The Suggestion Box- Area Happenings
By N3 Entertainment Team
Summer weekend II, right? I mean, we at N3 World Headquarters and Plant Hydration Center know summer doesn’t ‘officially’ begin for another week and a half or so. We all also know that despite what the little notation on the calendar says Michiganders are perhaps not knee deep but at the very least ankle deep into the season as we speak. There are things to do, places to go and people to see, all the while taking time to embrace the outdoors. It’s busy out there folks.
And the action has certainly not let up.
Camp Newaygo is dedicating the Peggy Stone Center with a ribbon cutting Friday afternoon and an ice cream social Sunday from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. Contact Camp Newaygo at 652-1184 for details on either of these events.
It’s Kids Day in Newaygo! Saturday from 12-3pm area children (and their accompanying adults) have the opportunity...
...to interact with local law enforcement and emergency services folks in a family friendly setting. There will be a slew of games and activities and food and it’s all free.
A huge shout out here to Sui Generis and their uber-generous contribution of a bedroom set as a giveaway at the event. Good people doing good things for a great community. Well done Coopers!
Art in Action is a way cool event put on by NCCA-Artsplace. Fremont’s Market Pavilion is the site for the 10am-1pm event.The day’s activities include special guests Mat Emerick with “Circus Arts” at 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and Dee Jay the Clown at 10:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. A variety of creative art projects for the kids will be available ongoing during this free event.
Newaygo’s baseball team will be taking the field at Morley Stanwood High School in a 10am game against CSAA Gold rival Reed City. Should they triumph they will face the winner of GR West Catholic and Montague at 2pm. with the winners heading for quarterfinal play in Petoskey as one of the elite eight in the D3 tournament. Go Lions!
And as you’re out and about patronize one of our fine local dining establishments. Whether it’s breakfast in Grant, lunch in Fremont, dinner in Newaygo, or maybe grabbing a brew with buddies or sharing a pizza on the pontoon, taking advantage of the offerings provided by our eateries at least once a weekend is good for us, good for them, and good for our community.
Coming Soon…. Thursday is the Senior Expo, the Farmers Market opens in Brooks Park next Friday, and the return of Dogwood favorite Bob Milne is on tap for next Saturday
