A special man that lived his life in Cedar Springs has passed on. Mike Holton has left this town a better place. Mike and Alice have been so gracious in their gifts to this town. The new track at Skinner Field, the crosswalk from school to Morley Park, new computers for our scholars, paving the roads in Elmwood cemetery and many other kindnesses that they have given us. Mike was proud of his children that they raised and so are we. Mike Holten was a hard working self made success that young people can learn from. I was and am proud to know him.

Are you looking for something fun for your kids to do? Do you love good music? Then you won’t want to miss next week’s fun family event, August 20, at Morley Park in Cedar Springs.
The Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation and area businesses are bringing not only the last concert in the park for the summer, but a special children’s concert and child-friendly activities as well.
The fun starts at 5:30 p.m., with games and activities for the kids, including three inflatables; the Cedar Springs Fire Department and other Fire Departments will be on hand with their trucks and emergency vehicles (and water hoses!); and 250 water bottles will be given away.
The fun continues at 6 p.m. with a special children’s concert called “Dilly Songs” with Aaron Vanderwege. All inflatables and games will last until 7:30 p.m.
At 7 p.m. Punch n’ Company, featuring Jake Mellema, will perform. There will be door prizes and concessions available.
According to Parks and Rec Director Amanda Gerhardt, they wanted to do something special for area families, since they had such a good response to Maranda’s Park party last summer. “We couldn’t have done this without the additional support from our partner organizations working together to make it happen,” said Gerhardt. “It’s going to be a great activity.”
