Algoma city and school district officials are hoping for a big turnout for a community celebration of the recent Culture of Health Prize awarded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
The event has been scheduled for 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Community Wellness Center inside Algoma High School, 1715 Division St.
A free lunch will be served along with family activities and music.
The RWJF Culture of Health Prize recognizes communities that have placed a priority on health and are creating powerful partnerships and deep commitments that will enable everyone, especially those facing the greatest challenges, with the opportunity to live well.
It comes with a $25,000 gift that the community can do with as it sees fit, but Teal VanLanen, Live Algoma coordinator, told the Algoma School Board that the most valuable part of the award may be the opportunity to network and share ideas with other prize-winning communities.
