A day of celebration is planned for Saturday to honor the City of Algoma’s recent recognition as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize recipient. Algoma was one of just eight communities in the county to earn the award, which took into account the large strides the community has taken to improve the health of its citizens. Algoma Superintendent Nick Cochart says members of the Live Algoma Initiative have worked hard over the last two years to make a difference in the community and want to thank everyone for their role in the program’s success.
The free event, which includes free food, family activities, and entertainment, runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Algoma High School and its Community Wellness Center.
