“The Foreigner” dedicated to Jack Clark


 

The Cedar Springs Community Players are both honoring the past and trying something new with their upcoming production of The Foreigner. The show is being dedicated to Jack Clark, a longtime member, who died earlier this year. The Foreigner was Jack’s favorite show and he would travel all over the state to see productions of it. There will be displays of photographs and stories about Jack’s participation in past productions at the theater.  If you have photos or a memory to share, please contact Bob Clifford at contact@cedarspringscommunityplayers.org.

The Players are also offering some fun sponsorship opportunities for their theater patrons. The Foreigner is a play with a single set and there are a number of items that appear on the set or are mentioned in the play—some of them quite humorously. Sponsors will receive special pins that they can wear during the play to show they are an official Croquet Mallet, Carrot, Spoon Rack, etc., sponsor. Sponsorships are as follows: Sauerkraut – $25; Carrot, Spoon Rack, Candle, Fork, or Lamp – $20; Apples or Fireplace – $10; Croquet Mallets, Harmonica, Suitcase, or Key to Room 7 – $5.

Sponsorships can be purchased at the theater on the day of the performance or in advance from a Players member or cast member. Sponsorships purchased in advance will be included in the program.

Friends of the Players and the cast and crew can also send well wishes to them in the program for $10. Please contact Bob Clifford at contact@cedarspringscommunityplayers.org.

Two clubs are better than one

The Rotary and Lions Clubs of Cedar Springs met together for their annual picnic Wednesday evening, August 20.

During the get-together, Rotary President Carolyn Davis asked Jack Clark, the longest sustaining Rotary member, to present the traditional door prize to Art Probst, the longest sustaining Lions member. This custom began in 2006, when the Lions bestowed the Rotarians with an actual door as a “door prize.”  Since 2006 the door prize has passed back and forth between the groups.

N-Rotary-lions2-group-webThis year Dan and Carolyn Davis upgraded the door with photos of some of the good works the Clubs have done in the community as well as informational data about each group. Although the Rotary/Lions picnics are currently centered around eating and talking, that wasn’t always the case.

The joint picnics began shortly after the Lions Club was chartered in 1959. They were held in Morley Park and the highlight of the gathering was the tug-of- war between the Clubs. One year the rope snapped and Lion Ed Hoven ended up with a broken nose, after it was accidentally jabbed by a tumbling teammate. Whether or not a broken rope and busted nose were the cause, the joint picnic moved to Gordon Park with a game of volleyball replacing the tug-of-war.

Lions President Jerry VanderWal shared that Lions does not symbolize wild jungle animal. L-I-O-N-S stands for: “Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation’s Safety,” great watchwords for every citizen.

The Lions and Rotary mottos “We Serve” and “Service Above Self,” aptly describe these two organizations. Cedar Springs is privileged to have active Rotary and Lions Clubs. Their labors benefit the whole community.
