Alpena folks made me proud with marches
ALPENA HOSTS TWO PROTEST MARCHES IN ONE WEEK
Alpena has always been a caring and empathetic community, but my heart was overflowing with pride this week as its citizenry took to the streets to demonstrate their compassion and concern for the black and brown members of this country.
This was done with not one march but with two — both of which were both positive and highly successful. Kudos and a special thank you to the remarkable young people who organized the first march, to Marie Fielder, who single-handedly organized the second, and to the police, for their support and concern for safety.
While I’ve always loved living here, this town only seems to get better and better. Again, thank you Alpena!
