It's the month of February and time to learn some Ojibwe language.  Today our puppet friends Natasha and Nana Boozhoo teach us NAMEBINI-GIIZIS "SUCKER-FISH MOON".  Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo is created by Michael Lyons and made possible on KAXE/KBXE by the MN Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Today we talked with Hollis Emery - Program Director & Youth & Individual Placement Programs with Conservation Corps of Minnesota and Iowa.  She told us about the opportunites for 18-25 year olds as well as students age 15-18. 

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday.

On the Morning Show today we welcomed Chris Fulton - Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation (GRACF) Executive Director to tell us about Giving Tuesday and the Community Foundations they manage that have matching grants from the Blandin Foundation.
