HAUNTED TRAILS ON MMCC’S HARRISON CAMPUS
Mid Michigan Community College’s Harrison campus offers 3 miles of walking and 15 miles of mountain biking trails, which are always open to the public.  Every year, the college hosts races on them, and runners and bikers wind through acres of woods and clearings.
But, in October, these trails will offer community members something very different—because on six different evenings, MMCC’s trails will be haunted.
This is the fourth year that MMCC’s Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society will host the Deadwood Grove Haunted Trails.  Trails will be open October 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, and 31 from 7-10PM.
The cost to attend is $7/person or $5 for children 12 and under.  Proceeds from this student-run event will be used to support MMCC’s Honor Society programming and general student activities at the college.
For more information about the Haunted Trails events at MMCC, contact Tammy Alvaro at 989.386.6634 or talvaro@midmich.edu.  To learn more about the college’s public trail systems and to view or print trail maps, visit midmich.edu/trails or contact Tiffani Lewis at 989.386.6651.

DISCUSSION ON RESTORING PASSENGER TRAIN SERVICE
Chris Bagwell will lead a discussion on restoring passenger train service between Ann Arbor and Traverse City Oct. 10 during a monthly meeting of the Michigan Association of Railroad Passengers in Mt. Pleasant.
Bagwell is executive vice president and general manager of the Great Lakes Central Railroad that is contemplating passenger rail on what had been the historic Ann Arbor Railroad route that Great Lakes currently uses to move freight.
His talk will begin roughly at 10:15 a.m. at the CMU Research Corporation building, 2625 Denison Drive, inside the business development park.
Erin Strang, president  and CEO of the CMU Research Corporation, will lead a discussion on instituting a local shuttle service in Mt. Pleasant.
A survey conducted by the Center for Resilient Communities, formerly known as the Michigan Land Use Institute in Traverse City, shows wide support for passenger rail between Ann Arbor and Traverse City. Name of the rail study is A2TC and would be popular among college students and tourists.
