Recovery Music Event Makes Its Debut in Petoskey

A new program kicked off their first event Sunday night.

The goal is to help people on the path to recovery have a fun night while being supported.

Recovery N.O.T.E.S. held their first event at the Red Sky Stage in Petoskey.

N.O.T.E.S. stands for New Opportunities to Enjoy Sobriety.

Organizers say the event will take place the second Sunday of each month until June.

Performances include music, comedy, and more.

One volunteer says they wanted to create a place where people could come together and not just in a meeting.

“It gives them a positive place to with people of the same mindset. Some people might have the belief once they get into recovery, there’s no fun to be had but that’s not true. It will show the community these people are good productive as well” performer and volunteer Steven Garfield said.

Also said the debut of Recovery N.O.T.E.S. was a great success as over 100 people came out.
