January is Stalking Awareness Month....
The Sault Tribe Advocacy Resource Center in collaboration with the Marquette Women’s Center is organizing this event to bring awareness to stalking. Information, giveaways, and refreshments will be available in the lodges. We thought this would be a fun way to get out and spread the word about stalking and what you can do to protect yourself and others. Those that do not wish to snowshoe are welcome to join us at the lodge.

Events will be held:
Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Al Quaal Lodge in Ishpeming from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Friday, Jan. 27 at Valley Spur in Munising from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Snowshoes will be provided for those that do not have their own.

For more information please contact:
Alisha Young, Marquette Women’s Center at 906-225-1346 ext. 207 or Stacy King, Sault Tribe Advocacy Resource Center at 906-341-9506.
