The city of Algoma is planning a community-wide celebration for the end of October after receiving one of eight Culture of Health prizes awarded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The city was recognized by the foundation for its efforts through the Live Algoma initiative for pursuing innovative ideas to improve the overall health of the community. Prior to attending Wednesday’s ceremony in New Jersey, Algoma Superintendent Nick Cochart says the award is something the entire community can get behind.
The city and Live Algoma will host a celebration in honor of the recognition from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 28 at the high school.
