The Red Flannel Queen and Court and the Cedar Springs Fire Department were both present at Community Night last week.

There was a lot to see last Thursday, April 16, at the annual Community Night, sponsored by the Community Action Network. Their partnership with the school to also make it a Fine Arts night has added another dimension to exploring what the Cedar Springs area has to offer.

Amanda Gerhardt, of CAN, estimated 1,000 to 1,500 people visited the event. “We felt like it was a great turnout, especially going at the same time as the Hazel Soccer game,” she said, referring to the purple game played in memory of former teacher and coach Scott Hazel.

A martial arts demonstration was performed by students of American Martial Arts.

Zumba raises funds for library


ENT-ZumbaOn Saturday, October 12, nine people came out to help raise money for a new Cedar Springs library. Zumba leader Monica Sanders enthusiastically led the group in an extensive workout that left everyone sweating, and with a big smile on their face. The two people who couldn’t make it gave a donation to show their support. The event raised $110 in just an hour! A big thanks to Amanda Gerhardt, Director of the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation, and her board for hosting this event, now in it’s second year.
