Timeline PhotosJoin the Addiction Recovery Team (ART) in celebrating National Recovery Month!

Each September, tens of thousands participate in prevention, treatment, recovery programs and facilities around the country to celebrate Recovery Month along with tens of thousands of people. They speak about the gains made by those in recovery and share their success stories with their neighbors, friends, and colleagues. In doing so, everyone helps to increase awareness and furthers a greater understanding about the diseases of mental and substance use disorders.

Recovery Month also highlights the achievements of individuals who have reclaimed their lives in long-term recovery and honors the treatment and recovery service providers who make recovery possible. Recovery Month also promotes the message that recovery in all of its forms is possible and encourages citizens to take action to help expand and improve the availability of effective prevention, treatment, and recovery services for those in need.

Beginning September 1, 2020, ART will host a virtual 30 day challenge and needs your participation! Each day in September we ask you to join us in the movement to celebrate recovery, mindfulness, and show inspiration to others in their journeys. You can join us by, liking our page, participate each day by sharing your story along with a picture, and include #recoverymonthchallenge #oprfchallenge

Albion District Library

Albion District Library will remain closed for the next several weeks as we work with our insurance company and licensed contractors to address the water damage and mold that was discovered in late August. More information will be shared when the discovery phase is completed and remediation timelines are available.

Patrons are encouraged to visit and check out items from OverDrive, our digital collection, and asked to hold all returns, as staff are not onsite to empty the drop boxes. Library card expiration dates and item due dates have been extended until 10/15/2020. Curbside service will not be offered during this closure.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the health and safety of our staff and patrons, and the well-being of the library facility itself, are our highest priorities.

Even though the traditional Labor Day Albion - Walk the River Trail is canceled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Albion Recreation Department is inviting people to walk the Albion River Trail that day and to check out History Hill in Holland Park. Please bring your own water, wear a face mask, and practice social distancing.Walk the Albion River Trail

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will not be an official Labor Day Albion - Walk the River Trail event for 2020. Nevertheless, the Albion Recreation Department invites the public to get outdoors to enjoy the trail, and the historic displays at Holland Park this year.

Labor Day is a good day to take a free, self-guided walk along Albion’s scenic river trail. If you do come, please practice social distancing and bring your own face mask, water, bug repellent, phone, sunscreen, hiking shoes, etc.

Hikers are encouraged to stop by the beautiful displays at History Hill in Holland Park, near the corner of Cass Street and Albion Street, to read about the history of Albion’s West Ward School. The school closed in 1953, as students’ parents recognized the school as “separate but unequal” within the Albion school district. In previous years, the Labor Day event has included a special talk about History Hill in Holland Park. Walkers can still learn about how Albion’s leaders helped to improve educational segregation and disparities in Michigan, thanks to the historical markets installed at the park.

Check out more information about the prior years' Labor Day Albion – Walk the Trail, including maps and photos, at albionmich.net

The City of Albion does not assume any liability for trail hikers.

As many of you know, Albion has been discussing and identifying focus areas that have contributed to the racial barriers in our community. EDUCATION has been identified as a focus area. This past Thursday, Aaliyah Roberts & Belevia Stovall did an amazing job reiterating many of the sentiments expressed at their rally at Marshall High School to the attendees at the Unity meeting in Holland Park. I encourage ANY and ALL youth & parents to come out on Tuesday, June 30 at 6 PM in Holland Park to lead and participate in the discussion on the "education" focus topic. Please spread the word. Let's do the work!

Facial masks and social distancing are encouraged & expected.
Thanks.
