Central Office Hours

We are open MON//WED/FRI from 12p-5p.  MASKS ARE REQUIRED.  We also request 1 person in the retail space at a time in addition to our volunteer.   Thank you for your cooperation.  If you feel sick or have tested positive for COVID,  we ask that you not enter the office.  Please feel free to order online and we will deliver.

New Website

We have been working on changing our name for some time to “Northern Michigan Central Office.”  Our most recent change is our new website name:   “nmcentraloffice.org.”  If you look up the old address, you will be redirected.

Our email contact is now info@nmcentraloffice.org.  For Camel Courier submissions and subscriptions, email us at camelcourier@nmcentraloffice.org.

10/24 Memorial Service for Ed Van

Our beloved Ed Van Leishout – “Ed Van” – passed away on 9/19.  With 45 years sober, Ed Van helped so many people get and stay sober.  You could usually find him at the Alano Club, always with a fresh and warm sense of humor toward all, and a loving caring heart.  We will miss our friend.  There will be a memorial service honoring him on October 24 at Grace Episcopal Church at 11am (visitation for an hour prior).  Join others at www.reynolds-jonkhoff.com to share your thoughts and memories with other loved ones.
