The board of directors of Positive Directions will celebrate her retirement and her contributions to the mental health and addiction counseling center on Wednesday June 3, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm in Saugatuck Congregational Church’s Fellowship Room.

Members of the public are invited to attend. Please RSVP to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Board members are also assembling a book of tributes to Hauhuth and those who would like to contribute are asked to send them to the same address.

In addition those who would like to honor her and her work can make a donation to Positive Directions, in her name. With state and federal funding for Positive Direction’s work diminishing each year, the board said it relies heavily on tax-deductible donations to make up the shortfall.
