What’s Coming Up and Good Stuff To Know
By N3 Informational Team
It’s kind of early-mid May I know, but this time of year things tend to speed up a bit when making arrangements to make good on the promises you made to yourself during the ‘off-season’.
We at N3 World Headquarters and Flower Fortress have been down that road. You miss one of these annual gigs or find it’s too late to sign-up for a sports league or team and you make a vow to get it together early next year. Then winter comes and you double that promise and...
...add a whole bunch of other stuff you are going to be sure you do and suddenly you’re overbooked or so caught up in the revelry of our warmer weather months that once again the things you wanted to do slip away for another year.
Well here’s a handful of happenings and series of sign-ups occurring in the not-too-distant-to-start-planning future for you to consider.
When you’re not practicing your revelling, of course.
Summer Gets Some Traction
Ah yes,Memorial Day. That kickoff to the summer season in our lands always brings a good time to downtown Newaygo. Remember,we’re less than three weeks away from that gateway to good times weekend and, as always, while the Arts and Crafts Show might be centered in Brooks Park there will be a flurry of fun filled activity throughout The Town. More details coming later.
Mill Pond Magic
The Russell Gilbert Free Fishing Day in White Cloud is approaching rapidly (June 3rd) and they can always use a few more tag-a-fish sponsors so pony up people! This is an outstanding community event that brings families from all over to the Cloud to watch aspiring anglers try for trout. If you’ve got a youngster who likes to fish and another who has never before dipped a worm into water, they are both likely to have a really good time here. At N3 we have seen our share of RHGFFD’s and while none have been alike they each shared an ability to create a kind of Mill Pond magic.
Party At The Park
The following Saturday the action return to Brooks Park for the Newaygo County Kids Day, the annual get together between area children and the folks who are vital in our efforts to keep them safe. A well organized and definitely kid focused event that tends to produce ample smiles among young and old.
The Sporting Life
