The Post travels to Shipshewana


Rose and Jerry Bowman of Cedar Springs went to see the internationally known Irish tenor singer Danny O’Donnell in Shipshewana, Indiana over the Christmas holidays. 

“Danny put on a very thoughtful and long two part production of old time favorite songs and Christmas songs,” wrote Jerry. “After the end of the show Danny was very thoughtful to meet with us for a Post newspaper picture showing his warm personality with a kiss on my wife’s cheek!”

That sounds like a fun! Thank you for taking us with you!

Post travels to Wisconsin, Upper Peninsula


The Post traveled with the Guarisco family in July on the Lake Express fast ferry across Lake Michigan to Wisconsin. They went to the Dells and saw the Tommy Bartlett Boat Show, and then toured the area for a couple of days. They then traveled to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for the rest of the week. They went to Iron Mountain and did the iron mine tour and learned about “Big John,” the world’s largest miner. They took a train ride through the mine, which has been open for tourists since 1958. They stopped and saw a waterfall, and visited Kitch-iti-Kipi, Michigan’s largest natural fresh water spring (the name means big cold water). “It was nice to see all the fish in the water,” they said. “It sure is beautiful up there. We had a great family trip!”

It sounds like you had a great time! Thanks so much for taking us with you!

The Post travels to Hawaii


Earlier this year the Post traveled to Hawaii with Alan and Alyson Kieda, of Solon Township, and their daughter Rachel and her husband Ryan Campbell, and grandson Thomas, of Gand Rapids. The trip was to celebrate Alan and Alyson’s 40th wedding anniversary.

After missing a day because of ice at the airport, they traveled to Maui for a few days, then Oahu for almost a week, and then the Big Island for a week. 

“We stayed at a beautiful Airbnb and played on volcanic beaches,” said Alan. “We learned all about volcanoes, as one cancelled two of our housing possibilities early in the year. We wondered why they didn’t just clear the lava off the road. We went to see it and found lava 30 feet high-plus over the roads and neighborhood for miles! 2000 folks lost their homes,” he said.

The Kiedas and Campbells had a great time and took lots of photos with the Post. Thank you so much for taking us with you!

The Post travels to the Bahamas


The Post recently took a tour of the Bahamas with Josh and Rachel (Reed) Hunt, of Martin. The couple left Miami on a five-day cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line and made stops at Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s own island), Nassau, Freeport (on Grand Bahama Island), and then back to Great Stirrup Cay. That island is the one shown in the background of the photo.

Thank you, Rachel and Josh, for taking us with you!

The Post travels to the Thumb


TJ Norris of Solon Township, traveled with husband Ken to the Thumb Region of Michigan to get one last road trip in before the snows. While the main display at the Sanilac Petroglyphs, just south of Port Austin, was closed for the winter, there was still a good hike in the woods and enough petroglyphs visible to give a good reason to come back.

Thanks to TJ and Ken for taking us with you!

The Post travels north


Charlie and Kathy Prahl took the Cedar springs Post on a Pure Michigan adventure beginning on a color tour up to and through the Tunnel of Trees; met friends in St. Ignace for a quick visit; and up to Willabee’s Hotel in Brimley—the only place for miles with a vacancy but really enjoyed the area. They took in Deer Park, climbed Castle Rock and spent some time in Mackinaw City. Two days were spent at The Island House Hotel on Mackinac Island, highly recommended, embracing all the beauty of that wonderful island! We live in a beautiful state!

Thanks so much, Charlie and Kathy, for taking us with you!

The Post travels to the Grand Canyon


Samantha Avery displays her POST at the Grand Canyon

The Post traveled to the Grand Canyon at the end of August with Samantha Avery, of Cedar Springs. But it wasn’t just a vacation; it was actually done as part of a charity fundraiser for the Project Athena Foundation.

“I hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim from the south rim to the north rim, which is about 25 miles…about 9 miles down, across the bottom ‘box’ of the canyon, and up about 14.5 miles with about 6,000ft of elevation gain,” explained Avery. “The temperature in the canyon was about 150 degrees that day and it was miserable. You have to move quickly because you’re basically being cooked alive while you hike. I made it rim to rim in about 15 hours, with no serious injury, but did lose a toenail and a lot of skin from my feet and some of my gear melted.”

At the request of her parents and grandmother, Sam carried a copy of the latest Cedar Springs Post through the canyon with her and snapped photos at the bottom and the top. 

“Over 5 million people visit the Grand Canyon every year and only 1 percent of those visitors hike down to the river, and only 1 percent of those hikers hike across the Canyon and up the other side. It may not be the first time the Post has been to the Grand Canyon, but I’m willing to bet it’s the first time that it’s gone rim to rim!” she remarked.

Avery explained that the hike was done as a fundraiser for the Project Athena Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps cancer survivors and victims of other medical ailments live out their adventure goals and achieve difficult physical goals after suffering from debilitating circumstances. 

“This cause is near and dear to my heart since both my grandma and sister are engaged in an ongoing battle against breast cancer. I trained for a year to do this difficult task in solidarity with my older sister, who is currently in her own difficult task of fighting stage IV cancer.”

Sam said this is her grandmother Peggy Avery’s second bout with it, and she’s beating it. However, Sam’s sister, Sarah Brygal, recently lost her insurance, and needs help raising money for her treatment. She gave us a link to her sister’s gofundme page if anyone would like to help her out. Sarah was a teacher but is no longer working. She and her husband, who is a firefighter and septic tank inspector, live in Greenville with their four children. https://www.gofundme.com/f/sarah-brygal-cancer-relief

Thank you so much, Sam, for including us in this project, and for taking us with you!

The Post travels to Alaska


The Post traveled to Ketchikan, Alaska, with Arvid Kiander of Cedar Springs when he traveled there in August to visit his sister. Together with his son and daughter-in-law, Kevin & Shila Kiander, they traveled on an Alaska Marine Highway Ferry from Bellingham, Washington to Ketchikan, through the inner passage.
