Please join us, let your voices be heard and your smiles be appreciated on Thursday, Sept. 21 at our seventh annual Recovery Walk. This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Strengthen Families and Communities,” encourages communities to be socially inclusive, offering those in need of recovery support the chance to seek help, lend a hand, and contribute to their community as citizens, parents, employees, students, volunteers, and leaders.

Communities can improve the lives of those in recovery by extending opportunities for meaningful daily activities, such as jobs, school, volunteerism, family care-taking or creative endeavors. Local communities can play a significant role in supporting those in recovery as they gain the independence, income and resources necessary to fully participate in society. Please come out and show your support.

If you have any questions, please call Sault Tribe Behavioral Health, 906-635-6075, or Pat McKelvie at Sault Tribal Court, 906-635-4963.

I look forward to seeing each and every one of your smiling faces!

P.S. We could use a few more volunteers at the Big Bear.
