Theatre Party in Charlevoix

Mediation Theater Party Charlevoix

Executive Director Jane Millar Ready to Greet Guests

On Monday, October 9, 2017, Northern Community Mediation (NCM) held its second annual Theatre Party in Charlevoix, Michigan. From 5:30pm to 6:45pm, attendees were able to enjoy appetizers that are sufficient to constitute dinner at East Park Tavern.

Additionally, through the generosity of local merchants, wonderful door prizes were given away: American Spoon Foods, AmericInn Lodge & Suites, Beards Brewery, Beaver Island Boat Company, Castle Farms, La Cantina, and Village Pub /Terry’s Place. There was also a 50 / 50 raffle.

Then, at 6:45pm everyone went to the Charlevoix Cinema and was able to choose seeing one of three movies showing at the theatre. All of this was for the low price of $25 per person. Quite a deal!

The 2017 Third Annual Theatre Party in Charlevoix has already been scheduled for Monday, October 8.
