Wednesday, Jan. 29 7 to 8:30 p.m.
We've lined up Detroit area singer-songwriter Matt Watroba to come to Unity of Blue Water for a community sing!
We saw him do this at Thumbfest in Lexington last summer and thought it would be a perfect thing to do at Unity.
No admission but a love offering will be collected to help cover the cost.
