Cub Scout presents check to Nature Center

Ryan Hess, of Cub Scout Pack 3220, presented a check of $430.66 to Howard Christensen Nature Center last Saturday, August 4.

“We are so grateful for his donation,” Kim Gillow, on behalf of the Nature Center. “He is the best!”

Ryan needed to raise money for a community project for his Cub Scout badge. His older brother had done a can drive for a student with cancer, so Ryan decided he wanted to do one for HCNC, who had lost money due to an embezzlement. In addition to the can drive, he and his mom invited the Dark Knight of Michigan and the Cosplay Crusaders to the Cedar Springs Historical Society Car Show, where people got a chance to sit in the bike back for a donation. The pack also sold their beef sticks, with the proceeds going to HCNC.

He is optimistic that they will be able to pay some bills or get another animal for the critter room. 

“I’m lucky I got to get in the $400s. It feels awesome,” he said. 

“Thanks to Cub Scout Pack 3220, The Dark Knight of Michigan, Cosplay Crusaders, and Cedar Springs Historical Museum Car Show and our community for making Ryan’s project successful!” said Ryan’s mom, Dana Hess.

The Post travels to Canada


Pictured left to right: Kim Gillow, Claire Burbank, Mary Balon, Terry Hardie.

Kim Gillow and Mary Balon, of Cedar Springs, met Claire Burbank and Terry Hardie, of Jacksonville, Florida, in Seattle to start a week-long adventure in the Canadian Rockies. They travelled by train to Vancouver then took the Canadian ViaRail overnight to Jasper, Alberta. They awoke to 6 inches of snow in the mountains. After a stop in Jasper to purchase boots and coats, they spent the next five days roaming the area, including a stay at Sunwapta Falls and a visit to the Columbia Ice Fields. The scenery was breathtaking, the food delicious and the people were warm and welcoming, they said.

Thank you, Kim and Mary, for taking us with you to the Canadian Rockies!

The Post recently traveled to Dresden, Germany, with Kim Gillow and Mary Balon, of Solon Township, and their friend Harry Eastwood, of Australia. They spent two weeks travelling through Poland, Germany, and Austria visiting important WWII sites, including concentration camps, the Nuremburg courthouse and Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest. This picture was taken half way through the trip in the town square in Dresden.

“Every day was interesting and informative,” said Kim, “and the local guides were wonderful.”

Thanks for taking us to Germany with you!

The Post recently traveled to Alaska with Julie Kent and Candy Jacobs, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Mary Balon and Kim Gillow, of Cedar Springs.

The group travelled by train from Fairbanks to Anchorage. The Salmon Bake Cabins at Denali Park were just one of the fun places we stayed. “We had the issue covering the bear sightings and had just seen a momma grizzly and 2 cubs while on a bus tour into the park,” they said. “We also saw a momma moose and her baby in a kettle pond next to the road, lots of caribou and Denali (Mount McKinley) was visible top to bottom for over 12 hours. It was awe-inspiring!”

Thank you Mary and Kim and friends for taking us with you!
