Empire hosts potluck, Santa

Get your favorite dish together for the annual Holiday Potluck Dinner starting at 5 p.m. Saturday at the Empire Township Hall, with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus making an appearance at 6 p.m. Ham, coffee, lemonade and hot chocolate will be provided. Bring a dish to pass, your own place setting and a non-perishable food item to donate to the Empire Area Food Bank. Donations can also be made to the Empire Area Community Center, which sponsors the yearly potluck.

Weigh in on recreation center

To pool or not to pool? The community center bond proposal will be on the agenda at a special meeting being held at 5 p.m. Monday by the Suttons Bay Schools Board of Education. The meeting will take place in the elementary school open space. At issue is a $15 to $17 million center with a pool and space for other recreational activities that would be built in the space now occupied by the middle school.

Dance away the solstice

Put your dancing shoes on and head to the new Village Arts Building in Northport from 7-10 p.m. next Thursday, Dec. 22, for the Winter Solstice Dance that is a fundraiser for the Northport Arts Association for audio-visual equipment and a large screen TV. The band Hoop 'N Holler, made up of a group of Northport musicians, will perform. Refreshments will be served at the dance that will hopefully be an annual event. Admission is free, though a donation is appreciated.
