GETTING READY FOR THE WEEKEND!

It’s shaping up to be one of those good ol’ Upper Michigan weekends!  The marquee event this weekend is the annual Winter Carnival goings on on the campus of Michigan Technological University in Houghton, but if that’s not to your liking, you can take in the Ice Climbing Festival at Pictured Rocks Lakeshore near Munising that runs through Sunday.  Of course, there’s the Rotary Pancake Breakfast on Super Bowl Sunday at the YMCA of Marquette County on Sunday morning and it’s all wrapped up by the Super Bowl on Sunday night!  Whew!  We should be tired out on Monday morning!


CHOWIN’ DOWN TO HELP THE UNFORTUNATE!

BRAD PEPIN FROM NMU.

Brad Pepin, with the Northern Michigan University Culinary Arts Department stopped in this week to tell us about a special fundraising dinner being held this Friday at the Jacobetti Commons on campus at NMU.  The buffet-style dinner will feature Haitian foods and all proceeds raised will be used to assist orphans and orphanages in Haiti that were impacted by the recent devastating earthquake that destroyed a major portion of the nation.  To listen to Brad’s interview and to find out more about the event, click “HERE“.  For more about the NMU Culinary Arts Program, please click “HERE“!

GET ON OUT AND TAKE IT IN!

Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you all on Monday!  Don’t party too much this weekend and be a news story for the show!


CHEERS!
