Comedian Jon Fisher

A singing comedian! “Jon Fisher’s songs cover topics ranging from the frustrations of roommates and college to his man crush on Ryan Gosling to his desire to be a “motivational DJ”. His acoustic, pop, and hip hop comedic stylings combine social commentary, observational humor, pop-culture references, and character-driven acts put on a performance that’s great for all ages.”
Join us on October 1st at 9pm in the MUB Ballroom.

Volunteers Needed

Copper Country Habitat for Humanity is looking for VolunteersI am looking for volunteers for Saturday Sept 25.4-6 volunteers are needed. We work from 9 am – 3 pm and lunch will be provided. If you have some spare time or some volunteer time that you need to do, Please consider helping  at Copper Country Habitat for Humanity.  
We have had many MTU students in the past being a part of our build.  Take some time and give back to the community. It would be greatly appreciated and a good feeling doing something good for a family in need. 
18 Sixth St in South Range is where the build is.   If you haven’t been there to lend a hand, this Saturday might be the time to do something different and helpful for our local community. No experience is needed.  We have supervisors that will provide instruction to what is needed. Give back to the community by volunteering to build a house for a family in need. 
One last thing, You MUST be vaccinated to keep everyone safe. 
If you are interested, please contact me at I Look forward to hearing from you.
