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.

Gown fundraiser to benefit library


Do you have a prom dress you’d like to donate for the upcoming gown fundraiser to benefit the library? The gown fundraising committee needs you to drop it off as soon as possible at Cedar Springs City Hall.

Would you like to help the Cedar Springs Library get closer to the $50,000 matching grant for the building fund? Drop off a gently-used prom dress or gown at Cedar Springs City Hall and get a tax receipt of $100 for a long gown, and $50 for a short one.  And better yet, if you have a daughter that needs a dress for Swirl or prom, bring her to the sale, on January 7, at the Cedar Springs High School media center, from 8 a.m. to noon. Short dresses will be $20 each, and long gowns $35 each. Proceeds from the sale will go towards the library’s matching grant.
According to Library Director Donna Clark, they have collected $7,000 so far toward the grant, and have $43,000 more to go. The fundraising committee has met three times, and there are several fundraisers coming up, including a hockey game, a spa fundraiser, a coffee and tea fundraiser, and Big Boy has offered to have an ongoing fundraising meal every other month this year.
If you have questions on the gown fundraiser, please call Christine Burns at (616-788-8945 ) or Linda Lehman (616-970-1368).
