"What you can do or think you can do, begin it. For boldness has magic, power, and genius in it." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

All year, we are celebrating individuals and organizations that are being bold in Bay and Arenac counties. To be bold is to be brave and daring, to take a risk. We want to uplift those who see possibility and believe that change can happen.
