Care Net Pregnancy Center in Sault Ste. Marie, Mi.
Hi everyone, this is Jenny Boyce, Fred and I traveled on Friday, January 15th, to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to visit the Care Net Pregnancy Center located at 1420 Ashmun St. for our second live remote in honor of sanctity of life month. Noel Rupprecht is the Executive Director there and Deb Kobes is the Center Director. They have a wonderful operation there which serves not only the Soo, but all of the Eastern UP. Noel said her long term goal is to obtain a van that would enable them to travel to the outlying smaller towns and take the mobile ultra sound machine to them and visit the girls, since travel in the winter months is so difficult, and the next nearest facility is in Marquette. They have added a beautiful medical wing and a “baby mart” for the mothers to shop for baby items which they earn points for attending classes and doing other things. Noel treated Fred and I to pizza from Upper Crust Pizza, we had a loaded baked potato pizza with a white sauce, and a margherita pizza that were totally amazing!! If only they would deliver to Gaylord!! Brick Oven Pizza at its best, we highly recommend it! We traveled home in the freezing rain and slush and it was a little scary! We are so blessed to be out in our listening area and meeting all these wonderful friends. Thank you so much for supporting the Care Net Pregnancy Center, we are asking everyone to continue to drop off donations through the end of January and we look forward to going to East Tawas next!!!
