UPCOMING EVENTS!

Home Fire Preparedness
If a fire starts in your home, you may have just two minutes to escape. The American Red Cross is partnering with the local fire department to install smoke alarms in your home. If you would like one installed in your home and live in Emmet County, please contact the Council on Aging at (231) 347-3211 or (888) 347-0369 to be put on the sign-up list. 

Veterans Coffee and Donut Hour
A coffee and donut hour for veterans who served for any time period in any branch of service takes place on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. at the Petoskey Friendship Center. Connect with other veterans and share stories and experiences or just talk about the news of the day while enjoying complimentary coffee and donuts. The donuts are courtesy of Johan's Bakery.

This program provides some assistance to meet emergency needs for seniors, age 60 and older, residing in Emmet County. If you need help with health related expenses, medications not covered by an insurance plan, safety and welfare needs, or even emergency home repairs, please call (231) 347-3211 or toll-free at (888) 347-0369.
