December 19, 2016 – It’s that Holiday time of year again….
I sincerely hope that everybody has a wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwaanza, whatever it is you celebrate this time of year with your friends and family. Please be sure and give of your time and wallet, whatever is within your means, to local charities such as Habitat For Humanity, Brother Dan’s Food Pantry (at St. Francis Xavier here in Petoskey), Manna, Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, Emmet County Hospice, or whatever local charities that are near and dear to your heart. Most of us are extremely lucky, and it’s our duty (and the right thing to do) to give to others who are in need, especially at this time of year. Just make sure it’s not ONLY this time of year that you do so. Give. It feels good, it makes the world a better place, and strengthens your community.
The Mackinac Island Songwriters Workshop and Big Water Creative Arts, Inc. will have a busy year coming up. Many events planned, and we’re going to be expanding our reach with more songwriting workshops for local middle and high school age kids in northern Michigan, and hopefully soon, around the state. Keep your eyes peeled, and if you’d like to be on our mailing list, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be sure to put you on the mailing list.
