When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace. – Dalai Lama
Wherever there is a human in need, there is an opportunity for kindness and to make a difference. – Kevin Heath, CEO More4kids
The March issue of Our Journey is packed with helpful information and links. March is Parenting Awareness Month, National Nutrition Month, and a look ahead at Great Michigan Reads April activities. Take a look!
Stay up to date with our “do-er” group by reading the February 2014 Action Group minutes. People who receive services at Northern Lakes are welcome to attend at any time. Our next meeting will be videoconferenced from Traverse City, Houghton Lake and Cadillac – always the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to noon. The next date is Wednesday, March 12.
The Friends of the Cadillac Wexford Public Library are teaming up with Northern Lakes CMH to present a Lunch, Listen and Learn program to recognize the 2013-2014 Great Michigan Read, Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey Into a Family Secret, by journalist and Detroit native Steve Luxenberg.
Annie’s Ghosts is about a son who learns after his mother’s death about the existence of his mother’s sister. In uncovering Annie’s story he learns more about other family secrets, the history of state hospitals, the Michigan mental health system, the legal system, and his family’s journey to America.
Featured speakers will include Beverly Preston-Weekley, Certified Peer Support Specialist at Northern Lakes CMH. Beverly had a 20-year career with General Motors before moving up north. Along her life’s journey she learned how a traumatic incident during her teen years, followed by a hospital stay, affected her life.
The luncheon program will be held Saturday, February 15, 2014, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Lakeside Charlie’s (M-115 and M-55) in Cadillac. Tickets are available at the door for $12 for Cadillac Wexford Public Library Friends and $15 for Non-Members, and includes buffet lunch, soft/drink/coffee, and dessert. Non-Members will automatically be enrolled for a one-year Friends membership. For information call Rosemary at (231) 876-3246.
