53rd Annual Danish Festival – August 17, 18, 19, 20, 2017

2017 Theme Story


2017 Theme Poster Contest Winner – Artist: Beverly Adams | Crystal, MI

THE FIR TREE (“Grantræet”)

by Hans Christian Andersen

First published in December of 1844, this story is a cautionary tale about a Fir Tree who learned too late that what we have is often far better than what we desire.  He could not be happy in the moment because he was too anxious to grow up.  He expected greater glory just around the corner and he eventually felt regret.

In the woods stood a little Fir Tree.  The Fir Tree wanted so badly to be grown up, to be able to spread out his branches with the tops looking into the wide world.  He longed to have the birds build nests among his branches and the breezes blow through his bows making him bend with as much stateliness as the others.  The little tree found no pleasure in the beauty around him, no matter the season.  He only wanted to continue to grow taller and grander.  He was envious of the magnificent trees that fell to the earth with great noise and cracking, whose branches were cut, and trunks laid in carts and dragged out of the wood.

The birds told the Fir these grown trees became masts of grand ships or Christmas trees beautifully decorated, so he dreamed of becoming a mast to fly across the sea or a Christmas tree ornamented with the most splendid things!

“Rejoice in your growth and in the fresh life that moves within you!” said the Sunbeams.  The wind and the dew kissed the Tree, but the Fir appreciated none of it.  He continued to dream of masts and Christmas adornments, and longed for something better, something grander.   “Rejoice in our presence!” said the Air and the Sunlight. “Rejoice in your own fresh youth!”  But the Fir did not rejoice at all.  He grew into a fine tree and he became the first to be cut down the following Christmas.  He fell to the earth; he felt a pang; he could not think of happiness, for he was feeling sad at being separated from his home.

He became an adorned Christmas tree with children celebrating around him.  After Christmas, the Fir thought the splendor would begin again but he was dragged out of the room into a dark corner of the attic where no one visited.  The Fir Tree was terribly lonely and he missed the animals of the wood and the children of Christmas Eve.  He told the mice in the attic about the most beautiful spot on the earth….the wood of his youth, where the sun shone and the birds sang.  And he told them of Christmas Eve, when he was decorated with ornaments and candles.  The more he remembered, the more he felt as if those times had really been the happiest of times. But he promised himself he would enjoy and appreciate his life once he was out of the attic.

When the people finally took him from the attic and pulled him outside, he felt the fresh air and sunshine.  He thought his merry life would now begin.  He did not feel old.  He felt in his prime. He spread out his branches, but they were all withered and yellow.  The Fir Tree saw all the beauty of the garden around him and he thought of his youth in the wood, of the merry Christmas Eve, and of the little Mice who had listened with so much pleasure to his stories.  He realized then it all was over and he should have rejoiced in the moments of his life as the Sunbeams had wisely advised.

Forum on UFOs in Michigan

 

On Thursday, August 17, Dr. Ron Pleune will hold an open forum and information meeting at the Cedar Springs Library from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and a question and answer period from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., on the topic of UFO’s in Michigan as well as the greater Rockford, Cedar Springs, Sand Lake areas.

Dr. Pleune is a graduate of Aquinas College and Bethany Theological Seminary with majors in Business Management, Youth and Family Counseling as well as a Doctorate in Apologetics. He has taught at several colleges as an adjunct professor and recently taught an 11-week class in the Rockford Community Education Program on the Billy Meier UFO contacts that began in 1942. The course will be offered again this coming fall. Dr. Pleune is also a certified for MUFON (Mutual UFO Network).

Dr. Pleune became interested in UFO activity in childhood and was intrigued with the sightings in the 1960’s but never saw one until the spring of 1974 when he and his family moved to Rockford in 1973. One clear Saturday morning a UFO hovered a couple hundred feet above the back yard and a call was placed to the Grand Rapids airport. The airport confirmed that many calls were coming in about UFO being sighted in the Rockford area.

UFO sightings continued to be an interest and led him to his UFO teaching efforts in 2016, which includes a 2-hour session on how to contact UFOs. Personal contact efforts in 2016 resulted in 38 UFO flashing a light back when summoned by light signal, 4 UFO flyovers where UFO flew approximately 200 feet overhead, and one close encounter where a UFO hovered 50 ft. off the ground just 400 feet away when he and his wife arrived at their common UFO signaling field. In 2017, personal contacts are above the 2016 count…and you’ve got to hear of the UFO he summoned on Feb. 19 as well as how the UFO have flashed back on occasion when he has spoken into the night sky.

The community will be invited to share personal UFO experiences, express their interest in the formation of a UFO monthly fellowship, how to sign up for the 11 week course of the Billy Meier UFO story, and how to sign up for a class on how to signal UFO, which results in personal field training and a Certificate of Completion.

The Cedar Springs Library does not endorse nor bear any legal liability regarding the subject of this meeting offered by Dr. Ron Pleune for personal enrichment to those that are interested.

Travel to Stratford with MCC on Oct. 6 to see Romeo and Juliet

 

Montcalm Community College offers a one-day cultural trip to Stratford, Ontario, Canada, on Oct. 6, to see Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.”

Buses depart from MCC’s Sidney campus at 6 a.m., and there is a second pick up at the Ionia Meijer parking lot at 6:30 a.m.
Student registration is $31.59 and the cost for non-students is $67.29. Registration includes the cost of the bus trip and the theater ticket. Participants are responsible for buying their own meals.

“Even though ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is one of the most well-known of Shakespeare’s plays, we can count on seeing it through new eyes at Stratford,” MCC Drama and Art Instructor Carolyn Johnson said. “The level of professionalism and creativity is always exceptional and entertaining.

“Watching live theater is an amazing type of synergy; it’s a communal experience where everyone plays a part in creating the event,” she added. “The immediacy of being in the moment with the actors, where anything can happen in the play, and the audience is swept away by the story unfolding in front of them, is a rare magic.”

Anyone planning to participate in this trip must be age 12 or older, and have an enhanced driver’s license, United States Passport or Passport Card that is valid through October 2017. Participants between 12 and 17 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Children younger than age 12 are not permitted to attend.

To register, visit http://www.montcalm.edu/stratfordwww.montcalm.edu/stratford by Oct. 4. There is a limited number of tickets, and registration is first-come, first-served.

For more information about the trip, visit http://www.montcalm.edu/stratfordwww.montcalm.edu/stratford or contact MCC Cultural Events Coordinator Karen Maxfield at karen.maxfield@montcalm.edu or 989-328-2111, Ext. 334.

Future son-in-law

 

Once there was a millionaire who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The millionaire also had a beautiful daughter who was single.

One day he decided to throw a huge party, and during the party he announced, “My dear guests, I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars or my daughter to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge unharmed!”

As soon as he finished his last word, there was the sound of a large SPLASH! There was one guy in the pool swimming as fast as he could go. The crowd cheered him on as he kept stroking. Finally, he made it to the other side unharmed.

The millionaire was impressed. He said, “My boy, that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn’t think it could be done! Well I must keep my end of the bargain…which do you want, my daughter or the one million dollars?”

“Listen,” said the man, “I don’t want your money!

And I don’t want your daughter! I want the name of the person who pushed me in!”

The 8th Annual Sparta Celtic Festival 

August 11-12 at Rogers Park in Sparta

Are you looking for some fun, family entertainment? Interested in good food and good brews? Love Irish and Scottish music, dance and history? Or maybe you’ve just always wanted to run a 5K in a kilt? The 8th annual Sparta Celtic Festival has a little something for everyone!

The 2017 festival kicks off Friday, August 11, at Rogers Park, 75 N. Union in Sparta, and runs from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and reopens Saturday, August 12, from 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The festival continues to exceed growth expectations, and this year they added the nationally known touring act “The Moxie Strings,” to their full entertainment lineup, and added a new “Snap Fitness, 5K KILTED Fun Run & Walk” this year.

Friday night’s Festival Preview opens at 5 p.m. with access to the new “Splash Pad” at Rogers Park and the festival grounds, which includes a beverage tent, food vendors, Celtic shops and even a 1500’s Mercenaries Historic Encampment.

Entertainment on The Kent Equipment Main Stage begins with the area’s favorite Irish Group, “The Conklin Ceili Band,” at 6PM, followed by local Irish Dancers from Scoil Rince Ní Bhraonáin, and finishing up with an energetic performance at 7:45 from The Moxie Strings. The group has recently appeared at the Meijer Gardens Amphitheater and been seen at Festivals all over America.

On Saturday, the fun begins early with the “Inaugural, Snap Fitness, 5K KILTED Fun Run & Walk.” Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the Main Stage with kilted participants getting $5 off their entry fee! Also returning to the Festival this year is a Rugby Tournament at Balyeat Field and the very popular Highland Games on the Festival grounds.

A full day of Celtic entertainment on four separate stages begins at 11:00 a.m. with Irish Dancers (one of 6 different dance groups on Saturday,) and ends with two incredible Rock style acts later in the evening. Local favorites “Hazard” will be performing on the ChoiceOne Bank Street Stage beginning around 8 p.m., and Detroit’s “Stone Clover,” the Midwest’s hottest Irish rock show, closes out the night on the main stage beginning at 8:30 p.m. In between, there will be 12 other musical acts, a Giant Leprechaun emcee, two “Kilted Magician Shows,” a bagpipe band, a tribute to a Fallen Soldier, a wandering Scottish Clown, and “Celtic Kilroy,” the living statue! All of this, for free!

The Sparta Celtic Festival remains one of the largest “free entry” Cultural festivals in Michigan thanks to the generous support of many great sponsors and with the help of a small army of volunteers. Besides the music and dance acts on stage, there will be a new Cultural Tent on the grounds, Irish Language Lessons, Irish Set and Ceili Dance Instructions, traditional Irish Music Sessions, Clan tents, a “Mercenaries of the 1500’s” encampment, and children’s activities with a Celtic twist.

Celtic gifts, food and drink are all available on both Friday and Saturday, as well as a craft fair on Saturday only. New to our “Cellar Brewing Co. Beverage Tent,” and especially with the kids in mind, are “Craft Soft Drinks” from Detroit City Soda” on tap. Also back at the festival are “The Whiskey Guys,” with samplings of both Irish whiskey and Scotch whisky.

So, the Sparta Celtic Festival continues to grow, continues to be free to enter, and remains very family Friendly.

What’s not to love about that? Even if you are not Irish, Scottish, Welsh, or any of the other four Celtic Nations, there is something you should enjoy about a free day of great cultural entertainment at a beautiful park in downtown Sparta, Michigan! See the complete entertainment schedule below.

KDL’s SuperPartyWonderDay

 

Kent District Library goes beyond books to celebrate bands, beer, bikes and BBQ

Partygoers can expect the unexpected as Kent District Library rolls out a new annual event that invites the public to experience the best of the diverse community programs it has to offer.

SuperPartyWonderDay is a free community celebration that brings together bands, beer, bikes and BBQ—all things that patrons of the award-winning

KDL system can explore through its programs and services. On Saturday, Aug. 12 from noon to 8 p.m. at the Meadows of Millennium Park, located at 1415 Maynard Ave. SW in Walker, the event goes “Beyond Books” to celebrate the breadth of offerings that KDL provides—and the area communities that makes it a success.

“We are beyond excited to host our first ever SuperPartyWonderDay,” said KDL Executive Director Lance Werner. “We have a whole smorgasbord full of excellent activities that will celebrate how KDL takes our patrons beyond books. Whether you’re a fan of bands, beer, bikes or BBQ, this is sure to be a day of unexpected fun.

“It also gives us a great chance to showcase the many unique programs and services we provide that you wouldn’t expect from a library. Patrons are surprised when they learn they can check out a bike. Or an iPad or wireless hotspot. Or download free video games and ebooks.

Or take grilling lessons, learn to brew beer or get help creating a movie or podcast. At KDL, our goal is to connect people with new ideas and new ways of exploring their community and the world around us.”

Highlights include:

  • KDaLe program partners Railtown Brewing Co., Cedar Springs Brewing Co., Kayla Rae Cellars, Gravel Bottom Craft Brewery and Cascade Cellars Winery will be on tap to provide beer, cider and wine to eventgoers.
  • Performances by KDL local indie bands Jesse Ray and the Carolina Catfish, CønradShøck + The Nøise and Brother Adams will provide musical entertainment throughout the day.
  • The SuperPartyWonderRide will offer participants an opportunity to hop on their bikes and cruise through the park led by a squadron of KDL Cruisers. Bicycle parking and support provided by Bike KDL and Greater Grand Rapids Bicycle Coalition.
  • The Rib CookOff will give grilling aficionados the opportunity to put their skills to the test. The event is sponsored by the Grilling Company. Participants will be judged on taste, visual appearance and tenderness. The public will be allowed to get in the action and sample tastes of the participants’ entries.
  • Food trucks, including Patty Matters, A Moveable Feast and Moochies Dream Cream, will be on hand to serve up goodies like ice cream, popcorn, slushies, patties of all sorts and locally sourced fresh, seasonal food.
  • Partygoers will have a chance to play KDL’s most popular kid-friendly games, such as giant checkers, beanbag toss, a top-secret STEAM activity and more.

While seating is available throughout the venue, ample lawn space is available to partygoers who wish to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Both “human” and “furry” kids are welcome.

For more information on the event, visit www.kdl.org/superparty. Connect with KDL on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with #KDLSuperParty.

Paid for standing around

 

The owner of a manufacturing firm decided to make a surprise tour of the factory. While walking through the warehouse, he noticed a young man lazily leaning against a packing crate.

“Just how much are you being paid?” the owner demanded.

“A hundred dollars a week,” the young man replied.
The owner pulled out his wallet, peeled off five $20 bills and shouted at the young man, “Here is a week’s pay—now get out and don’t come back!”

Without a word, the young man stuffed the money into his pocket and left.

The warehouse manager, standing nearby, stared in amazement.

“Tell me,” the boss asked him, “How long has that guy worked for us?”

“He didn’t work here,” replied the warehouse manager. “He was just the Fed-Ex guy delivering a package.”

Check out these classic cars

 

This painting of an Old Packard was created by Tim Hindenach and is currently hanging in the Cedar Springs Community Library. Photo courtesy of Claudia Mabie.

Do you love classic and vintage cars? Then you don’t want to miss out on two great opportunities to indulge that passion!

The Cedar Springs Historical Society is holding their annual car show this weekend, Saturday, July 29, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the parking lot between Morley Park and Skinner Field. Special guests this year include the Michigan State Police and their special black and gold cruiser, designed to celebrate their 100th anniversary of service. The car resembles the department’s iconic 1937 Ford Model 74 patrol car.

The Kent County Sheriff Department will also be on hand with their mobile command bus. The bus will be open for display and the operator will be available to answer your questions.

The car show helps the museum provide free family programs throughout the year. For details, click here, to download ad.

The second opportunity is to visit the Cedar Springs Community Library, and see the painting of an old Packard (shown in the photo above). It’s one of two new installations hanging at the library as part of the program “Artists, Authors, and You!” The painting is by Tim Hindenach.

The library is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. to noon.
