It’s Event Friday on Michigan This Morning.

This week we have events that raise awareness to issues in the Northern Michigan area.

First–we have the North Country Community Mental Health Fun Walk.

The event is for autism acceptance on Saturday at Veterans Memorial Park in Boyne City. 

Registration starts at 9:00 a.m. with a $10 fee and the walk starts at 10:00. 

The walk is a half mile long and everyone will be entered in a drawing to get prizes. 

Next up–we have the Community Engagement in the Tip of The Mitt Conference.

The conference is hosted by the Northern Michigan History Consortium and will feature a day of speakers, panel discussions and roundtables. 

This event will help organizations find volunteers, donors and community support.
