Some local and not so local doings.
Been itching for a chance to speak to one of our Local Lansing Lawmakers?
On Friday State Senator Jon Bumstead will be available to any and all who wish to engage in a little dialogue, ask a few questions or just stop by and say hello.
From 10-11am he’ll be at the Newaygo County Administration Building (red roof) in White Cloud. From there he will make a stop at the Newaygo City offices where he’ll greet guests in the Council meeting room from 1-2pm (48 State Rd).
Later in the day if you’ve had your fill of political talk and want to sit back and enjoy some high school sports there are several softball/baseball matchups starting at 4.
After last year's cancelled season it’s good to see the players taking the field once again.
Fremont’s teams head to Newaygo, Grant visits Tri County, White Cloud hosts Morley and Kent City makes the trip to Hesperia.
Track & Field more your style?
The Cloud will compete in the Lakeview Invitational Friday and Fremont takes its team to Lowell on Saturday to face a bevy of opponents in the Kathy Talus Invitational.
Only one soccer match on the schedule but you’ll have to take a trip down Alpine to see the Newaygo squad take on Kenowa Hills. The Lions are looking to be a lot of fun to watch this season as they have rolled to a 4-0 record.
More of a motor sports type?
Good news. Berlin Raceway is happening Saturday. Last week they had their annual Icebreaker and this week promises more of everything one might expect on a trip to Berlin.
Early start times are in effect. Grandstands open and practice starts at 2pm, with Green Flag Racing at 4pm.
All night enjoy $1 Hot Dogs and $2 Domestic Drafts.
Super Late Models, Limited Late Models, 4 Cylinders & Mini Wedges Post-Race Party begins at the checkers, featuring performance by Dennie Middleton, of the Bimini Brothers.
Nothing like a little mini road trip is there? And if you’ve missed the warm weather festivals small towns are noted for here’s an opportunity to catch one of the region's earliest offerings.
The Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival runs Friday through Sunday. Their Artisan’s Row has a boatload of vendors signed up, there's a parade, and of courts, pancakes. About an hour and 15 away unless you’re traveling in the official ride of N3WH because it goes real slow and makes frequent stops at places of interest along the way
Here’s the skinny:
There you go. It looks to be a rather nice stretch of weather ahead so drink it in Bi-peninsularians. After all, the fun is just beginning, right?
Oh and if you know of an activity happening and want to spread the word, send us an email and if we open mail that day or it doesn’t fly into spam or we don’t somehow get distracted (it happens) we’ll try to include it.
