Scavenging, Soccer, Syrup and Seasonal Jobs
By N3 Informational Team
Monday night (March 27) is the aforementioned White Cloud Rotary Jazz Festival at 7pm at the Grant Fine Arts Center which will still be echoing with the applause from this past weekend’s run of “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”.
This is one of those annual events that brings a number of repeat attendees, Folks who may have gone once out of curiosity or maybe because a niece or nephew was playing sax in one of the bands now return each year because the music is outstanding (and very recognizable) and the performers showcase the talent developed in our high school band programs. The staff of N3...
...World Headquarters, who incidentally possess a wealth of Big Band vinyl, were off on a road trip last year and missed this bright and breezy experience but we plan on settling into one of the seats Monday because this year all 5 of our county schools will be duly represented by a little bebop. Besides, as mentioned, Jim Jones will be dusting off his witty DJ repartee to emcee the show.
White Cloud’s New Life Assembly of God is putting together a Scavenger Hunt slated for April 8th from 3-5pm. This is a community wide pursuit that will begin with registration at Granny’s Kitchen, located in the Cloud’s downtown area, and gives those who successfully complete the tasks a chance to win one of four bikes that will be given away.
A little test of your scavenging skills, a chance for a new bike and best of all…..
It’s free folks.
Hey, word has it that the Newaygo County Road Commission is hiring for summer employment, just perfect for that college student who’s going to be home for awhile and will be wanting to have a little cash to take back to school in the fall for, well, you know, pizza and stuff. They’re also looking for folks who might possess a CDL to hire on for seasonal help. The Road Commission has all the details and you can stop by their office on 935 E. One Mile Rd in White Cloud or call them at 232.689.6682 or even email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Speaking of seasonal jobs……..
Want to work outside for about 4-5 weeks harvesting, sorting and counting small trees? The Newaygo Conservation District Nursery is accepting applications but get them in soon because they are on the cusp of beginning and you can apply at their facility located at 1725 72nd St. in Newaygo, between 9am-3pm.
Saturday, April 1st our friends at The Shack are hosting Sugar Shack where you can not only come out and watch the process of turning sap to syrup but also follow it up with a pancake and sausage breakfast (all you can eat) served up from 9am-2pm with (of course) homemade syrup. The Shack’s in Jugville and if you have to ask Jugville is (once the home of the legendary Newaygo Newt and current location of Newaygo Newt Park) you’re probably not from around these parts so ask someone.
Bowlapalooza is coming later this month (April 21,28,29) to Fremont Lanes so if you’re into bowling, into helping kids, into having a good time with some good folks, or all of the above get some friends together and contact the TrueMentors program at TrueNorth to see how you can put together a team for a really really good cause. From what I understand from past bowling experiences you needn’t bring a ball or shoes or even know how to keep score. All it takes is a desire to knock down a few pins and, in my case, ensure the ball travels in the right direction.
The Fremont Rec Center is holding sign-ups for their Spring Soccer program for kids from 4 years old (by May 31 2017) to 10 years old. They can also use some volunteer coaches so either visit the desk or call them at 231.924.3750. Registration deadline is Thursday April 6.
