Info on tap in Croton
One often hears about the dearth of people attending the meetings held by local governmental entities.
Croton Township meetings often bring in special guests to deliver presentations and on Monday Jan. 13, starting at 7pm they will hear from a trio of speakers.
Newaygo County Clerk Jason Vanderstelt-“Update from the Clerk’s office”
Mitch Rood, NPD school liaison officer at Newaygo schools- "A day in the life of an embedded police officer".
State Representative Scott VanSingel-”"What we can expect from our State Legislators in 2020".
Kudos to Croton Township folks for making these presentations available to those who attend the meetings and double kudos to the citizens who show up at these monthly gatherings.
Besides the informative talks there will also be the township business to attend to, of course.
Glass (not iced over) Trees
The NCCA Artsplace is a great venue for channelling that inner artist that has long been simmering. Lindsey Isenhart is one of those rare artists who can translate her creativity into instructional mode while maintaining patience and good humor. This combination makes her workshops fun and this Thursday she will be holding court over Fused Glass Birch Trees.
Here’s the skinny:
Using the season of your choice, create a beautiful fused glass birch tree panel using layers of COE 96 glass, glass paints, stringers, frit, and baubles. Each part of the fused glass panel will be demonstrated layer by layer. Proper use of glass cutters, breaking pliers, nippers and other glassworkers tools will be taught also. All materials pro- vided. Pick up the following week.
Thursday 6:00-8:00 p.m. January 16
Class Fee: $50($45 Members) Ages 16-Adult.
