We received a nice note from Donna Clark this week. She and her husband Dan won* a set of four tickets to see the Lipizzaner Stallion last Sunday at Van Andel Arena.
“Our family absolutely loved seeing the Lipizzaner Stallions ‘dance’ to classical music. Dan, Tamar and our eldest daughter, Daneille, and I used the four free tickets we won through your subscription drive. I wouldn’t miss the opportunity to subscribe to the POST – tickets or no tickets! We are so grateful for the gift of seeing the Lipizzaners for the first time. It has been a 25-year dream of Daneille’s to see these horses. She first read a book about them when she was 7 years old and later, in her early
teens, saw a video about them in Austria during the War. General Patton actually saved many of them from being killed during the devastation of World War II. I am not sure what was more exciting for me—seeing the stallions or seeing Daneille delight in the show. Thank you!”
We are so glad the Clark family enjoyed their prize!

Deb Schuiteman, store manager at Meijer, hands Librarian Donna Clark a portion of the grant money that Meijer requested on behalf of area nonprofits through the Pepsi Refresh Program.
If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
The Cedar Springs Public Library was notified recently that they had $407 waiting for them at our local Meijer store from the Pepsi Refresh program. Knowing that the library needed to replace at least four of their six computers, Librarian Donna Clark thought, ”That’s great! That’s half of one computer!”
Clark said she was then invited to apply for more money to see if she could get the “other half” of the computer. “I wrote the request and was notified by
Deb (Schuiteman, store manager,) that Meijer had granted us another $500 to be used in store for anything they offered in the way of computer software, supplies, etc.,” remarked Clark.
She said Schuiteman is retiring after 37 years of service at Meijer, and the money for the library will be among the last of her “Meijer good deeds.”
Clark noted that they would be replacing all six computers and they are being provided in memory of Lois Arthur (2+), one by Meijer, and three by Mike and Alice Holton. Four are public computers and two are for staff.
