Curves waives joining fee for new members who donate


Curves International announces its 15th Annual Food Drive, “Feed the Need,” and challenges Curves’ club members in the U.S. and Canada to meet a goal of 100,000 donations during the two-week period of March 11—March 23. Each club, including Curves of Cedar Springs, is asking its members to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash to support their local community food bank. In addition, Curves of Cedar Springs will waive the joining fee for new members who bring in a bag of non-perishable food or donate $30 to their local food bank during the two week period.

When combined donations from all Curves clubs reaches the goal of 100,000 donations, Curves International will donate 10 percent of March 2013 profits to “Blessings in a Backpack,” a non-profit organization that ensures that impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year.

“This year’s theme, ‘Feed the Need,’ really represents both what we want to accomplish with this year’s food drive and what we do as a business,” said a Curves of Cedar Springs staff member. “We want to help feed local families and school children who would otherwise go hungry on the weekends and we also want to ‘feed the need’ of local women seeking a health and fitness program that fits their busy lifestyle.”

Fundraisers earn money for new library


The used gown sale fundraiser earned money toward the library match challenge Saturday.

Two fundraisers held last weekend earned money toward the $50,000 challenge match toward the Cedar Springs Library building fund.

The gently used gown sale held at the high school Saturday earned $175 toward the cause. According to Christine Burns, who helped organize the event, the dresses that are left will go to local consignment shops, and will still earn money toward the library.

The Biggest Lozer weight-loss fundraiser also earned money toward the library match challenge Saturday.

The Biggest Lozer challenge was a popular event, with 25 people weighing in at Curves Saturday. “We raised $562.50 towards the library $50,000 match challenge,” said Alicia Imhoff, organizer. “But more important, we all took a step towards being healthier.”

Donna Clark, Mary Osborne and Debra Jo VanderWerff were winners of the Body By Vi giveaways, courtesy of Sally Howland.

Prizes are being given away for the greatest percentage of body weight lost in three categories: women, men and seniors. And it’s not too late to join. Just stop into Curves during normal business hours:  M-TH 7-11 a.m. and 4-7 p.m., Fri. 7-11a.m. and Sat. 9-11 for their weigh-in, measurements and a $25 entry fee.  Weigh out is in March.
