First Lady Jill Biden Makes Stops in West Michigan

MIDDLEVILLE, Mich. - First Lady Dr. Jill Biden made a visit to YMCA Camp Manitou-Lin on Wednesday morning as the first stop on her mini-tour of Michigan.

Michigan is a battleground state in this year's presidential election, but Dr. Biden came to participate in an event that highlighted the U.S. Department of Agriculture's summer nutrition programs for kids. Held at the same location, Dr. Biden also spent time with campers at Camp Corral, an overnight camp for military-connected children.

Dr. Biden was joined with Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) for both events. Bob Peters, chairman of Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians (Gun Lake Tribe), attended the first event and gave First Lady Biden a black ash basket.
