I would like to commend the participants who attended the Wednesday night, July 17, 2013, Alpena Regional Medical Center sponsored Community Health Ride. ARMC recognizes physical activity as a key component of a healthy lifestyle. Despite the heat we had a great turnout and a fun ride on the Northeast State Trail. Gerry and Trevor from the Cobblestone Cyclery Bike Shop deserve special recognition for their generous donation of the bicycle which made the pre-ride raffle very exciting. ARMC would like to invite you to the next Community Health Walks on Aug. 21, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. at Island Park and on Sept. 18, 2013 at Washington Street Park.
