MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena volunteer Jeanne Nowak has pinned the 2021 angel on the lapel of President Chuck Sherwin. The angel pinning is a 46-year tradition for the volunteers that kicks off the sale of the pins in the gift shop and out in the community. Customers return year after year to obtain the new design; the year’s pin features a hummingbird angel.

Nowak has been a dedicated volunteer at the Medical Center for 16 years. She has been an instrumental in many services roles including Chairperson of the Koeze Nut Sale, Gift Corner candy buyer and fundraising coordinator.

All proceeds from angel pin sales support new technology and patient services at the Medical Center.
