Stuff happening this week
By N3 Entertainment Team
We at N3 want you to be in the know so you don’t miss some of the goings on in our area. In that spirit we’re tossing out a few things we’ve heard about to let you in on or remind you of.
Oh and the Bear? He has nothing to do with anything. He’s just become kind of a mascot here at N3WH
There are a couple of events in Newaygo on Monday and both begin at 6pm.
“I Am Newaygo” gives residents and others with ties to the city the opportunity to weigh in on the future of this gem of a town along the Muskegon River from
The Newaygo Economic Development Office (NEDO) will be gathering input on walkability and have posed questions for consideration on the I Am Newaygo facebook page. Do you have ideas about walking and biking around town? Perhaps a thought about increasing accessibility for pedestrians and those who travel on non motorized two wheelers?
The meeting will be at the old museum building on the pathway by Riverfront park. More info can be gathered from the article on our home page.
Got something to add to the discussion?
Show up and share.
From 6-8pm Monday the Newaygo Fire Department will be hosting their Fire Prevention Open House and will be dispensing advice on developing an escape plan for your residence. Got kids? This is a chance for them to see a firetruck up close, partake in an obstacle course and see a little water spraying.
Free food too.
The fire folks in our community are a dedicated crew who would much rather prevent fires than put them out. And we’re coming into the season that is going to require heating of some kind so it’s a good time to have a plan. Their firehouse is located at 177 Cooperative Center Dr. which is the street off M-37 where Great Lakes Energy resides. Check out the article on, of course, our home page.
We at N3 are acquainted with the fine work being done by the Wellspring program at Reeman CRC located in, of all places, Reeman. They provide adult day care services, a necessary respite for caregivers.
Caregivers bring their loved ones to Wellspring for the day so they can get some rest, run errands, take a walk, or do whatever they need to do so they can be renewed and refreshed. While at Wellspring, guests enjoy lots of laughter and friendship as they play games, drink coffee, work on crafts, do exercises, sing songs, listen to stories and go for walks. At a time in life that can often feel lonely, our guests enjoy being part of a community of friends.
Your chance to support these efforts comes Thursday when there will be a Soup/Chili Cookoff and Auction.
Dinner is from 5:30-6:30pm with a silent auction then at 6:30pm the fun gets started with a Live Auction.
Come out and enjoy some seasonal eats while helping the folks who help others.
Like country music? Well you’re going to love the Sweet Tea Trio coming to the Black Box of the Dogwood Friday night. Beyond their substantial talent these three Alabama born entertainers have an incredible stage presence . Last month they opened for Kid Rock at the first concert performed at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, the new home of the Wings and Pistons for you sports aficionados out there. Check out their website and listen to their cover of “Chains” the song Fleetwood Mac made famous. Call the Box Office at 924.8885. Tickets are just 15 bucks for an up close look at an up and coming country sound.
Oh and you can check it out (drum roll) on our home page.
