CCCI Hosts Warming Center and Tea Party
Covenant Christian Center International (CCCI) in Mount Clemens hosted a warming center April 10-16 and sponsored a tea party for homeless women. The approximately 20 women who attended were able to choose a gown to wear, were greeted with pampering kits and given some practical items as well. The ladies were served tea and pastries. They were also treated to an acapella worship song in Spanish.

Hospital Approved for Specialty Care Beds
McLaren Macomb's Family Birthing Unit applied and has been approved for eight licensed specialty care beds after obtaining a certificate of need from the State of Michigan. The added beds will allow the Family Birthing Unit to care for babies who have been born at 32 weeks of pregnancy or greater and to stabilize babies prior to 32 weeks until transfer is available to a specialized facility. McLaren Macomb is the only facility in the McLaren Health Care system with specialty care nursery beds.

Zoo Opens Penguin Center 
The Detroit Zoo unveiled the Polk Penguin Conservation Center on April 18.  It houses more than 80 gentoo, macaroni and rockhopper penguins.  The 33,000 square-foot, $30 million center offers the penguins 10 times the amount of water than in their former habitat.  An underwater gallery with a vast acrylic window and two acrylic tunnels provides views of the penguins from all angles.  The center is free with zoo admission but timed-entry passes are required and available on a first-come, first-served basis at admissions.  For more information, go to penguins.detroitzoo.org.
