Not 4 MJ Retail

From the website: “Citizens Against Marijuana Retail In Petoskey is a grassroots group of local residents who are concerned about the impact of THC-marijuana retail on young minds; vulnerable adults; surrounding businesses; and the character of the community as a family-oriented destination. We are an official local ballot-question committee, registered with Emmet County, and entirely made up of volunteers from our community. The committee will enable us to raise funds to cover the costs of the petition drive and campaign for public awareness.”

The vote for this ballot question will be on March 10, 2020. As the City of Petoskey is the county seat of Emmet County, the outcome of this election is important and far-reaching.

The First Thanksgiving

Pro-Life Social Movement Congregates

Today’s Life Chain, on US 131 and Sheridan in Petoskey, attracted a diverse crowd of about 50 people. The purpose of the chain is for Americans (holding appropriate placards) to publicly, prayerfully stand for babies who have lost their lives to abortion. The Life Chain takes place along designated sidewalks or high-traffic areas for one hour on October 6th. Pastor Rusty Chatfield, ECRP executive board member, pictured near the PP sign, participated. #lifeisabeautifulchoice
