nearly 32 years as a Special Agent in the FBI’s Detroit Division. Attendees can expect Stejskal to share some of his most challenging and exciting FBI experiences in his talk at The Washtenaw 100’s dinner. He will tell of the courage of those that uphold the mission of the FBI to “protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States.”
Says Stejskal, “Whether it’s the Bureau or local law enforcement and fire fighters, we’re all looking to help protect and foster a safe and healthy environment. As we work together as a community, we can continue to secure that.”
