In light of the devastation caused by last week's weather, we've decided to postpone our alumni event, which was to be held on Thursday, June 28, at the Magnuson Hotel Franklin Square in Houghton. We are instead focusing our attention on how best the university can help people in need right now.
NMU is in conversation with recovery officials, and we'll be taking our lead from them on where our efforts will be best spent. We'll provide more information as details are finalized. The food planned for our reception will instead be donated to volunteer crews as a token of our appreciation and a show of support.
We will be updating our Facebook and Twitter with where we will be next week. As fellow Wildcats and Yoopers, our thoughts and hearts are with all of our friends in the Keweenaw peninsula at this time.
Thursday, June 28 at 5:15pm to 7:30pm
