Jennifer Gezequel, Sanilac County Child Abuse Prevention Council Coordinator, and Matt Gezequel, Director of Port Sanilac Public Safety, will be the presenters at the June 2016, Healthy Lifestyle Workshop, scheduled for Monday, June 27, at 5:30 p.m. in the McKenzie Health System Dining Room at 120 N.
