The Antrim County High Tea for Breast Cancer Prevention was held on Monday, at the Pelican Room, in Central Lake. All tables were decorated in a variety of beautiful, motifs. This Mardi Gras table, proved to be a real attention getter, as were the table's occupants.Ed Huller, president of the board of directors for the 501C3, all volunteer, organization, addressed those in attendance and informed them of the progress ACHT has made, since the first high tea was held in 2004. Since then, the number of low income/ uninsured women who've received a mammogram, has grown form 40, that year, to 215 in 2010. He also noted, "that according to the National Cancer Institute, over the last three years, Antrim County's mortality rate has dropped from 1st in the state of Michigan, down to 33rd in the state" he credits the High Tea's programs, in partnership with the Health Department of Northwest Michigan, and Munson Medical Center with having an impact, on the change in these statistics. He also reminded everyone, that "State cutbacks are creating significant, new challenges in serving those in need." Benediction was sung by Catherine Belcher, of Kalkaska and Dr. Charles Weitz, Director of MHC Smith Family Breast Health Center at Copper Ridge, was the guest speaker.
