Help Ozone House Celebrate 45 Years Of Youth Services

ANN ARBOR - Join the thousands of community members and Michigan youth as they celebrate the 45 year anniversary of Ozone House and its efforts towards helping youth lead safe, healthy and productive lives.

The Backyard Birthday Bash will take place from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, June 1 at Ozone House in Ann Arbor, located at 1705 Washtenaw Ave. Plan to get wet and have fun with your loved ones by taking advantage of the dunk tank, face painting, music and of course plenty of sugary summertime sweets like lemonade and cotton candy. Festivities are for all ages and are free and open to the public.

"This is our way of saying thank you to our friends and neighbors for their unwavering support, and to welcome back all of the volunteers, staff and clients who have made Ozone House such a special place over the years," said Ozone House Development Director Heather Steenrod.

The Backyard Birthday Bash is sponsored by Zingerman's Roadhouse, Zingerman's Creamery, Mighty Good Coffee Roasting Co. and Go Ice Cream, who will be showcasing a brand new ice cream flavor created specifically for the 45th anniversary.

As the only youth shelter in Washtenaw County, Ozone House provides housing and safety for young kids who have run away from household conflict or were kicked out of their homes.

Revealing Bigotry: Taking On Gary Glenn

In a Sept. 27 op-ed in the Detroit News, conservative Republican columnist Nolan Finley raised serious concerns about three Republican candidates running for the state house Nov. 4. Todd Courser of Lapeer, Cindy Gamrat of Plainwell and Gary Glenn of Midland -- all correctly identified by Finley as a "trio (who) seeks tea party tyranny." Nolan describes Glenn and Courser as "extremely anti-gay (who) would turn the Republican Party into a fundamentalist denomination of the Christian Church if given the chance." Finley warned that the trio's narrow views on the Legislature could cripple the government and its ability to work across the aisle to move the state forward. Their agenda also includes killing any expansion of the Elliot-Larsen act to include LGBT protections.
