Wow. August is screaming by at warp speed. Next week the high school sports season kicks into high gear as football, cross country, tennis, soccer, volleyball, swimming, and golf begin their seasons in earnest.
But take heart good citizens, it is still summertime. Head for a lake or river and bond with the water via tube, canoe, kayak, speedboat, jet ski, pontoon stand-up board, fishing boat or just a plain old fashioned swim.
Then take in some much needed sustenance at one of our fine local eateries (check the Nibbler page). The staff at N3 World Headquarters & Flower Sanctuary are known to dine out on at least 2 occasions each weekend due to always having at least one of those uber-active days that generally end with a mutual desire to stay out of the kitchen and/or the popular weekend breakfast ritual that has gone on for decades.
Here’s a tantalizing trio enticing activities happening in our parts this weekend.
As part of the free ORV weekend at Diamond Lake Park the West Michigan Ridge Runners ORV Club is organizing a ride at 9:30 a.m. Saturday leaving from park and heading north and east to the Hawkins area on Cottonwood and 17 Mile Road in Barton Township and then back again.The campground is located at 3351 N. Mundy Ave., White Cloud, and was formerly called Camp Swampy when it was owned by Steelcase who used it as a retreat center.
Those who wanted to take a little cruise over the Cloud during the Fly-In on Father’s Day but failed to get cooperation from the weather, will get a second shot at it Saturday from 10am-2pm at the White Cloud Airport. If you’ve never flown in a smaller plane around your area and are not stricken with acrophobia this is an outstanding experience. My venture on one of these flights a few years back remains in a personal Top Ten All Time Activity List
The Zoo is coming to the Dogwood!
No, not the whole zoo, that would need much more room.
Instructors from the wondrous kingdom of animals located in our metro neighbor to the south and known as the John Ball Zoo will be on hand at the Black Box Saturday starting at 3pm (see ad on homepage)to provide some intriguing programming aimed at the 5-10 year old crowd. It’s limited to 40 participants so call 231.924.8885 for more info or go to www.dogwoodcenter.com
And speaking of the Dogwood…… Second City (yes that Second City) is coming in September.
