T-party with Taylor Swift

Brooke Morris, 12, of Cedar Springs, Madison Morris, 9, of Cedar Springs, Alexa Morris, 11 years, Algonquin, IL, and Amanda Morris, 13 years, also of Algonquin IL spending time with musician Taylor Swift last week.

Two Cedar Springs girls and their two cousins got a special treat last week when they got to spend some one on one time with one of their favorite singers, Taylor Swift.

Almost 11,000 attended the concert in Grand Rapids on July 28, including Brooke Morris, 12, of Cedar Springs, Madison Morris, 9, of Cedar Springs, Alexa Morris, 11 years, Algonquin, IL, and Amanda Morris, 13 years, also of Algonquin IL.

According to Brooke and Madison’s mom, Stephanie Morris, Taylor Swift’s mom handpicked girls out of the crowd to attend the musician’s private “T-party” after the performance. The girls wore special shirts, and held lit signs and guitars to help them get noticed.

“It was an amazing experience for them and something they will never forget!” said Stephanie.

Concert in the park tonight

Music is back in Morley Park, in Cedar Springs, and there will be another concert tonight, Thursday, July 21 at 7 p.m. with the group “Brena.” It may be warm outside, but come try and relax to the sweet sounds of this awarding winning band, that even has their own CD.

In addition to the entertainment, there will be concessions and door prizes, along with cotton candy and frozen snacks. These frozen snacks and the cold beverages will help you counteract the heat. The event is free to the public and will include a free raffle of door prizes during the bands intermission. The door prizes are donated by local businesses.

This is the fifth year that the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation department and local businesses have sponsored concerts in the park.  The events began in 2006 with one concert and grew in 2007 to holding three concerts.  The Cedar Springs businesses work with the department to offer these events at no charge to the community. “These concerts have grown in size and have become a mainstay summer event for the Cedar Springs area,” said CSAPR Director Amanda Gerhardt. “We enjoy watching the community come and relax for an evening. The hard economic times make it difficult for some families to do activities, so we are thrilled to provide them this opportunity to have some fun.”

An additional concert will be held on August 18 in Morley Park and will feature 50’s and 60’s music by “ The Sea Cruisers.”

Another event that the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation department is sponsoring is the 3rd Annual  mud volleyball tournament on Saturday, August 13. Registration is open currently and continues through August 5. Forms are available online and at CS Public Schools District Office.
