Celebrating community night


Residents, businesses, school groups, and other non-profits came together last Thursday, at Cedar Springs High School, for the 25th annual Community Night.
“It really was a good event,” said organizer Isabelle Brace, of the Community Action Network (CAN). “Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and we had a lot of good comments.”
There were 125 vendors, including the Post, that bought tables to showcase their business or group, or provide a service to residents. There were some free food samples, such as ice cream and cake, and a free sloppy joe dinner.
“It was a nice family evening,” said Lori Ostrom, of Cedar Springs. “We were able to get the information we needed on how our family can volunteer at the Red Cross. We also enjoyed the ice cream and free sloppy joe dinner. Thank you!”
One change in this year’s Community Night was that the ever-popular AeroMed helicopter did not make an appearance. “They said they couldn’t do it this year due to budget cuts,” explained Brace.

Many booths had drawings for a free product. The Post gave away a digital camera with memory card. Congratulations to Cedar Springs High School senior Tyler Felty, who won the camera! You can see some of his photos on page 2 with the drinking and driving story.
