District 1 with Sandy BredahlThis month, I shine a spotlight on Angela Rickett & the Ludington Area Jaycees.

This year has thrown so many events into the wind and having to be creative where needed. The Ludington Area Jaycees made a proposal to keep their Freedom Festival going, but not in the traditional sense.
