“While on vacation in Las Vegas the first week of October, my mother, Priscilla Shaffer of Cedar Springs, insisted on going to the Hoover Dam to walk the new bypass bridge,” wrote Lourelle McKnight. “Before the walk we stopped at the Dam and pulled out her Cedar Springs Post and took a picture of all of us! It was a great time.”

Thanks so much to all of you for taking us with you to Hoover Dam!

The Post traveled to Las Vegas, with Dave and Debbie Kane, of Ensley Center, for the graduation of their youngest son from college. The photo here was taken on Sunday, September 27, and it was 97 degrees.

The Post then traveled with them to Casper, Wyoming, where they celebrated their granddaughter’s third birthday a few days later. It was  a big change in temperature, at only 60 degrees!

Thank you Dave and Debbie, for taking us with you!

Loralee, Harriet, Nita and Sandi all took a road trip to Hoover Dam. “It was a beautiful, warm day, and an awesome experience,” said Loralee. “It’s one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and to learn how they built the dam is amazing. It’s something all should see.”

The Post goes to Las Vegas


The Post traveled to Las Vegas on December 6, to celebrate Trevor and Alexander Hemry’s 21st birthdays. The brothers are graduates of the Cedar Springs High school class of 2011.

The trip consisted of two stops—The Strip, and a visit to Pawn Stars.

Trevor and Alex enjoyed the trip, as this was their first time flying. Seven other family members joined in on the fun, too. “Although the weather was in the 30s and 40s during the day, while we were there we still had fun sight seeing and participating in all of the activities Vegas has to offer,” said mom Jeanine Hemry.

One of the activities they wanted to do while in Vegas was to visit the famous Pawn Shop that is shown on the History channel. They were doing some filming at the time of their visit so they didn’t have the opportunity to meet any of the cast. They did however get a glimpse of Chumlee as he left the set.

As they prepared to return to the hotel, they were presented with an opportunity to ride in a 15-20 passenger Hummer Limousine.

This trip was special, since this was the first time all four brothers have been on a vacation together in over 10 years. “Life has a tendency to take family members down various paths and sometimes it becomes harder to get everyone together,” explained Jeanine. She said this was a trip to celebrate the milestone of turning 21 and a time of celebration as Alex is leaving in January to join the Air Force. We wish him the best! And thanks for taking the Post with you on your trip!

If readers are going on vacation, take a copy of the Post with you, snap a photo, and send it to us with some brief information to news@cedarspringspost.com.
