Cedar Springs City Hall, Fellow Merchants, Concerned Citizens:
Can we ever come together? Does anyone really care?
As we understand it a very generous person put up $50k of matching funds for a new future library.
We at the Amish Furniture and Gifts Warehouse, wanted to have some little part in seeing this come to fruition.
So, we spent $640.00 for ads in the local papers, giving 15% of all furniture sales for one week to this effort.
Results – none!
A planning representative that the City uses, from Royal Oak, said NO to our signage promoting this cause.
And really when you think about it, why should he care? His children and grandchildren probably have a nice new library in their city.
So, we are sorry, Donna Clark, for not giving the $640.00 to the library fund.
The $100.00 token [I donated] doesn’t quite cut it, so who knows, maybe the planning firm that takes those green backs out of Cedar Springs every year will kick in!
Then, maybe someday Cedar Springs will once again become a nice place to live, work, and play.
