Fortune Lake senior day set for Sept. 10

CRYSTAL FALLS — Area senior citizens are invited to a special senior day at Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp Monday, Sept. 10. The event will begin with fellowship time at 10 a.m. in the camp dining hall.

The morning session will welcome the Rev. Vicky Prewitt, still remembered as Vicky Crystal, former morning news broadcaster on TV6. Prewitt has moved to Crystal Falls, where she is serving as pastor of Christ United Methodist Church.

At 1 p.m. Elizabeth Benyi of Voters Not Politicians will explain the non-partisan issue of gerrymandering, which will be addressed as Proposal 2 on the November ballot.

According to Benyi, “Proposal 2 aims to end gerrymandering in Michigan by forming an independent citizens’ redistricting commission. This will be a discussion on what gerrymandering is, how it affects the ability of the voters’ choice, and how Proposal 2 will change this.”

To make lunch reservations, call the camp office at 906-214-2267 by Thursday.

Requested donation is $10.

No reservation is needed to attend only the afternoon gerrymandering discussion.

Fortune Lake Lutheran Camp is on U.S. 2 about 3 miles west of Crystal Falls.
