IRON MOUNTAIN – Area seniors are invited to meet Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson and learn about new senior citizen programs she has implemented during a town hall meeting with state Rep. Ed McBroom on Wednesday, April 16.

McBroom and Johnson will be at the Dickinson County Library in Iron Mountain from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.
