In The Spotlight
Christine Robere of the United Way of the Lakeshore joins us today to talk about the recovery efforts underway in Muskegon County as we settle back in to "normal" while keeping in mind that there are still vaccination clinics happening and that you can get one set up through Public Health - Muskegon County with a phone call for your group. Bipartisan work happening to make quality childcare affordable and accessible in Michigan. The Youth Employment Program is getting underway in Muskegon. The Boys and Girls Club of the Lakeshore has a new home that is not open for young people and if you need help of any kind, it's as simple as a call to 2-1-1.
As we sat it out last year, and "it" meaning all of it, we were all given a chance to see just how important all of the extra added things we love in Muskegon meant to us. Everything and everyone took a hit when it comes to the events that fill our hearts and our streets..and for some, our pocket books. It's in the rearview for the most part now and getting back to the fun stuff....well, it's a welcome sigh of relief to everyone.
Innovation. We're really good at it in Muskegon and even through a pandemic, we have all managed to pitch in were needed, dig a little deeper and make sure that the crucial needs were met. That is what sets our town a part from everyone else and that too is why we take such great pride in helping those who help others. Even those among us who walk on paws and have tails.
