In November and December each year, our thoughts turn to giving. Thanks giving, and Giving Tuesday, and exchanging gifts during the holidays. The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is now called Giving Tuesday. This is the 4th year for Giving Tuesday. Here in Albion Michigan, there are some special places, events and activities that are made possible by gifts. We start with a pictorial representation of some of these special things, and then we will link the photo to more information about each one.  The online calendar now shows some special events from Marshall Public Schools, where many Albion young people attend school, and from Albion College, where there are special events at this time of year that are open to the public. Click on the heart (or here) to see a General Guide to Giving Tuesday in Albion.

Coming up in January and February, we will be featuring a bit of Albion and Marshall history, including Black History for February.
