Old man winter is out and mild spring temperatures are in. Whether the weather is hot or cold, the Customer Services Department plans exciting events, classes and trainings for consumers. Consumers are always excited to attend annual events. Special events in May include the Walk-A-Mile Rally for mental health advocacy in Lansing on May 10. The registration deadline for Walk-A-Mile is Friday, May 5th. The Peter F. Saddington for Mental Health Dance is scheduled May 19th from 6-9 at the Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center.
