If you haven’t hit The January Series playing this month at the Dogwood this looks to be a dynamite week featuring a quartet of intriguing offerings.
Remember the woman who had her life sentence commuted by the Prez after serving 21 years for a non violent drug crime? She’s on tap Monday. How about the consummate storyteller Mitch Albom who fittingly is scheduled for Tuesday (‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ reference). On Wednesday Ann Compton will reflect on over 4 decades (and 7 Presidents) of covering the White House, Jeremy Everett will enlighten listeners about the dynamics of hunger and poverty on Thursday and for those who are tired of hearing the doom and gloom of how we are spiraling toward destruction, division and devastation Johan Norberg will present a bit of a counter as he speaks to some of the amazing strides being taken and just how far we’ve come.
12:30-1:30pm and again, if you’re interested in securing a bargain lunch (5 bucks, who can beat it?) give a call a day ahead of time and you can munch while you learn.
Happy with how things are going down in Lansing?
Not happy with how things are going down in Lansing?
Well, either way State Senator Jon Bumstead is holding office hours in our fair county on Friday giving constituents the chance to stop in for a chat and ask questions about issues in our bipeninsular state rather than relying on rumors, innuendos, and your Uncle Mike.’s facebook posts for your info.
From 9-10am he’ll be at Hesperia’s Village Hall. From there he travels to the Newaygo County Building in White Cloud to be available from 11am-noon and finally a stop at City Hall in Grant with a 1-2pm time frame.
This Thursday the Social Night at Newaygo Brewing Co. features Vinyl. Yes those discs that once were relegated to thrift store bins have made a comeback. We have always valued the sound of those enticing discs and the library at N3 World Headquarters contains staggering numbers with some that go back to the pre stereo days (The first Bob Dylan album comes to mind). Not only can you hear the selections offered by hosts Mark Petz and Jordan Kinsey but if you bring in a selection or two of your own there’s discounts on beer...never a bad thing. Downtown Newaygo 7-9pm.
And for those interested in what decisions are being made for our local schools there are two School Board meetings.
Newaygo- Monday 6pm
White Cloud- Monday 7:30pm
There you go folks. Some highlights for the coming week.
If you know of an activity or event worthy of mention send us an email at info@nearnorthnow.
And we'll be back with more later this week.
In the meantime….
