As we all begin to prepare for the colder/winter season, be aware that the need for boots is great with our homeless/indigent population in Isabella County. If you are planning to replace your old boots with new ones, be sure to donate those used boots to our “Share Your Soles” collection which will be delivered to Clothing, INC for distribution. You can deliver them to our box in the Fellowship Hall.
The Old Settlers of Mecosta, Montcalm, and Isabella Counties in Michigan started settling in the area in the early 1860s and by 1873, African-Americans owned 1,392 acres in the three counties. In the 1860's most of the land in Remus was owned by the Old Settlers. Come learn about the Old Settlers by attending the following two events sponsored by the Anti-Racism Task Force.
