General Guide November 2016


The General Guide XXI will be distributed to all students in the Marshall Public Schools, Albion College and in the Morning Star the weekend of October 29. This flier will also be distributed in the Advisor & Chronicle to every home in the city of Marshall. The General Guide shares special event news between both communities.


This issue has music events including band concerts, orchestra and choral by Albion College and Marshall students. Home games for both schools are listed, as well as the new indoor Farmers Markets in both Albion and Marshall.


The biggest event listed is “Giving Tuesday,” that follows Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday, now in its fourth year nationally, grew as a response to commercialism and consumerism in the post Thanksgiving Season.


The Guide has photos of projects and events that were made possible through donations. Now with Giving Tuesday, it is easier than ever to a philanthropist. Instructions on how to participate locally with Giving Tuesday, and links to the official Giving Tuesday site, will be available along with other streaming news and the online calendar at www.

The online version of the calendar has links to official news about the events listed.

This issue had a print run of 15,000 thanks to sponsor Albion Community Foundation. For a printable version of General Guide XXI please click on one of these images.
