SAULT STE. MARIE – The 10th annual “Dancing with the Stars” for Hospice of the EUP, originally slated as an October reunion show at Dream Makers Theater, has been postponed to March 19, 2021.

“Dancing with the Stars” is an annually sold-out fund-raiser critical to the Hospice of the EUP operating budget. The 2019 event raised a record $50,000.

This year’s DWTS has been postponed due to COVID-19. Hospice of the EUP prioritized the health and safety of instructors, participants and spectators.

“My appreciation goes out to our dance instructors, who have altered their schedules in order to continue volunteering for this event,” DWTS coordinator MaryJo Duvall said. “They are a talented group, and with this extra time to prep, we expect nothing but an amazing show that you won’t want to miss.

Duvall added that the Nov. 21 craft and vendor show at the Sault Middle School has been canceled.

The new American Legion tribal veterans service officer for the EUP, Dylan Moiles, recently announced his office schedule for meeting with veterans or their families. He is in Hessel on Mondays, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Sault Ste. Marie on Tuesdays, Tribal Health Clinic, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but for now he’s based at the VA Clinic; and in St. Ignace on Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Moiles recently completed service officer training through the VA. A Sault Tribe member, he served in the Marine Corps with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
