Someplace Warm Camp

The Purple Martin's Someplace Warm Camp will be happening on August 22-24 at Camp Chickagami on Lake Esau. The camp is for school aged children who are in foster homes, separated from family members or living in a single parent home.

The kids will be able to participate in activities such as bonfires, star-gazing, swimming, fishing and creating arts and crafts.

Anyone can volunteer to help out with the camp and those involved with the Purple Martin organization have been working all year long to raise money so that every child can attend the camp for free.

Each child must be accompanied by an adult while they attend the camp and hopfully this will be a bonding experience for every child and their guardian.

The applications to sign up for the camp are open until August 8th; if you would like an application or to volunteer, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

ARMC's Future

Alpena Regional Medical Center is looking into possibilities for the hospital's future.

The hospital has options of staying independent, forming an affiliation with another health care system and all choices in between.

ARMC has hired the consultant firm Juniper Advisory to find what the best solution is to providing health care in Northeast Michigan.

Juniper Advisory will interview members and staff throughout the hospital to explore what the community needs and wants for health care and the possible objectives.

ARMC Board Chair Eric Smith says the entire project is estimated to take about a year but could be shortened or extended for more research.
