Anna Carter, a fifth grader at Cedar View, wanted to make a difference this holiday season so she asked her principal if she could conduct a food drive for families of soldiers who are deployed.
Anna set up collections boxes around the school and advertised with posters. She also went on the Cedar View Morning Show and asked student to consider contributing to this worthy cause. Students really rallied behind this request. Anna’s collection was enough to provide food for 72 military families and 8 non-military families.
Anna not only collected the food but helped pack the boxes at her church. “During the holiday season it really is better to give than receive. I was able to meet several of the military families and it really left a good warm feeling inside of me,” said Anna.
What a wonderful person at the young age of 11 making such a difference in the community. Cedar View students have not only helped out with contribution but have learned about giving through Anna’s efforts.

If you are looking for something to lift the mid-January blues, head out this weekend to Howard City’s second annual Winterfest, January 14 and 15.
“The community support has been great and our team is working to make the Winterfest even bigger and better than last year,” said Howard City Village Manager Mark Rambo. “We have a day filled with events for all ages, including games, food, music and snowmobiling.”
Added to the slate of activities this year are some adult team activities sure to be good for a few laughs. They include a four-person wooden ski race, tug of war, frozen chicken bowling, and bed races. Those interested can register a team of four on the day of the event.
Another new event is the chili cook off, sure to warm up participants and give them a tasty meal to boot.
Other activities include a polar plunge, snowman building contest, snowmobile ride to Cadillac and more! Visit howardcity.org for complete details.
